LA is not out of the woods. They haven't been that great over their last stretch... Budaj has looked good with 3 or 4 straight shut outs but he's been hiding a lot of warts on that team which are still there.

They are not by any means a lock to be in the playoffs.

I still can't believe how well Budaj has played for them this year. When Quick went down in the first game I didn't think he would be able to carry the load like he has.

Fabbri has 29 points (11+18) this season. Not an insignificant loss.

Of course, this could just mark the beginning of the Kenny Agostino show... or not.

Cheers to Flames being the former instead of the latter.
Canucks will be the the tank

Their Feb and March schedule is a monster. They finish bottom 5.

Kings are far from clinched.

This is not a two horse race for WC2 spot.

There are two months left in the season. The standings can change a lot week to week so this thread is extremely premature. It does appear that the Flames and Kings are intertwined with 8 points up for grab H2H.

Dammit - you just know that Agostino is going to come up, be a good player down the stretch, and the Blues are going to out the Flames the the last wild card.

The Canucks could pass us if they win their games at hand. The Stars would be one point behind. This team is way too inconsistent to count out the teams below us.

We could also go on another streak and catch up to Edmonton again.

We have 4 games against the Kings. That's 16 head-to-head points.

We could control our destiny by taking advantage. Taking 3 or 4 could set the Kings back enough.

Both teams are far too inconsistent to worry about winning all their games, arguably moreso than the Flames in that regard.

So far it's looking like he could very well be. He's leading the farm team in his rookie season. Were you looking for something more from him?

He's a project prospect, they aren't fast tracking him.

Canucks are on a 6 game road trip starting tomorrow going to some tough cities. They have 6 wins on the road all season. If they don't get 6/12 pts at a minimum, I think they can say goodbye to the post season dance.

If I had to wager on this question today re Western conference:

i would only list Minnesota, Chicago and San Jose as teams who will be in the playoffs.

i would list Dallas, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Arizona and Colorado as teams who will not be in the playoffs.

The other 6 are uncertain and i would not wager on them making it or not making it. But i would bet 5 of them will make it.

Well, if you believe that each game vs divisional opponents is a "4 point game", being that you can take 2 points away from your opponent while gaining 2 points on them, it is.

What did you think I meant by head-to-head?

A-duh.

Sure, people call them 4 pointers but it's just a phrase. There aren't 4 points to actually be had.

There are 4 games. The best scenario for one team is 8 points with no points to the other team (you don't actually lose 8 points).

A-duh.
