What are the playoff hopes for our six teams? Flames are in. Habs gonna make it? Nucks made the right move? Oil starting to gel? Sens have a run inside them? Leafs are done.

NHL Canadian teams

Man, I'd love it all six made it but that won't happen this year.

Flames - They'll make it in. Solid home play and Jerome Iginla are always a good pair.

Habs - Unknown, their play has been spotty - but the east is a good place to get in with a low seed - does not appear to be as much competition.

Canucks - Remains to be seen, but the addition of Mats Sundin is helping. They will need to pick up their play - especially on the goaltending side to contend.

Oilers - I think they could, but again the bottom 5 seeds in the West are tight and it is hard to say who will pull it out.

Senators - Possibly, but I'd say no.

Leafs - Not this year, but if Toskala continues to learn and grow, and they get a few offensive players - look out. Blake has been crazy good for them.

 

So I will say 3 out of 6 for sure with a possible 4th canadian team making the mix.
