Well Looky Here...

Central Division Standings...

Chicago: 8-4-1     17 Points
Colombus: 7-5-1     15 Points
Detroit: 6-4-3     15 Points
Nashville: 6-6-1     13 Points
St. Louis: 5-6-1     11 Points

So the high and mighty Chicago Blackhawks are now only 2 points clear of the lowly Detroit Red Wings after 13 games...hmmm.  Taxi cab drivers everywhere will fear the wrath of Patrick Kane if Detroit overtakes them in the standings.

Hurry up, boys...only 69 games left to make a play-off spot.

    I did some checking and here's the next 5 games for Chicago:

    11-5 at Phoenix
    11-6 at Colorado
    11-9 vs. L.A.
    11-11 vs. Colorado
    11-13 at Toronto

    The only game that's basically a lock for them to win is the game against the Laffs.

    Here's Columbus' next 5:

    11-4 vs. San Jose
    11-5 at Atlanta
    11-7 vs. Carolina
    11-11 vs. Our Wings
    11-13 vs. Anaheim

    The BJs have a much easier schedule than Chicago's with games against the Canes and Ducks.

    Our next 5:

    11-5 vs. San Jose
    11-7 at Toronto
    11-11 at BJs
    11-12 vs. Vancouver
    11-14 vs. Anaheim

    Our schedule isn't too bad either. We get San Jose on the back end of a back-to-back. Toronto is, well, Toronto. If we can stop Rick Nash, the BJs shouldn't be too much of a problem. Vancouver is playing with almost all minor-leaguers now with all their injuries. Anaheim sucks so far this year (boo-frickety-hoo). I say we're up for 7 out of 10 points in the next 5 games. I'd like to say 10 out of 10, but something will likely go awry somewhere in there.

    With any luck, Columbus will lose to San Jose, Atlanta (who is surprisingly playing well), and Us.

    Chicago hopefully loses 3 of the next 5.

    By November 14, the standings could look like this:

    Detroit 9-5-4 22 pts.
    Chicago 10-7-1 21 pts.
    Columbus 9-8-1 19 pts.
    And naturally no one cares about St. Lose and Bubba.

    Now, I know all of this is definitely subject to change, but my point in all of this is that, to quote Kurt Russell in "Tombstone", "We're comin' and Hell's comin' with us!!"

  2. Damn, CIHH...that gets my vote for "comment of the year" so far. I should just copy and paste all of that into a new post, delete your comment, and then pawn it off like I thought of it myself. Outstanding work. And a Tombstone reference? I'm your huckleberry!

    It's your blog, bro. Have at it. I just hope we end up in first place like I half-ass predicted.
