Playoff hopes dwindle as trade deadline approaches

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Playoff chances for the Wings are dwindling. I am an eternal optimist, but this post is losing relevance with each loss as the Wings sink deeper into last place.

Best case scenario from the weekend that was

2nd Atlantic: Ottawa - 53 GP 64 PTS

3rd Atlantic: Toronto - 54 GP 61 PTS

2nd Wild Card: Boston - 58 GP 60 PTS

In the Hunt

Philadelphia - 56 GP 59 PTS

NY Islanders - 54 GP 58 PTS

Detroit - 56 GP 58 PTS

Florida - 54 GP 56 PTS

New Jersey - 55 GP 56 PTS

Buffalo - 56 GP 56 PTS

Carolina - 53 GP 55 PTS

Tampa Bay - 56 GP 54 PTS

Real Life

The two losses on the weekend dropped their playoff likelihood from 1.7 percent to 0.5. If you want to check out some playoff percentage information for the Wings here it is. If you are interested in the flip side of the coin you can check out this lottery simulator.
