As for 'best case' scenarios, didn't they pick us for 1st a few years back? Since then they've picked us 8th and that's pretty much where we've landed for the most part a couple of times just making the cut on the last day of the year.
And 8th is not the worst case scenario for us, 11th is. We might not even make the playoffs this year man. All the clubs ranked ahead of us could easily finish ahead and NJ and Carolina could pass us too. They could've easily ranked us 9th and put NJ in our spot.
I think we'll finish higher than 8th too but I can certainly understand why some folks would put us there. Two years ago our team was terrible. Last season it was better but we still didn't put too many goals in the net. You seem to think that we can ONLY improve... that's not the case. Price could have an off year and if that happens we're toast.
THN is just calling it as they see it.
Some are, some aren't. The Flyers certainly don't seem 4th place worthy. And the Bruins finishing 3rd with deficient special units + SC hangover in a stronger division is far from objectivity... Buffalo has better odds than Boston... and so do we. They call penalties, during the regular season.
