I'm going to vote Pens until they place.

Why are defensemen included in the listing of names? They are not apart of the 'forward group'.

Lol thats true, I guess I meant "offensive corp" so like, most prominent members of the offense?

How can you talk an offence for Detroit or SJ and not mention Lidstrom and Boyle..Thats what I'm getting at.

The Big Swede 12-12-2008 12:39 AM

San Joses got alot of depth.

Most of thei guys can play a great 2-way game while scoring a high amount of goals.

Ill take the Sharks by a hair over the Wings

Spectaculard 12-12-2008 12:42 AM

I'd switch Lats for D'agostini.

Claude28Giroux 12-12-2008 12:55 AM

Wings ftw

RabbinsDuck 12-12-2008 09:44 AM

Red Wings have a much better power play and the same amount of goals 5 on 5 as San Jose, with one less game... and things have not been "clicking" yet.

Potential-wise, especially, no one is even close to the Wings in depth.

tony d 12-12-2008 09:59 AM

Detroit

Jimmi McJenkins 12-12-2008 10:01 AM

Seriously how is Vancouver even in this conversation.


Detroit, just barely over the Sharks, barely.

Canucks are 8th in goals scored per game, one of 8 teams averaging over 3 goals a game this season. If you want to complain about teams involved in this discussion bring up Ottawa and the Rangers they are 28th and 29th in goals scored per game this season respectively.

I went with San Jose.

Agreed, beyond the top 3, Ottawa is horrible offensively.

TimeZone 12-12-2008 11:06 AM

Pitts

Bruinsfan_37 12-12-2008 11:54 AM

San Jose and Detroit a close 2nd

Celestial Black 12-12-2008 12:28 PM

San Jose or Detroit.

Hensta 12-12-2008 12:31 PM

Habs?
Canucks have a better goals per game average than the Habs. I don't think the Canucks are better offensively than the Habs when the Canadiens are healthy but I wouldn't say the Habs are as good as the Sharks offensively.

HockeyThoughts 12-12-2008 01:44 PM

This is pretty close, I'll end it tonight and start the #2 at that time too.

Riffo* 12-12-2008 02:14 PM

Pittsburgh, Malkin and Crosby alone make the difference.

The Ottawa group is very similar to the one that led the league in scoring last year. I know it's always tempting to go with what they have done lately, as is typical with HFboards, but they are still a very potent forward group, regardless of their current struggles.

They have 3 top 10 offensive fowards, a defenceman in the top 5 scoring and 2 fowards when they arent stuck in a superslump with the ability to put up some good numbers.

LOL at the choices. The Rangers ?!? Vancouver ?!? Ottawa ?!? I almost spit out my drink.
