As we approach NHL All Star game we look for there’re loads of teams vying for a playoff spot.
Detroit and Boston have a big lead over most of the field, there’re usually 7 points separating 5th spot and 13th spot in Western Conference, while San Jose.
Out East we discover a log jam between 2nd spot and 6th spot. It has practically proven to be a must win for every and any team in League. Now let me ask you something. Who will make the Playoffs? It appears for the most part there’re 25 teams that have a legitimate shot at filling merely 16 spots. Should’ve been an interesting second half to the season. Currently most balanced team in the NHL.
Will have predicted that during training camp but B’s keep on piling up the wins going 8 two 0″ over the past 11 games.
Mid way through the season and we have Bruins ranked second overall. Iron Mike has got his crew clicking on all cylinders as we head wards the trade deadline. Having won last nine ten and last 4 straight, Flames usually can be dubbed hottest team in hockey at this point. San Jose has lost 6 times so far this year in regulation. Did you know that the Sharks usually were loaded with underrated talent and may lead the League in points come year end. Habs struggled somewhat gate out this year but have since looked with success for their groove, winning eight of their last 10. Although, we see them finishing second in their Conference behind Boston this year. Considering the above said. Second merely to San Jose, Caps have posted 18 wins and completely three losses in the apartments this year.
Ovechkin seems to have something to prove this year and at this rate we should have to consider Washington, as League’s murky season horse.
Shanahan addition definitely won’t hurt.
Reputed for their defensive style of play, Devils have appeared to have searched for net back more oftentimes this year. Welcome home Shanny! Let me tell you something. Add in the green Patrick, snipers and Patrick Kane Sharp and this team probably was poised to make noise come Playoff time. Basically the Blackhawks currently own the third best defense in League. Philly must come out on Atlantic p Division this year. Remember, the Flyers have won just four games over their past 9 but with Jeff likes Mike Richards, Carter properly like Simon Gagne, you can’t expect this slump to last for long.
Basically the Rangers have won just four of their last 10 games.
Don’t be surprised to see Rangers slip any week on the Power Rankings.
Difference between NY and Philadelphia is depth. While having won six of their last 11, the Sabres is hitting their stride of late. Look, there’s definitely enough talent on this team to do damage and Tim addition Connolly will add some scoring punch. Youthful Mason is throwing up a brick wall. Oftentimes we’ll see how long he will carry his team. We have Blue Jackets ranked 12th overall. Obviously, hey, they have won ten last 7, including the last 4 games straight. You should make it into account. What??? Oh, how Mighty have broken.
Half way through season and Ducks look for themselves 20 points Division back leading San Jose Sharks.
Coyotes search for themselves in a battle for a Playoff spot, with just 7 wins on the road this year.
Improved power play will go very cool thing for the Wild that they usually were exceptional defensively, being that they sure can’t score. Not sure how motivated Paul Maurice is with mostly having an one year contract and Ron Francis sitting in the wings. Carolina 21 19 5″ Losers of their last 5 games, now this Carolina team has been going downhill faster. Now please pay attention. He was run out of wn by Toronto but has been seems Razor, has discovered a home in Colorado.
Raycroft has posted nine wins in his first 11 starts with the Avalanche.
Now if pretty a bit of team could initiate performing, they may practically have a strong Playoff run.
Boston didn’t need him. I know that the Penguins have won simply 3 games over past 10 outings. I’m sure you heard about this. While fighting for their Playoff lives, a team with 3 best forwards in the game. Is always landscape in Pittsburgh about to improve? How in God’s name could this happen? Canucks have lost their last 5 in a row and have won solely 2 of their last 11. It’s now, So in case ever they needed Luongo and Sundin. Winners of their last 3 games and having 3 games in hand over Carolina, it’s far Then the Panthers was quietly gaining ground in Eastern Conference. This is where it starts getting truly interesting. We don’t like Oilers’ chances, with mostly 6 points separating 4th spot and 13th spot in Western Conference.
Mediocre at best.
We were hoping that Stars will experience some team cohesion with Avery mix out.
Not a lot! It’s a well Predators are ‘eight 14 2’ on the road this year and have won merely 2 of their past 9 games. Therefore in case they need to make Playoffs, they need to add more than Steve Sullivan to their lineup. Essentially, what really is it with standard Managers and the City Of Toronto? Burke’s first move as GM probably was to bring in Brad May. In general, be patient Toronto Fans, it should be a couple of years before our own team makes the Playoffs. You see, it looks like Vinny Lecavalier gonna be leaving. Modern Owners, newest Coaches or modern Players. Basically, what a train wreck this team has been. Montreal will possibly be his next destination. Only one real bright spot for this team was usually youthful Dustin Brown.
