Shaky without Sid, could slip into 2nd, but just enough in the tank to stay in 1st. Looking vulnerable in the playoffs without Sid.
Consistent from start to finish. Unless circumstances change, they'll end up in 2nd or 1st, depending on Pittsburgh's finish. Playoffs... so much depends on the D (Emelin? Beaulieu? Tinordi?).
Easily the best team in the SE. Beyond that, meh...
Better team than they're playing now; not as good as they were two months ago. Chemistry is tarnished. Offensive depth in trouble. So much depends on Jagr stepping up where Bergeron went down.
Enough offense to keep above the rest of the pack, not enough defense and goaltending to get too far.
6) New York Rangers:
Lundquist can keep them in any game when he's on. Star talent could wake up for the big games. Dark horse playoff team. Watch out.
7) New York Islanders:
All that talent finally floats them into a playoff spot. Not solid enough to go far, unless they matchup well against Montreal.
Adrenaline rush is wearing off and the team is fatigued. They'll squeak into the playoffs, barely.
