my dream is that we dont bring back cleary (gets on my nerves, BAD) or draper but i doubt that will come true.

Why does everyone seem to ALWAYS forget that Cleary has a no trade clause and a few more years on his contract? Draper also has another year. So "not bringing them back" would entail trades. Cleary simply cannot be traded. Period. End of discussion. Not even a fantasy, 1000 to 1 odds chance. And if Ken Holland traded 4 time Stanley Cup Champion and long time Wing Kris Draper in the last year of his contract, well, he and the Red Wings organization wouldn't be the group everyone here claims to be a fan of.

I know you said "dream", but it's annoying how repetitive you people are about things that just can't happen. And your lines ignore real life too... no way Z and Pasha are on a line together, and there's no way Bert stays on the 3s with as high as Babs and Kenny are on him.

And we all know that if it were Homer that did that, the goal would be called back and he'd be given 2 minutes in the box...

1. San Jose
2. Chicago
3. Vancouver
4. Phoenix
5. Detroit
6. Los Angeles
7. Nashville
8. Colorado


1. Washington
2. New Jersey
3. Buffalo
4. Pittsburgh
5. Ottawa
6. Boston
7. Philadelphia
8. Montreal

WEST: I say Colorado over San Jose in 7 (Jumbo and Nabby are already on the golf course), Nashville over Chicago in 7 (Chicago's only chance is to get early leads. If they play defensive, low scoring games, Rinne will OWN Niemi...or Huet if Q is foolish enough to start him), Vancouver over LA in 5 (LA is still a year away from a deep playoff run), and Detroit over Phoenix in 6 (Yotes goaltending will steal them a couple games, but they don't have the experience or depth to beat a Detroit team that's finally healthy).

Vancouver over Colorado and Detroit over Nashville in the second round. Detroit over Vancouver in the Conference Finals.

EAST: I say Washington over Montreal in 4 (Won't be pretty or close), New Jersey over Philadelphia in 5 (Goaltending will be the factor, plain and simple), Buffalo over Boston in 5 (Ryan Miller's going to do well this spring), and Ottawa over Pittsburgh in 7 (Hey, I can hope, right? Ottawa is underrated and s***tsburgh might underestimate Brian Elliot who's been great, while Fleury has been average at best lately.)

Washington over Ottawa and Buffalo over New Jersey in the second round. Buffalo over Washington in the Conference Finals.

Detroit over Buffalo in 7 for the Cup.

15% seems waaay off unless you are buying heavily into the Wings win streak and the Hawks struggling. Mathematically the Wings only have a 7% chance to take the Division even if they win out.

I was considering the streak, as well as the situation with the Hawks goaltending and defense. Mathematically, yes, only 7%, but I'd double that considering how good this team is gelling right now, as well as Huet/Niemi/Campbell/etc.

What he means is division winners are always the top 3 in rankings, so we can not pass Van, otherwise Pho would have already. The highest the Wings can get Mathematically is 5th I beleive.

With games in hand they may catch Pho if they lost every game the rest of the year maybe, but I would have to check again.

The Wings can get the 2nd or 3rd seed if Chicago only gets 3 points in their last 6 games (the last of which is against us) and we win out (which, given the schedule and way the team has been playing, isn't that hard to imagine) and Vancouver stumbles a little bit more.

It's a long shot, but the Wings still have about a 15% chance of clinching the division with a regulation win on the last day of the season. Which I would LOVE since it would completely destroy the Hawks' morale.
