The Fight For The Playoffs Start Early

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

Who will emerge? That’s where the intrigue lies. Last year, the Columbus Blue Jackets (currently seventh overall at 10-6-2) made it for the first time and the so-far disappointing St. Louis Blues (6-8-4) put together a second half that catapulted them from last to sixth. Maybe this time, the L.A. Kings (12-7-2) will continue their fine early-season play and be there as a fresh entry. It’s also possible that the Anaheim Ducks, presently occupying the conference basement, won’t find their stride and will stay mired on the outside looking in.

The top five may be easier to spot with only a quarter of the work done, but figuring out seeds six through 15 is going to take the whole schedule.
