It's about time Philly got voted in.

Hennig 01-01-2013 06:30 PM

I voted Washington. But you can't go wrong with either WPG, MON, NYR, STL, or CHI.

This is where things get interesting.

Went with Montreal

St. Louis, not even a homer vote.

Definitely getting very interesting, you can really argue for a tonne of different teams here. I'm going to go a bit off the board and take Dallas. Benn is a total stud, and I can see Faksa and Ritchie both becoming solid top 6 players in the NHL.

Chicago should be winning

I too think that Washington, Chicago and Winnipeg have a better trio than the currently winning St.Louis trio

Izzy 01-02-2013 06:06 PM

Blues.

candyman82 01-02-2013 06:08 PM

Dallas

LightningStrikes 01-02-2013 06:13 PM

St. Louis.

StringerBell 01-02-2013 06:54 PM

St Louis
Montreal
Chicago
Winnipeg
Washington

Dolph Ziggler 01-02-2013 08:20 PM

Don't think it's homer to vote St. Louis here, but I wouldn't argue with a vote for Chicago or Philadelphia here either.

Socratic Method Man 01-02-2013 10:54 PM

This was really close for me. But I chose Winnipeg by the slimmest of margins.

Winnipeg
Montreal
Florida
St Louis
Washington

But they are all close, and a bunch others are right beside them too.

IMO the top 5 should of been;

Colorado
Rangers
Oilers
Sabres(replace Ennis with Foligno)
Flyers

Oates2Neely 01-02-2013 11:35 PM

A Seguin Spooner combo will be giving teams fits soon.

Why though? Ennis is FAR more skilled. Foligno might (and looks like he will) be a good, gritty complementary top 6 winger to a skilled guy like Ennis or Hodgson, but Ennis is the kind of player who makes his line go. Stafford was on pace to end 11-12 with about 10 goals until Ennis got healthy and was put back on his line.
