    Seems like a three horse race at the moment, though SJ/CGY have quite a bit of space on VGK.

    Who takes it when it’s all said and done?

    Went with SJ as they're right there with Calgary despite Calgary's top line having a killer first half. Seems like there's more chance of a falloff if that line slows down, which has happened to Calgary in the past. The Sharks are the deeper team. Should be between them though. Would be bery surprised if Vegas took it.

    San Jose has better talent in the forward group and more stable goaltending to take the lead. I could see the Flames maintaining the #1 seed, but I think it's more likely the Sharks do.

    Voted Flames as the Sharks have made it a habit in the last few seasons to not care about the division title and play their way out of contention down the stretch

    Going to be one of those three for the foreseeable future. The rest of the division is a hot mess.

    How exactly do the Sharks have the third best points percentage with the third worst save percentage? If they make a move for a real goalie at the deadline they are my #1 contender in the West

    Coin toss right now but I’d probably say Sharks.

    Sharks winning that last meeting has turned this into a race, where a Flames victory would have made it very likely the Flames here. The games in hand for the Flames are still an advantage as well. If the Flames get through February with the tough road schedule roughly even with the Sharks, I think they have the advantage of a relatively light schedule down the stretch.

    I still don't buy Calgary being THIS good. I know how late in the season we are but I think they come back to earth just a little bit. I think the Sharks run away with it here at the end.

    Sharks and Flames jostle back and forth the rest of the season. Could go either way

    When it comes to the Pacific, it is more like a donkey race then a horse race.
