NHL Thoughts 2/15

East:

1.The Capitals are the hottest team right now, once again they have the offense to go far, but, will their defense and Holtby play well in the playoffs?

2.The Blue Jackets have cooled off alot, which I expected, they do not have the offense to go far, I see them being 1 and done in the playoffs.

3.If Lundquivst can play like his old self, I can see the Rangers making noise, the talent is there.

4.The Pens will be tough as well with Crosby and friends, Boston has started to play better since Bruce Cassidy took over as coach, if they play well look out, their defense is tough.

5.Claude Julien gets fired from Boston and hired by Montreal 5 days later, good move for the Habs, they needed a change.

West:

1.This is a different Wild team, their offense is better and they are fun to watch under Bruce Boudreau

2.The Hawks and Sharks will be threats as they have the talent to go far as usual.

3.The Blues losing Brian Elliot hurt them alot, they will be in the playoffs but, I see them as 1 and done.

4.The Kings got the 8th seed and if Quick comes back healthy look out, they will not be an easy out

5.The Oilers are fun to watch, give them 2 or 3 years and I can see them contending for the Cup, they will be in the playoffs and tough but, not at that high level yet, but, very soon they will be.
