I don't get why people get worked up over predictions. Their predictions are no more valid than anyone else. We are talking an 82 game schedule where about a million things can happen between now and the playoffs. All they are making wild guess with most teams and playing hunches.

To me, the Eastern Conference is wide open. I think Pittsburgh and Washington are the only locks and thats because you have the 3 best players in the world on those rosters. Everyone else has HUGE question marks and well, NYI and Atlanta just seem to the only real flops.

I don't think its unrealistic to finish top four or completely miss the playoffs (9-12 place). If you look at last years teams who made the playoffs I don't think any got much weaker and teams like Florida, T-bay and Toronto have improved while Ottawa looks much more cohesive under Clouston.
