As we approach NHL All Star game we look for there’re quite a few teams vying for a playoff spot. Let me ask you something. Who will make the Playoffs? Gonna be an interesting second half to the season. San Jose and Boston have an enormous lead over some of field, for the most part there’re completely 5 points separating 5th spot and 13th spot in Western Conference, while Detroit. You should make it into account. It has practically happen to be a must win for any and almost any team in League.
It appears for the most part there’re 25 teams that have a legitimate shot at filling just 16 spots. Out East we discover a log jam between 2nd spot and the 6th spot. Should have predicted that during training camp but the B’s keep on piling up wins going 8 two 0″ over the past 9 games. You should get this seriously. Mid way through 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 the last 4 straight, Flames could be dubbed hottest team in hockey at this point.
San Jose has lost just 6 times so far this year in regulation. Sharks are always loaded with under rated talent and may lead the League in points come year end. Habs struggled somewhat gate out this year but have since looked for their groove, winning eight of their last 9. We see them finishing second in their Conference behind Boston this year. Ovechkin seems to have something to prove this year and at this rate we will have to consider Washington, as League’s murky season horse. It’s a well second basically to San Jose, Caps have posted 18 wins and solely three losses indoors this year. Shanahan addition surely won’t hurt. Fact, famous for their defensive style of play, the Devils have appeared to have looked for the net back more oftentimes this year. However, welcome home Shanny! You see, Blackhawks currently own third best defense in League.
Add in junior Patrick Kane, Patrick and snipers Sharp and this team usually was poised to make noise come Playoff time.
Philly must come out on Atlantic p Division this year.
I’m sure that the Flyers have won merely four games over their past 11 but with Jeff likes Mike Richards, Carter or Simon Gagne, you can’t expect this slump to last for long. Hey, do not be surprised to see the Rangers slip any week on the Power Rankings. Considering above said. Accordingly the Rangers have as well won four of their last 9 games. That’s right! The difference between NY and Philadelphia was usually depth. Besides, whenever having won six of their last 11, the Sabres surely is hitting their stride of late. Lots of us know that there is obviously enough talent on this team to do damage and Tim addition Connolly will add some scoring punch. Junior Mason was throwing up a brick wall.
We have Blue Jackets ranked 12th overall.
We’ll see how long he will carry his team.
Hey, they have won ten last 7, including last 3 games straight. For instance, what??? Now look. Oh, how Mighty have downfallen. Essentially, half way through season and Ducks look for themselves 20 points Division back leading San Jose Sharks. Did you know that an improved power play will go Coyotes search for themselves in a battle for a Playoff spot, with merely 7 wins on the road this year. That said, the Wild have lit lamp merely 111 times this year. Remember, it’s pretty cool thing for the Wild that they have been exceptional defensively, since they sure can’t score. For example, talk about boring hockey.
Carolina 21 19 five their last Losers 5 games, so this Carolina team is probably going downhill faster. Not sure how motivated Paul Maurice is with solely having an one year contract and Ron Francis sitting in wings. Now if some of the team could start off performing, they may practically have a strong Playoff run. Raycroft has posted nine wins in his first 9 starts with the Avalanche. He was run out of wn by Toronto but has been seems Razor, has discovered a home in Colorado. Boston didn’t look for him. So, has been landscape in Pittsburgh about to consider improving? How in the hell could this happen? Basically the Penguins have won just 3 games over the past 10 outings. Now let me tell you something. Whenever fighting for their Playoff lives, a team with the 3 better forwards in the game. Then the Canucks have lost their last 4 in a row and have won entirely 2 of their last 9., no doubt, it’s now, So in case ever they needed Luongo and Sundin. Just think for a moment. Winners of their last 4 games and having 3 games in hand over Carolina, So it’s far Actually the Panthers are quietly gaining ground in the Eastern Conference. Mediocre at best.
We don’t like Oilers’ chances, with entirely 7 points separating 4th spot and 13th spot in Western Conference.
Not a lot!
We were hoping that Stars should experience some team cohesion with Avery mix out. By the way, the Predators are 8142 on road this year and have won 2 of their past 11 games. Now please pay attention. If they need to make Playoffs, they need to add more than Steve Sullivan to their lineup. Burke’s first move as GM was always to bring in Brad May. What’s it with key Managers and the City Of Toronto? In fact, be patient Toronto Fans, it should be a few years before your own team even makes the Playoffs. Seriously. What a train wreck this team is. Newest modern Coaches, modern as good as Owners Players. Although, montreal will probably be his next destination. It looks like Vinny Lecavalier should be leaving quickly. Losers of their last 3 in a row. The main real bright spot for this team is probably the green Dustin Brown. As a result, Thrashers have won two of their last 11 and hold the Leagues horrible goals against with 160.
