This.

Ottawa is a deeper team. Their top 4 is solid. Their top 6 is good and have a lot of good young forwards coming (Stone, Zibanejad, Silfverberg). Craig Anderson is better than people think. He's not as big of a drop from Ward either. Alfredsson is coming back. I think this is the spot they belong in anyway, but at this point in the vote, they are better than the Canes.

Cresto 08-07-2012 12:50 AM

it's 60/40 split for me.... 60 for OTT being behind CAR. Anderson has stunk in his second year on almost every team he's played on. Great 1st then phooey second.

Net Front Presence 08-07-2012 01:24 AM

Ottawa. Carolina is definitely next.

Beacon 08-07-2012 01:58 AM

The Debils will not make the playoffs if they lose Sykora in addition to Parise and Ponikarovsky. The 3 of them combined for 66 goals. Their replacements won't score over 40-45 max. This will mean that the Devils will likely be the lowest scoring team in the East.

Cynical TyranT 08-07-2012 02:53 AM

Sens here

SouthJerseyRanger 08-07-2012 08:23 AM

I have the Sens below the Sabres and Devils as well, so I've got to go with them.

we want cup 08-07-2012 08:33 AM

Carolina. Their defense remains pretty atrocious.

h0ckeyman 08-07-2012 08:52 AM

Washington doesn't have a keeper and just lost Semin. I'll take them.

exactly my thoughts..

GodlyRangers 08-07-2012 10:37 AM

Picked Philly. What have they done this offseason besides lose Jagr trade JVR for Schenn?

It probably just depends on Bryz.

GregSirico 08-07-2012 11:09 AM

Washington ... they should have been #8

silverfish 08-07-2012 11:17 AM

Ottawa here, Caps next. Canes win the Southeast.

DutchShamrock 08-07-2012 11:21 AM

Caps

Zajac missed almost the entire season with his injury so thats 20 goals right there. We will have our 4th line back from the playoffs which is better than Janssen Boulton Mills Sestito putting up zero goals the entire year so thats at least another 10-15 goals. I can see Sykora being signed again so thats 15 goals and Poni only scored 7 with us. So it is not as bad as you think, and young guys like Josefson Henrique and even Larsson will only get better. Heck a full season of Zidlicky will improve our offense, Devils needed a defenseman like that.

I love that everyone underestimates the Devils, good things always happen.

The reason I picked them... Holtby had a flashy play-off run, but I don't think he is a goalie who takes his team to the play-offs. 7th might even be too high for WSH

Calad 08-07-2012 12:56 PM

Philly just lost ANOTHER dman (Mezsaros out with torn achillies at least half the year), I'm gonna go with them being somewhere down here.

BlueshirtBlitz 08-07-2012 01:02 PM

Philly was one of the best teams in the conference last year WITH a swiss cheese defense AND horrendous goalie play.

I really can't see Bryz being worse. No way does Philly finish this low.

Going with Washington.

No way.

Even last year with terrible goalie play/defense, they were still a top 5 team.


Im voting the Canes.

I can't see their D playing worse, I see them making an improvement there and with their offensive additions they should slide into the playoffs.

Gardner McKay 08-07-2012 01:21 PM

Philly. Bad defense. Worse goaltending and they won't get the same production on offense this year.

kovazub94 08-07-2012 01:51 PM

Washington - 3rd coach in two years (who has to start from the scratch), questionable situation in goal, on D and depth up front.

MacTruck 08-07-2012 01:51 PM

Washington.

RangerBoy 08-07-2012 03:18 PM

THN has the Islanders last in their yearbook. Columbus is last in the west and 30th overall. Its going to be a long year for Duby and Arty.

Quote:

Why: Eventually this team is going to take a step forward and it's probably going to come out of nowhere to surprise everyone. That's the general feeling around this team and though a few THN staffers feel the Isles are on the cusp of moving on up, it always comes back to the fact they're stuck in the difficult Atlantic Division. The Islanders will be hard-pressed to move out of the No. 5 spot in that grouping, which immediately puts them at a disadvantage. Goaltending is still a concern with or, more likely, without Rick DiPietro, though John Tavares is on track to superstardom.
