The Oil's win over the Hawks puts the Isles in the 27th slot or the #3 overall pick if the season ended tonight. If the Isles lose in regulation Wednesday and the Devils beat the Sabres in OT or a SO, the Isles will be #30 or in position for the #1 overall. On the other hand, they are currently only 5 points out of a playoff spot. What happens these next few weeks will determine where this team winds up this season.
