NHL East Preview

East:

Boston:
Thoughts- With almost the same team as last year, but the additions of Erkisson and iginla will make a good team even better. they will be a serious threat in the East.
Placement- 1st in Division

Buffalo
Thoughts- They are rebuilding, will need big season from Vanek and others to even have a shot.
Placement- 7th

Carolina
Thoughts- With Alex Semin here for a full season and if Cam Ward can be as good as he can, plus get production from Jeff Skinner and the Staal brothers ( Eric and Jordan) they can be tough
Placement-6th or 7th in a tough division

Columbus
Thoughts This is my dark horse team, they now have a full season of Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky, if they can both be productive they can be tough, but the East is too deep for them.
