Going Dallas here. Fringe playoff team last year, and they added three great offensive pieces while only losing one. Plus, Benn will continue to develop and will put up crazy ridiculous numbers this year. They've basically got Morrow on their third line, that alone is good enough to put them at 7th IMO.
As far as Nashville goes, I'll always root for them, but this isn't about who I like this is about who I think will do well. Basically they lost a top 15 defenseman in the league and their best forward. If you look at their roster it's just not impressive, even with Rinne in the net.
I'd be interested in hearing why specifically you think Nashville will be better Dallas, unless it really is "Pekka Rinne." I think he'd have to have a record breaking season for Nashville to do anything in the West. Meanwhile, Dallas's goaltending situation is solid with Lehtonen/Bachmann, and overall their roster is better top to bottom.
