Wings need 21 wins out of 32 games to make the playoffs. It's widely accepted that you need around 95 points, 21 wins is 42 points. Wings are currently at 54 points.
So 21 games out of 32, that's a 65% win record. Unless Wings start pulling off consecutive stretches of wins, we're not going to make it.
The east is terrible this year. I'm thinking it will be one of those 88 point 8th seed years. So that's a solid 17-15 record. Or if you'd like 13-11-8. Nice .530 hockey.
