Are we a playoff team next year?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The short answer is 50/50

next year teams likely make playoff in West:

 

St. Louis Blues

 Winnipeg

Nashville

Colorado

Calgary

San Jose Sharks

Vegas Golden Knights

No 8 spot: Canucks?

Minnesota Dallas Oilers are also eyeing this last playoff spot…

 

I mean Benning has to add more pieces this summer to compete this playoff spot.

 

We need sign another top 6 forward and a top 4 defenseman.

 

Panaran/Lee EP Boeser

Pearson Bo Miller

Leivo Gaudette Virtanen

Plugs….

 

Edler Gardiner

Tanev Hughes

Stecher Hutton

Plugs…

Ask me when the dust finally settles this off-season.

The sharks may miss the playoffs. Their goal tending isnt great and they have a lot of aging injury risk players, especially on the backend.

If we pick up Panarin and a top-4 D in free agency, I believe we sneak into the playoffs. If we don't get Panarin or if we pick up the wrong D in free agency, then no.

We need at least another D to be in consideration as a playoff team.

The Miller trade is bad. But I think it sends a message to the Owners and the players: we are on the verge of being a playoff team. 

Perhaps it will lure some UFA's as well. It's a ballsy move, hopefully it pays off.

Depends.  Let’s see how the rest of the offseason goes before we decide.

we are better off tanking 1 more year assuming we dont get Panarin/ get a top 4dman. Then go all in the year after and go for the cup. TB gets the 2021 draft pick, we get Lord Stanley... Miller can put up 50+ points if with Horvat / Petey, his cap hit is cheap. 

 

If we can add Panarin/ Barrie/ Lee then yes we are a playoff team.

we upgraded our top 6 for sure and now we need an upgrade on defence.

Just because they are wishing it, doesn’t make it true

Adding Miller and a full season of Quinn Hughes is huge. Juolevi could contribute later in the season too if we need him and he’s healthy. As always it will depend on how many injuries we take, if any of our top 5 players aren’t out for an extended period of time I can definitely see us making playoffs.

Need a top six forward and another defenseman or two, but when healthy that’s a pretty decent group.

Too soon to say, but as of now, I have this team at about 93 or 94 points, which is probably a bottom wild card spot.

I think too few fans are forgetting the difference a full season of Hughes will make. We'll get better next year just based on our young players getting older and better--Hughes being the biggest factor. Miller only adds even more to that.
