Roman Josi has 48 points in 47 games.  Not 32.

Thanks, must have seen 32 on Forsberg's stats.

Just letting you know that I read these game notes :-).

Me too. But I always trust everything that Carlton says. ;D

As you should. The sheep in the media will try and tell you that Timashov is a "healthy scratch" when in reality the team actually has no idea where he is.

I could end up being wrong, but I don't see Columbus maintaining their current pace. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Carolina drop off a little with Hamilton out.

Yeah I'm not banking on Elvis getting another 15 shutouts this year.

My gut feeling is that we'll need at least 20 wins out of the last 33 games to make the playoffs.  Need to start it tonight!

A 20-13 record would only give us 97 points, so we're going to need a few loser points there as well. The East is going to be a very tight playoff race.

Right now 9 of the top-12 teams in the league by points percentage are from the East. Columbus has the 8th best points percentage in the East and they're on pace for 99(.7) points.

Philly is 12th in the league in points percentage (.600) and they aren't in a playoff spot. They have a better record than every team in the Pacific division and 4 of the Pacific teams occupy playoff spots in the West.

I'm still confident that we'll make the playoffs, but it's going to be pretty tight especially considering the competition in the East. This isn't exactly new either. Last season Columbus had the final spot in the East with 98 points. Montreal just missed with 96 points. But in the West 3 teams made the playoffs in the 93-90 point range.


If they can maintain the same points pace for the next 33 games that they have for the 26 under Keefe they'll get 44 points and finish with 101.  It's a big ask considering how hot they were for awhile under young Sheldon

Keefe's record also includes a stretch of games where we had 2009-Vesa Toskala in net though, so there were highs and lows with that 0.673 points percentage.

 On second thought I take it back. I know it's not Feb 27th. :(

But, on the other hand, the leafs have also been riding an unsustainable shooting percentage and have played a pretty easy schedule.

It's tough to say what will happen ...

That SH% is 9.9% over the past month 5v5, and they're 8.7% for the season...the best in the league YTD 5v5 are:

1.  Tampa - 9.8%
2.  Colorado - 9.7%
3.  Washington - 9.7%
4.  Florida - 9.6%
5.  Minnesota - 9.4%

So maybe, maybe, not too unsustainable.  I'd put the Leafs up there with these guys.  Although the past month was a little easier, I still think they should remain up there given the makeup of this team.

Listen everyone the first game after a bye week is always rough.

I'll give you they had a favourable schedule for awhile there, but I'm not sure shooting percentage is an issue. They're at 9.41 under Keefe. Prior to this little blip they were shooting at 9.72 under Keefe. But I'm not sure that's really unsustainable. Last year they shot 9.47 all season. So their numbers there are pretty much where they should be.

Or, or, you could just say that I'm right. 

I'm right like once a year at best, so throw me a bone here.  It's cold outside.

Barton and Sherman? I've never been more insulted in my entire life.

You did, almost creepily, absolutely nail where I lived until I was like 12 though.
