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
Thoughts- They are rebuilding, will need big season from Vanek and others to even have a shot.
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
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.
Thoughts- They can score goals but with no more Lidstrom their defense is weak
Thoughts- Very young team that is rebuilding
Thoughts Virtually same team as last year
Thoughts They are better than last year, got younger but, lost Kovalchuk, they will be competitive
Thoughts- Still a very young team
Thoughts- with a new coach and a more offensive system they will be a contender
Thoughts- They are decent and young but it they gel can sneak in the playoffs
Thoughts- I got them 4th in their division, but they will be right there with the Devils and Rangers
Thoughts- If Crosby stays healthy and Fleury is good in goal, they will be 1st
Thoughts- If Lindback gets better, they will be tough they got scoring with Stamkos and Malone
Thoughts I have them 2nd because, they got a number 1 goalie in Reimer and can score goals
Thoughts- They have Ovechkin and if they can get Holtby on track they can make the playoffs
