    Dallas
    Anaheim

    Minnesota--wins division
    Colorado

    Re: NHL: Who makes/misses the playoffs?

    I love hockey, but I do not follow the regular season. Once the playoffs start then I pay attention. The problem with the NHL is the regular season means nothing because everyone makes it.

    I haven't followed pro hockey since I was in college. I couldn't even tell you who the best players are other than Crosby.

    Re: NHL: Who makes/misses the playoffs?

    First off, I should state that I follow the East a lot closer than the West because I'm a Leafs fan. Like you, I think Philadelphia will fall off the map and I believe Buffalo will be passed by a determined Washington (who benefits greatly from their remaining schedule against Southeastern teams). The West is a little more cut and dried, and again I don't follow them as closely, so I don't see any change in the current field of eight, although their seedings will likely change.

    East
    Pittsburgh*
    Montreal*
    Carolina*
    New Jersey
    Ottawa
    New York (Rangers)
    Boston
    Washington

    West
    Detroit*
    San Jose*
    Colorado*
    Anaheim
    Dallas
    Minnesota
    Calgary
    Vancouver

    And wouldn't NBC kill for that first-round East matchup of Pittsburgh and Washington?

    Unfortunately, the Blackhawks aren't going to make it this year but they will be a force to be reckon with next year.

    Is Canadian Soccer making a comeback?
