    Florida is just awful these days. 2-6-0 since their bye week and with the Habs, Sens, Sabres and Wings out of the playoff picture, they are the only threat to steal the 3rd place in the Atlantic from Toronto. :laugh:

    No one else is good enough in the division and Florida can’t do shit when it matters, Bobrovsky stinks.
    Toronto will make the playoffs in a walk even if they don’t have a good record

    Atlantic sucks

    Didn't the Avalanche lose 65 games like 3 years ago? Mocking a 2-6 stretch? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    Short of injuries to their most important players (Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Rielly, and Andersen), Toronto is going to get in. They have way too much offensive firepower.

    Florida is more of a threat for a WC spot (four team race for 2 spots- CBJ, PHI, FLA, CAR) than Toronto's 3rd spot in the Atlantic. IMO.

    Due to that sweet sweet revenue sharing it might actually be financially beneficial for Florida to give up the ghost and let the Leafs make it.

    And funny enough, 4/5 of those names you listed have been injured for stretches this season, yet they are still scratching and clawing.

    We haven't seen a healthy Leaf team yet this season and now all four of Rielly, Johnsson, Ceci and Mikheyev are out long-term. Going to be a tight race.

    I think WC2 will have more points than the Leafs at the end of the season but the Leafs will get in because, well, Florida.

    The Western wildcard teams are going to have like 90 points. I don't want to hear a peep about an Eastern team making the playoffs because of a weak division.

    Will the Florida Panthers continue to do what they always do and underachieve and miss the playoffs? Most likely.

    Maybe Quennville rights the ship though.

    Another team should have the opportunity to lose to Boston in the 1st round

    Toronto should still get in because their players still have more playoff experience than the Panthers.

    Matthews (knock on wood) is the only player on that list that hasnt missed any games, the rest have missed an extended period of time.

    You do realize the Leafs are 1 point back of Vancouver for the lead in the Pacific?

    Says the man who’s team leads their division with one more point than the Leafs. I think we’re just seeing more parity in general these days.

    How do the Avs being a laughable embarrassment a few years ago preclude someone from pointing out another club having a rough stretch of games?

    Also, what on earth does your second sentence mean? If @Balthazar doesn't remember and acknowledge in every single post what a joke the Avs were a few years ago he is going to go on a losing streak...? He is going to cause the Avs to go on a losing streak...? What?

    As someone who lives in SoCal I can attest to the fact that the Kings,Sharks, and Ducks aren’t exactly world beaters this season.

    Don't let Toronto take all the Kings players. You too can have your very own former Kings player!

    So it's Toronto's fault that other teams in their division are horrible.

    I think the Pacific holds down 5/8 playoff spots in the west. Outside of STL the central is pretty packed together.

    Seems so as Panthers are still almost one man team.
    Ok. One line team but basicly team is Barkov.

    Bobrovsly failed team miserable.
