Many of the teams that had long runs last year like the Rangers or even Kings again. Maybe a team like Boston who had a long run the year before.
Don't think it will benefit the Devils. Brodeur's goaltending isn't as hot as it is late in the year, during the beginning of the season. Don't think he'll fall apart, but I'm not sure he will be able to steal us games like he did later in the regular season, and a few times in the playoffs. It all comes down to not having a good forward to replace Parise, and not re signing Petr Sykora at the very least. I expect us to be in the playoffs in a low seed, but with a 48 game season who knows? We could be on the bubble like we were at the 48 game mark last year. Only this time maybe just outside of it.
