So Chicago and San Jose are a couple of your picks to make the playoffs? Why not just add Minnesota and LA to that list as well.

Also Carolina will definitely fall back. NOBODY expected them to compete for a playoff spot. Such a flawed roster. Plus they lost Justin Williams.

In my opinion, the teams most likely out who could make it in are...
Pittsburgh, Tampa, Dallas, Winnipeg, Chicago, San Jose, Philly...


San Jose is not a very good team at all, they're not going to make the playoffs. Their two best D aren't very good defensively, and their goalies are terrible. That's a bad combo, that will see them give up tonnes of goals all year. they have no chance at playoffs.

Chicago, I'd love to see them, but I'm doubtful. the rest all have a shot, and Pittsburgh and Tampa are pretty much locks, despite where they are in the standings.

The teams in who could fall out are...
Carolina, Montreal, Florida, Arizona, Vancouver, Calgary...


Carolina will not fall out. They're a stacked team, and they'll get a divisional seed. Arizona is a no brainer, the other ones are true, but I think Calgary probably makes it.

You've left out Edmonton. They'll be a bottom 5 to 10 team by Christmas.

Winter is indeed coming, yet its still Autumn and there's a Spring after Winter before "the dance".

Teams haven't even played 20 games yet.

This "story"/topic is premature to say the least.

Flawed roster? They're stacked with great young players at C, W, and D. They're too good at every other position to let their goaltending let them down. They'll make the playoffs easily.

pretty sure he was being sarcastic. Ek has some irrational bias against the Canes.

Dancing to last place in the division. Last year was smoke and mirrors. Buzztron says so.

Calgary has played garbage hockey since the season started and are in a playoff position. They will start playing better and easily make the playoffs.

There is no way Chicago as currently constructed makes the playoffs. That includes players and management.

Calgary, Florida, and Philly could go either way.

But they're all more likely to make the playoffs than Vancouver is.

Winter is coming? Mmm, so is the 2020 presidential election. There’s still a looong way to go, Ek. Ask the Blues.

Bingo, I was waiting for you to chime in about his pick of the Hawks getting in and Carolina falling out. Don't think he has watched many games from both of those teams-obviously.

Calgary to fall out. They never go to the playoffs in back to back seasons anyway.

I've mostly given up. It's pretty difficult to argue against something that has no basis in reality anyway.

Hey Ek

I tend to visit your site from my phone most of the time. I enjoy the Rumor Chart,but it drives me up the wall that there is no access to it from the mobile version of your site. Suck a pain to always have to go to the desktop version. Seriously....can't something be done to fix this?
