I think 6 is not really likely. We just shut out Columbus and they've lost 6 straight and we're above them by 6 points with 19 left to play, 2 games left against them. Dallas has lost 6 straight, traded Cole, and Seguin is hurt and they're above us by 2 points and play in a tougher conference.
If we get 6th, it'd be an achievement but I think 6th is a tough order. Columbus would have to turn it around quickly and I think Dallas is going to plummet. We're going to stay what we are most likely.
I was thinking we still had 2 games at hand on Columbus but we only have one. I just don't see anyone in the bottom 8 actually trying to win from this point on (except us of course). I was also unaware of Dallas' losing streak. For a while there we actually had a top 5 pick too. That's a damn shame. Looks like 7-8 is a more realistic draft position.
