It turns out 91 points would have been enough to make the playoffs after all.

 

GTFO Barney.

Okay I'll bite...how would 91 have made the playoffs?

 

Atlantic - Boston 117, Tampa 101, Montreal 100

Metro - Pittsburgh 109, Rangers 96, Flyers 94

Wild Card - Detroit 93, Columbus 93

 

Which one of those teams was a 91-point Devils team beating out?  Last I checked 93 > 91  :P

I'm gonna take a crack at this one. Dallas made it with 91. Mike Brown never specifically said 91 would be enough for the Devils to get in, just that 91 would be enough to make the playoffs. Semantics will strike again. An argument will happen. I'll be annoyed.

 

Just a guess though.

No because he specifically said multiple times in this thread that it was extremely unlikely, all but impossible for eight other teams in the East to get 92 or above, even after it was pointed out the cutoff line was above 91 almost every other year since the lockout.  And true to form, all 91 would have gotten us was 9th instead of 10th.  

 

The West point total is irrelevant, who cares about the West? (and if Dallas had needed the game on the last day maybe THEY get to 92 or 93 lol)

That guess was an excellent guess.  That's exactly what I was saying.  I apologize for not being more clear.

You're right.  I did say that and I was wrong.  But the problem is, Washington only had 90 points.  Meaning Columbus didn't need 93 to make the playoffs.  They only needed 91.

Ohhhhh so this whole time you were just trying to let us know what OTHER teams needed to get into the playoffs, not what the Devils needed. Because even in that scenario that you came up with, the Devils would have needed 92.

Ridiculous.  We were arguing about the East teams and standings specifically, you can't use the West to weasel out of this anymore than you can use the AHL or KHL when odds are there wasn't a single post about the West in this thread before today.

 

You're right.  I did say that and I was wrong.  But the problem is, Washington only had 90 points.  Meaning Columbus didn't need 93 to make the playoffs.  They only needed 91.

 

lol now we're arguing what ifs.  The argument specifically was how many points the DEVILS needed to make the playoffs.  Which turned out to be 93.

Probably a stupid question, but how do you get this clips to show up in the post rather than just the link? I used to be able to do it, but something changed a little while back and I haven't been able to get it to work since.
