I don't expect the Bruins to be the team to beat, I don't expect them to finish ahead of us either. If Philly get Bryzgalov signed, I'm pretty sure they'll be at the top.
Washington should be there as usual as well.

I don't think there's any question that we're a PO team. We were one this year, without ever going below 8th, while missing two very key Dmen on top of having 3 of our top 5 forwards go through career lows, not to mention not having a top6.

I am really pleased with the current shape up of our team. I think we need to tweak a few things (younger more puck moving D which we should have next year, and adding a bit more offensive depth with another top 6 forward), but otherwise we are very close from being a solid team for multiple years.

Kriss,

I gree that the HABS will likely be a "solid" team for the forseeable future - fact is for the most part, the Habs have been "solid' for most of the past 19 (or so) years (ignore the Houle era).

As a fan I prefer that they get through 4 rounds of playoff hockey (in the same playoff year) and truely compete for the Cup..............something I do not see in their immediate future (hope I'm wrong)!
