1-Ottawa-Very strong top six and pp, good depth well coached. Anderson may come down to earth but Lehner could also step in and do a better job.
2-Montreal - Patches looks ready for a monster year and Markov-Subban kills with the man advantage. Price benefits from new coach.
3-Boston - Struggles on pp continue, Chara shows his age but Lucy and Loui fill the net and Rask covers the gaps in defence.
4-Detroit - Veterans are banged up in new division and the kids aren't ready, but enough class to hang on to a playoff spot.
5-Toronto-they become most-hated team in the league and their last game of season loss at the Bell Center knocks them out of the playoffs to much cheering.
6-Tampa Bay - new coach brings in his Calder Cup stars and they impress but goaltending is still a weakness
7-Buffalo - some improvement but a late season sell off sees them hit bottom
8-Florida - best prospect pool in the league but least motivated players
Hate to break it to you but Ottawa's top 6 dosen't even compare to Boston's, their 2nd line is Turris, MacArthur and Conacher, that's just not very good. Barring a lot of injuries it's unlikely anyone but Boston finishes 1st, this team is on paper arguably their best team in 30 years.
