Why aren't they going to make the playoffs? How do you figure there are 8 teams that are 100% better than the Flyers?

-NJ has lost Parise and several key players are getting even older.
-NYR has lost Fedotenko and Prust, and have generally gotten a little weaker this offseason.
-Boston just lost their all-star goalie and the guy replacing him is still an unknown quantity
-The Caps haven't done anything to replace Semin or really improve, if OV's decline continues they are in trouble. They still lack centers.
-TB has no goalie, their D corps is still lacking.

Which 8 teams are 100% better than the Flyers, and why? We've lost a bit with Carle, but have assembled an interesting platoon on defense. Team D overall has improved because we picked up Fedotenko and a couple defensive dmen. Our offense has lost Jagr, but we've picked up pieces that help mitigate that loss; on top of that, our younger guys haven't hit their ceiling yet but will continue moving towards it.

So, pray tell...what 8 teams do you expect are better than Philly at this point in time? Please give me a list of the teams who will be making the playoffs instead of the Flyers. This ought to be interesting.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
