The Southleast Division

This snapshot is from Zorak's NHL standings. Based on points per game, the five Southeast division teams sit at 9th, 11th, 12th, 14th and 15th place in the East. The Hurricanes were actually sitting in 10th prior to their win over Tampa on Sunday, and for a brief moment the SE division held five of the bottom six places in the conference. All five are solidly sub-.500 in terms of GF/GA too. We are now halfway through the NHL season. With the number of divisional games played in the New NHL, how is this even possible?

Here's the punchline: One of these clubs will start the playoffs at home.
