NHL Playoff Predictions: Western Conference Simulations, Post-Deadline Edition
Rich Lam/Getty Images

 A lot has changed since I first predicted Western Conference playoff matchups back in January.

The Western Conference is extremely competitive, and it's hard to tell from day to day who will make the playoffs and in what position. In fact, just one point separates the 11th seed (the Minnesota Wild) from the eighth seed (the Dallas Stars). Only the Colorado Avalanche and the Edmonton Oilers are truly out of the playoff race.

With a little less than a week removed from the NHL Trade Deadline, let's see where the Western Conference stands if the playoffs were starting today.

*All statistics used in this piece are as of the end of games on Friday, March 4 (statistics from today's games were not factored in).
