I thought I'd post this here. Check out the New York Islanders site today.

Speaking of funny, I just came across this. I've never seen anything like it. Look at the home page for the New York Islanders today.
This is amazing.

Nicely done. The goal differential would be the tie breaker in the case of a 5 way divisional tie at 24 points. I like your counter question about the most points culminating in missing the playoffs. I think I'm going to work on that.

Okay guys. In honor of both the Habs and Flyers squeaking in with a very modest 88 points, I decided to crunch a few numbers to see the lowest mathematical number a team could make the playoffs with. I'm sitting on the answer here, let's see if anyone else could come up with it.
I'll update with the answer at 10pm.

Just to go a little off topic for a moment...
I never really realized it before tonight, but Carolina has really good fans. They seem to be one of the "non hockey market" exceptions. Their fans are really deserving of success and even without the playoffs around the corner, they seem unified in their adoration for their team.
Sadly, I think that people in this city are a little bit spoiled when it comes to the Canadiens. I get just as mad at the team as everyone else so I'm not one to tell anyone how to react. The thing that always brings me back down to earth is remembering that just because they're the Montreal Canadiens, doesn't mean that winning is a divine right. I think expectations are a little bit unrealistic most of the time, and what we all seem to forget is that each year there are 29 other teams that walk away empty handed too.
Don't get me wrong. I want to win the Stanley Cup as much as any other Canadiens fan, but we have to be reasonable. There have been better teams than us that have lost out, and worse teams than us that have won it all.
One day, hopefully sooner rather than later, it will happen. And when that day comes, none of this bickering is going to matter. No Price vs Halak, no Gomez is/was overpaid, no Gainey was a terrible GM, no Martin is/was a bad coach. When that day comes, even if only for a day, or a few months between hockey seasons, maybe we can take an example from the fans in Raleigh.

I have it on RIS too, and it's probably the absolute worst airing of a hockey game I've ever seen. They show fleeting moments of the game, and the 2 announcers are talking well over the on-ice sounds. The camera keeps cutting from the ice to the 2 guys, and cutting from them to show highlights from everything else. It's borderline unwatchable.
