Vancouver is the only team in the West who is truly in its prime, so give them another 2-4 years as well

Edmonton and Minny are going to be top 4 teams in the West within the next 2-3 years each

Colorado is on its way up as well

Calgary and SJ are on the downside

Phoneix is still an engima

Columbus is 5 years away form being any real threat

Holland would be a fool if he didnt see the writing on the wall, the West is very competitive and will be even more so over the next couple of years
LA had a nice run in the Playoffs but was the 8 seed and for quite a while it was looking like they had a good chance of missing entirely

Chicago was 2 points from missing the Playoffs the year before last year and have some huge question marks of their own

St. Louis went on a nice run but only made the Playoffs a grand total of twice between the two lockouts(with the other time being back the year the Wings lost in the cup finals) and even last year struggled quite a bit before they got Hitchcock

Nashville just lost Suter

nah you're right they're all total locks in perpetuity
