We are looking solid to get in.

100 pts seems to get us ~50% chance of top 3 in the division.
94 pts gives us >50% to make the playoffs
97 pts puts us at 98.5% or better to get in the playoffs, with 70% chance of being the 7 seed or higher and avoiding Tampa.

This is from sportsclubstats, so simulation based. We want Montreal and/or Columbus to lose in order to avoid being 8th or 9th.

Tampa is in outer space, Boston has 10 pts on us, but everyone else is catchable. We are 4th in the metro behind Washington, Pittsburgh, and NYI. We have a not impossible shot at the division given that we play the Caps twice and have games in hand on everyone...specifically 2 games on PIT.

Remaining games:

WSH: 2
PHI: 2
PIT, TOR, NJD


Washington	96   44-24-8  6 GR
NY Islanders 95 44-25-7 6 GR
Pittsburgh 95 42-24-11 5 GR
Carolina 91 42-26-7 7 GR
Columbus 86 41-30-4 7 GR
Philadelphia 80 36-32-8 6 GR


Anyhoo... it will be fun to watch. We are actually fighting for a decent seed as opposed to the usual routine of having a hail mary's chance of 8th place then inevitably ending up in 9th or 10th.

At Washington tonight. A win puts us at 99.4% to make the playoffs



[Edited on March 26, 2019 at 12:56 PM. Reason : I like how 0-0-7 supposedly locks us into the playoffs where 4-3-0 leaves room for doubt]

no questioning their effort, second half of this game has been intense

also re: playoffs -- it's great if we make it of course but we really need to avoid tampa bay in the first round

All these scenarios saying we're 90+% in... we gotta finish this shit out. If we don't make the playoffs this year it'll be a really hard pill to swallow

i mean basically we have to count on beating the flyers 2x and devils once and I think we are golden, but if we lose one of those and have to take one of Pens or Leafs instead we are in trouble

1 point above Montreal for the last wildcard spot. No more room for error or we're gonna miss the playoffs again. Really need to play for WC1 to avoid the Tampa buzzsaw

Was looking at the tie breaker rules in case it came down to that. I think I have this right.

Team...Pts...ROW...GD
Canes..78....42.....19
Colum..77....44.....21
Montr...77....41.....13

First tie breaker is ROW, then earned points in head to head games*, then goal differential

*If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included.

I think Columbus would beat us on ROW in any scenario where we are tied
If Montreal ends up tied with us in ROW, they would beat us in head-to-head because of that stupid caveat. We beat them 2 out of 3 games but the first one gets thrown out because of that rule. In the two games that count, we got 2 pts (W/L) and they got 3 pts.(W/OTL)

In a 3-way tie Columbus would get in on ROW and then then the tie breaker would be applied to us and Montreal.

Just win baby

That Aho deal was well crafted. Average value is really good for us but with it being front-loaded with bonuses, man, in the 1st year of the contract we'd have to pay him $21.87m. That was a well-crafted contract by the Canadians to mess with us, haha.

If the price was right, I agree. At his best, he's an element we need more of.

I am a bit wary about his declined production after the trade deadline, and whatever was going on between him and Brindy during the playoffs. It sure sounded like the staff thought he could play but Ferland was making the call to sit...but since we can't know what really went on i'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

[Edited on July 9, 2019 at 2:23 PM. Reason : very strange that his stock has fallen so far that he still isn't signed.]

Agreed, no reason to speculate. If Brindy wants him and his price is good, they'll sign him. I think he just wants more than he is going to get.

His stock has fallen because he couldn't go more than 3 games without going to the locker room with some sort of injury

That would be his shoulder, rumored to be a torn rotator, which he tried to play through and made worse. Eventually requiring surgery, supposedly.

Canes have agreed to terms with Brock McGinn on a two-year, $4.2 million contract. The deal will pay McGinn $1.9 million in 2019-20 and $2.3 million in 2020-21.

I love Brock's game and grit and we need more guys who can be physical when needed. Did we overpay?
