We can't get first, we can only get fifth, sixth, or fourth, and fourth would require a bunch of winning and help from Nashville.
Even if we get fourth, it gets us one more home game which might not mean as much as their stellar defense...
I am going to say it, the Wings would do better to fall to sixth and face one of the LA, DAL, PHX, SJ bunch...
Dallas and LA look like the most likely ones to finish third. We can take Dallas easy, and LA would be tough.
The bonus would be no matter what we can say if we fell to sixth, either Chicago or Nashville would be out in the first round.
I cannot come up with a better argument than that... yet I have to say it everytime I am at a bar and come across someone rooting for the Wings. Sometimes you have to root for them to lose so they can win.
I just hope their are no more injuries, and the team starts looking better like they did against Carolina at times... but beyond that I hope they lose every last game to get to sixth. I figure they need to be at or below .500 to get sixth and playing the last game against Chicago gives us an excellent shot at taking a dive.

I know a lot of ppl joke but I think this effects the D much more than people realize. Quincey still looks nervous and Kindl and Commie are streaky at best. E eats up a ton of minutes, plays the PK and has been solid for the team. I know all the Ericsson haters will be thrilled but I think it will effect the team with the lines and chemistry....I think it's a loss
