My predictions:

1. Washington Capitals
2. Pittsburgh Penguins (always in the mix - Malkin's going to return to form)
3. Philadelphia Flyers (Zherdev is going to be huge pick up for them)
4. New Jersey Devils (can't bet against them. I see them slipping a bit)
5. Ottawa Senators (improved and talented)
6. Buffalo Sabres (if Miller keeps up his pre-olympic form)
7. Tampa Bay Lightning (don't laugh. Most improved team in the league)
8. New York Rangers (slide 'em down to 12th if Gaborik plays less than 60 games)
9. Montreal Canadiens (Price? Halak? WTF?)
10. Boston Bruins (too many question marks)
11. Atlanta Thrashers
12. Carolina Hurricanes
13. Toronto Maple Leafs
14. New York Islanders (Streit & Okposo = goodbye playoffs already)
15. Florida Panthers

1. Detroit Red Wings (Tentatively. This is a really old team and injuries could really hurt them)
2. Vancouver Canucks (Sedins, Luongo, etc...)
3. Chicago Blackhawks (I can see them falling - even to 5-7)
4. San Jose Sharks (Good regular season team, but maybe this is the year the reg. season isn't great)
5. Phoenix Coyotes (young improving club)
6. Los Angeles Kings (see above)
7. St. Louis Blues
8. Colorado Avalanche
9. Minnesota Wild
10. Calgary Flames (a mess of a franchise)
11. Anaheim Ducks (No Niedermayer = no playoffs this year)
12. Nashville Predators (Yeah, I know, the usually make it. Not this year)
13. Edmonton Oilers (a better group than last year - going to be fun to watch. "D" is problematic)
14. Dallas Stars
15. Columbus Blue Jackets (not sold on their goalie and the rest of the team sucks)
