Yotes are a strong team.
Blues have battled injuries.
Kings manage to just finish outside the playoffs.
Ducks have won a Stanley Cup and have been to the playoffs.
Panthers are the Blue Jackets of the East.
Maple Leafs meh.
Stars have been out of the playoffs but they have had ownership issue and have at least finished above 5th once since then
I'm a huge fan of the Islanders, they have a great up and coming team. There ownership has made some mistakes in the past but I see them in a better position than the Wild moving forward. As of right now they are easily the more exciting team to watch. Tavares is a superstar he coming out this year and will only continue to improve in the coming years.
Don't forget about Matt Moulson whos in his third year and is easily going to reach the 30 goal mark for the 3rd time and is almost at a PPG pace. PA Parenteau is a good playmaker and can score, almost a PPG pace. Then there is Mark Streit a great D thats having a decent year after being injured all of last year.
And don't forget about some of their prospects like Niederreiter, Kabanov, Strome, Anders Lee, Okposo, Grabner.
