New Jersey Devils - Extremely young and inexperienced. There is literally zero center depth until Zajac returns. While rumors of Brodeur's decline are greatly exaggerated, is this a defense that can buffer him?

New York Rangers - The ever mediocre Rangers signed another high-end free agent that's supposed to jet them back up to the division championship? How many years have we heard this one only for them to just end up mediocre again?

New York Islanders - They're still using DiPietro as a necessary evil to reach the cap floor for god's sake.


Tell me why the Flyers can't win the division?

I'm not here to declare a championship, but if you think we don't stand a legitimate if not a favorable shot then you're crazy.



The only teams that are definitely better than us are the Caps and Bruins. The rest of the division is wide open.
SSSSHHH! How dare you be optimistic! I predict you will be yelled at shortly.
