no matter what, its going to be tough to make the playoffs. The parity in this league will make it tough whether you have an 7 or 8 team division
Agreed. Boston is arguably the most complete team in the NHL. Buffalo is very much improved. Toronto seems to want to be taken seriously. Florida, under Dale Tallon, is on a serious climb. Give Tampa a goalie who's not afraid to stop the pucks and you're dealing with a darn good team. The Habs could very well be on the outside looking in.
