#2278616 4/5 GDT : Devils 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by RedWingsRox on 05 April 2012 - 09:40 PM

So the Preds just won and are back in 4th by a point over us. Hawks/Wild are in OT. Here's hoping Hawks lose in OT, Preds lose their final game and we win on Saturday. Seems like a hell of a lot to ask for. Ugh.


A more likely scenario: Chicago wins tonight. Nashville wins their final game. We lose to Chicago and we end up in 6th. Seriously.

This is how Bylsma should have responded:

At this point, I'm just happy that we got 2 pts ... what a relief!

Win and we're back on track to get 4th spot. Lose and we're on our way to 6th spot. Pretty pivotal game.

Yes, of course bring him back ... and put him into the front office for a cushy job like Ozzie and Draper.

If the Wings make it the 3rd round, I will consider that a good benchmark for a "deep run". Anything less is an early exit.


At this rate, we'll be lucky if we win 1 round.

Well, now what do all of you say who insisted, 'Don't pick your poison BS'? It is a real possibility that we'll be in 5th, seriously ... you wouldn't prefer to play whoever is in No. 3 over Nashville? But come to think of it, doesn't really matter, even if we can get past round 1, we'll get our arses kicked in round 2. Let's face it, this team isn't Stanley Cup Finals material.

So I read now that we let an AHL goalie who has never played an NHL game beat us ... :huh:

You are right, your friend is a dork.

At this point:

1st choice - 4th
2nd choice - 6th
3rd choice - 5th

So in short, try your best to win every game but if you're sitting in 5th, just try your best to rest Lids, Dats, Z in the last few games *wink wink* :cool:

Regardless of what happens, I am NOT afraid of SJ this year. They are not the SJ of last year. I'd hate the travel in round 1 though.

So, hypothetically, if Nashville overtakes us and we end up in 5th, don't you think it would be prudent to drop to 6th if possible.

I agree with OP and seriously think that we should aim for 6th. It's not that we don't want to face all the good teams to get to the SCF, if we are in 6th, we will face good teams in round 2 and Conference finals ... we want to face them as healthy as possible. Playoffs is a game of attrition, how many of your best players stay healthy till the end.

Unfortunately, I don't have very high hopes for tonight.
