Looks like there'll be more sellers than buyers in my opinion. I think players are going to go for less than usual or be fewer trades. Also it's worth noting that this is a deep draft this year (For real this time) so teams are more likely to hold on to 1st round picks.
All those interconference plays gives a good barometer of how better one conference is to the other......

In the west you have Chicago and Anaheim who have set themselves apart from the rest.

In the East it looks to be Boston and Pittsburgh that does the same.

Montreal will fade in the standings though likely still make the playoffs. Had there been 82 games I would say they would likely go into freefall. They are a young team.

At the end you will likely have 6-7 teams battling for the final 3 playoff spots.
