1) Pens: Shaky without Sid, could slip into 2nd, but just enough in the tank to stay in 1st. Looking vulnerable in the playoffs without Sid.

2) Habs: 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?).

3) Washington: Easily the best team in the SE. Beyond that, meh...

4) Boston: 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.

5) Toronto: 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.

8) Ottawa: Adrenaline rush is wearing off and the team is fatigued. They'll squeak into the playoffs, barely.
