I think they won't make it in. Of the 16 remaining games, only one is against a sub .500 team (I know, with the bonus points, EVERYBODY is above .500 - thanks Gary!). Of those 16 games, I can't see the team winning 8 or more. I think 6 is more likely. Is that enough to hang on to a spot? That would give the team 87 points. Add a couple more for OT games and you get perhaps 89 or 90 total. I don't think that would cut it. In past years, 90 points leaves you on the outside. Apart from that, the team (after the Brother Line) is so messed up, that its hard to imagine the team even winning games in their current state. And if they miss out, it won't bother me one bit; just leaves more time for folks to get out a watch a team that really cares, down at the Coliseum.
