NHL Pacing 1.29.08
Here is the latest. The very top and the very bottom are about the same as last time, but the middle 27 teams are all mixed up.
Toronto makes an appearance in the bottom three. As disappointing as this might be for fans of the club, I still reckon it's a good thing in the long run.
Out West, last time it was the Northwest that had four teams in playoff position, this time it's the Pacific. Earlier this year, that honor belonged to the Central. All I know is that beyond Detroit and San Jose the battles in the Western Conference are going to be intense.
Only a month ago the Capitals occupied the #28 spot and showed up in the "Bottom Three" grouping. This time, they're seeded 3rd in the East. It just goes to show you that in the Southeast Division you always have hope.
