You voted. The results are in.

NHL: Washington Capitals at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The votes were cast.

On Friday, the tallies were counted.

All across SB Nation, the first NHL Fan Pulse vote was conducted. Among the 15 non-playoff squads in 2018-19, which clubs were likely to make the playoffs in 2019-20?

If you’re an Oilers fan, the results are encouraging.


Among the 2018-19 non-playoff clubs, 42% of poll voters believe that the Oilers will make the playoffs in 2019-20. Just over 30% of the voters think that the Sabres will find a way in. Just under 25% of respondents thought that the Flyers could find a way in. A little more than 20% of the voters think that the Panthers could make it work, while almost exactly one in five voters think that the Canadiens can change their fortune in 2019-20.
