As we approach the NHL All Star game we find So there’re numerous teams vying for a playoff spot.
It has almost become a must win for every and each team in the League.
And now here’s a question. Who will make the Playoffs? San Jose and Boston have a huge lead over some of the field, mostly there’re only six points separating 5th spot and 13th spot in the Western Conference, while Detroit. Out East we discover a log jam between the 2nd spot and the 6th spot. It appears look, there’re 25 teams that have a legitimate shot at filling just 16 spots. Known should’ve been an interesting second half to the season.
Currently the most balanced team in the NHL. Should have predicted that during training camp but the B’s just keep on piling up the wins going ‘8 2 0’ over the past ten games. Notice, iron Mike has got his crew clicking on all cylinders as we head wards the trade deadline. You should take it into account. Having won 9 of the last 10 and the last four straight, the Flames can be dubbed the hottest team in hockey at this point. There’s a lot more info about it here. San Jose has lost just six times so far this year in regulation. So Sharks are loaded with underrated talent and may lead the League in points come year end. Also, whenever winning 8 of their last ten, the Habs struggled somewhat out of the gate this year but have since found their groove.
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 should have to consider Washington, as the League’s dark horse of the season.
Second only to San Jose, the Caps have posted 18 wins and only 3 losses in the premises this year. Addition of Shanahan certainly won’t hurt. Oftentimes known for their defensive style of play, the Devils have appeared to have found the back of the net more often this year. With that said, welcome home Shanny! Blackhawks currently own the third best defense in the League. Add in the young snipers, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp and this team is poised to make noise come Playoff time. On p of that, philly should come out on p of the Atlantic Division this year. Considering the above said. Therefore the Flyers have won just 4 games over their past ten but with the likes of Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and Simon Gagne, you can’t expect this slump to last for long. Now please pay attention. It’s an interesting fact that the Rangers have also won just 4 of their last ten games.
Actually the difference between NYC and Philadelphia is depth. Please do not be surprised to see the Rangers slip any week on the Power Rankings. Whenever having won 6 of their last ten, the Sabres is likely to be hitting their stride of late. Mostly there’s certainly enough talent on this team to do damage and the addition of Tim Connolly will add some scoring punch. Young Mason was throwing up a brick wall. Hey, they have won the last 7 of 10, including the last three games straight. What the??? Basically, we’ll see how long he can carry his team. Of course, we have the Blue Jackets ranked 12th overall. Oh, how the Mighty have fallen. Half way through the season and the Ducks find themselves 20 points back of the Division leading San Jose Sharks. You should take this seriously. By the way, an improved power play will go Basically the Coyotes find themselves in a battle for a Playoff spot, with just seven wins on the road this year.
The Wild have lit the lamp just 111 times this year.
It’s a wonderful thing for the Wild that they are exceptional defensively, being that they sure can’t score. Talk about boring hockey. A well-known fact that is. Not sure how motivated Paul Maurice is with only having an one year contract and Ron Francis sitting in the wings. Anyways, carolina 21195″ Losers of their last four games, now this Carolina team is going downhill fast. Boston didn’t need him. Raycroft has posted 9 wins in his first ten starts with the Avalanche.
He was run out of wn by Toronto but is seems Razor, has found a home in Colorado. Now if quite a bit of the team could start performing, they may actually have a strong Playoff run. Basically the Penguins have won just two games over the past ten outings. Is the landscape in Pittsburgh about to change? Furthermore, how in hell could this happen? Although, while fighting for their Playoff lives, a team with the two best forwards in the game. Usually, it’s now, if ever they needed Luongo and Sundin. Have you heard about something like that before? The Canucks have lost their last four in a row and have won only three of their last ten. Consequently, the Panthers been quietly gaining ground in the Eastern Conference. Generally, winners of their last three games and having three games in hand over Carolina, And so it’s far a lot! For instance, we were hoping that the Stars should experience some team cohesion with Avery out of the mix. Now look, the Predators are 8142″ on the road this year and have won just three of their past ten games. So in case they look for to make the Playoffs, they need to add more than Steve Sullivan to their lineup. Burke’s first move as GM is to bring in Brad May. What’s it with General Managers and the City Of Toronto? It’s a well be patient Toronto Fans, it should be a couple of years before your team even makes the Playoffs. That said, montreal will likely be his next destination.
It looks like Vinny Lecavalier might be leaving soon.
What a train wreck this team is.
New Owners, new Coaches, new Players.a single real bright spot for this team is the young Dustin Brown. Losers of their last three in a row. Thrashers have won 2 of their last ten and hold the Leagues worst goals against with 160. Perhaps it’s time to blow it up and rebuild. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. Eugene must be pulling his hair out. Make sure you leave a few comments about it. St. Actually, does anyone ever talk about the Blues?
