    Default Which Western Conference Teams MISS The Playoffs?

    Vancouver is pretty much a lock to miss the playoffs - Maybe Chicago as well depending on their goaltending.

    Arizona and Edmonton improved slightly

    St Louis and Dallas have vastly improved.

    The Ducks should miss... maybe even Vegas (wouldn't surprise me... sophomore slump)

    Nashville, Winnipeg and San Jose SHOULD easily make the post season

    Are the Kings a lock?

    Who do you predict will be OUT that made it THIS year?

    I think San Jose are slowly losing their mojo. Kane won't help them enough. They advanced to the 2nd round by being lucky to play against Anaheim. Speaking of which, Anaheim is very unlikely to make the playoffs.

    St. Louis, Dallas and Edmonton should be battling hard to get in. I doubt the Oilers manage to do it in the end, though.

    I'd take a flyer on Vancouver in the playoffs for the right odds

    LA will not make the playoffs. The problem with this team is that they have the attention span of a fish. They will start off hot and then tail off because they stopped listening to the coach that made them successful at the start. This is the team of divas that needs 3 coaches a year, one for a great start, one for a good finish and one for the playoffs. These goofs tune out the coach after 30 games.

    They're a finesse team.

    I think Calgary is a wild card too. I like the Hamilton trade a lot but this team has been a rollercoaster the past few seasons.

    IMO - With how unpredictable the west has been I'd say Nashville and SJ are the only locks.

    I would say Winnipeg is a lock also.

    As for the Kings, I feel a lot depends on which Brown shows up this up coming season. The Brown from the last 3 years (before this past season) or last season Brown. Also, Kovalchuck hasn't played in the NHL for 5 years which the NHL has changed a lot and though he played in the Olympics (which didn't have the NHL there), we still won't know the end result. The flip side having a healthy Carter helps a lot. So I think the Kings will finish as a wild card or 3rd in the Pacific. Dallas and St. Louis have improved whom missed last year so it will be interesting. The Ducks won't be as good so I seriously doubt they finish in the top 3 for the Pacific.

    The Kings have improved on paper but if Brown goes back to his previous self and Kovalchuck doesn't do well in the Kings system, then they could miss the playoffs. I am just hoping Kovy turns out to be what we hope. I not expecting 30-40 goals but at least mid to high 20's and maybe 50-60+ pts for his first year back in the NHL.
