I don't put a lot of weight in quality of competition. Every year at this time people talk about easy opponents, but bottom feeders play loose, and any team can beat any other team at any time.
How true. How many times have the Flames gone on a tear after being mathematically eliminated.

I made this point when someone else noted the fact that the Sharks are presently on a five-game win streak. Prior to that streak they had a 3-3-1 record in the same stretch in which the Flames ran the table.

This is why Enoch dispels the significance of schedule strength; much for the same reason that I don't find arguments from current performance particularly compelling. Every team will go through multiple periods of ebb and flow all season long. With the slimmest of margins for error between the Sharks and Flames, there is virtually no good way to handicap the Division. It really does amount to a coin toss: neither team has a real advantage; neither team is really in the chase position; neither team is individually setting the he pace.

After Tuesday's games

Sharks, Flames, and Coyotes won in regulation
Jets, Predators, and Blues lost in regulation


1. San Jose (70--43-19-8) 43 ROW, 94 pts--first in the Western Conference and in the Pacific Division (2nd overall now)
2. Calgary (70--43-20-7) 43 ROW, 93 pts--second in the Pacific Division (3rd overall now)

3. Winnipeg (69--40-25-4) 38 ROW, 84 pts--first in the Central Division
4. Nashville (71--39-27-5) 35 ROW, 83 pts--second in the Central Division
5. Las Vegas (70--38-27-5) 35 ROW, 81 pts--third in the Pacific Division
6. St. Louis (69--36-26-7) 35 ROW, 79 pts--third in the Central Division
7. Dallas (69--36-28-5) 36 ROW, 77 pts--fourth in the Central Division
8. Arizona (70--35-30-5) 31 ROW, 75 pts--fourth in the Pacific Division
__________________________________________________

Minnesota (70--33-29-8) 32 ROW, 74 pts--fifth in the Central Division
Colorado (70--30-28-12) 29 ROW, 72 pts--sixth in the Central Division


The number of games played are first and in bold.


It is obvious that the Flames and Sharks are running away from the pack and that's why there's a gap between the Flames and Jets. The 7th to 10th place teams have been added to the list. It's going to be a crazy finish with far less stress for all of us Flames fans looking from the top safely and watching the chaos below.

Since it isn't the snek thread and there is no threat of punches to the taint, I stand by my comment.

With the x by the Flames name the next next target to set the sight on is Home ice and then the Division.
Home ice is tied to Vegas and currently sits at 5.5.
Division is sitting at 10.

Flames, Sharks and Knights all have 10 game remaining. SJ plays Vegas twice down the stretch and we all know we have that one game left against SJ at the end of the month. Both the Flames and Sharks will play 6 of their 10 games before they meet.

The race for the Wild card is quite sad when you look at how the winning team will probably have 10 points below the normal snek requirement. It is probably a 4 horse race for that final spot. I add Chicago because they have a couple games against Colorado and one against Arizona left.

Both Edmonton and Vancouver have to win out to have a realistic chance, so it is just academic for them right now. Elimination day is probably a week away for them.

SJ has also clinched with the Minny loss.

Quite the battle for that last spot and I give the Oilers early next week before they are mathematically eliminated.

8 games left.

4-3-1 would give us 108 points at 50 row.

San Jose needs 7-0-1 for 109 at 50 row.

Noice!
