If I had to pick, I'd say something like:

1. Penguins
2. Bruins
3. Hurricanes
4. Capitals
5. Devils
6. Rangers
7. Sabres
8. Lightning
9. Jets
10. Flyers
11. Canadiens
12. Senators
13. Islanders
14. Leafs
15. Panthers

Just based off some hunches.
I can see this being the way the conference ends up, but maybe throw a few teams in different spots. However I would personally replace the Lightning with the Panthers. I don't see Tampa Bay finishing dead last, but I don't see them making the playoffs. They need more than goaltending, and I see them being one of the worst teams in goals against again.

Maybe I'd replace Flyers with Capitals, although I'm not sure the Flyers will finish 3rd. I can easily see the Capitals falling out this year. They're due for a letdown year, and Oates as a head coach I think will be a failure. However in a shortened season anything is possible.
