The Canadians struggled last year, but you got Galchenyuk 3rd overall and are doing well thus far this year.
I don't think the roster was as bad as the record last year, just a lot of things going wrong at once. Injuries + bad years + off ice issues + coaching issues.
Based on the play in the East so far I see us anywhere from 5th to 9th/10th. Once the dust selltes NYI Florida Toronto will be at the bottom. Buffalo is weak at center, Winnipeg too run and gun. Washington is digging a hole, if they don't turn around quick they will be too far back. I think the Habs will beat out Carolina(no depth), Ottawa(no Spezza) and battle Phillie and NJ for 5-7.
