My current prediction for the playoffs (in no order for each section):

In:
New York Rangers
Pittsburgh Penguins
Boston Bruins
Ottawa Senators
New Jersey Devils


On the Bubble:
Tampa Bay Lightning
Carolina Hurricanes
Philadelphia Flyers

Montreal Canadiens
Buffalo Sabres

Out:
Winnipeg Jets
Toronto Maple Leafs
Florida Panthers
New York Islanders
Washington Capitals

Bolded teams are those who I think will end up making the playoffs ultimately. More/different teams could end up being on the bubble.

Really not sure about Philly making it though. A lot of their offense last year came from Giroux, Hartnell and Jagr. Jagr is gone and Hartnell is out for a good chunk of the season, I think they are going to struggle a lot to get offense going. My guess is Philly adds a offensive piece to their team before they add a defenseman.

Montreal I hate to say it but I think they may just sneak in. They got a goaltender who can steal games and Markov is looking great. I don't think he can keep it up but Montreal was really lacking someone like him on the back end last year, Subban is good but not nearly the same.
