Even if they win everyone of their remaining games they'll finish with the same number of points that the 9th place team finished with last season. Last season, 8th place had a worse winning % then the the 8th place team currently does. If the 8th place team continues to win at their current rate, the IceCaps can win every remaining game and still finish 9th with less points then 8th. The odds of them winning every single one of their remaining games are slim and the odds of a team (or teams) deviating that much from their winning streak -- established over the previous 70 games -- is even slimmer. It would be quite a turn of fortune to see them not only win every remaining game but also see the majority of teams in the 7th, 8th and 9th spots falter enough to open the door.
