They are higher on my list than Carolina. I do not understand the fascination with the Hurricanes being a top 5 EC team. It does not make any sense to me. Semin was a player nobody wanted for more than 1 year. How is he going to play in Carolina? He's talented, but can be very immature and inconsistent.
They're #5 at best. But NJ isn't finishing that low. Someone has to win the division anyway. I think it will be the Canes. TB, CAR or WAS is going to finish at 3rd, not sure why it's so far fetched to think anyone of those teams will get 1 more point than the rest.
