The Devils are too low. They haven't lost ONE important/semi-important player from last season and they added Holik and Rolston, and they finished at 99 points last year, in the league's top 10 teams.

Even Yahoo sports in their making of top50s for every position had Rivet in the runnerups to the top50 for Dmen... yet no Hamrlik...

I see Detroit repeating but if someone can stop them it will be the Ducks.

In the East it's a bit of a crapshoot between Mtl, Phi, NYR and Pit imo. I think Philly will be a lot stronger than most ppl think.

Los Angeles Kings
How do you know it's going to be a long, trying season? When the local paper can't identify one of your top players. A photo caption in the Los Angeles Times identified a player as Dustin Brown, who led the Kings last season with 32 goals. Unfortunately, the player in the pic was former King Tom Kostopoulos. Is it too early to dub Brown the Rodney Dangerfield of L.A.? No respect, indeed.



LOL!!

I think we are ahead of Dallas at the moment, especially with the lost of Zubov to start the year..

I dont see Pittsburg in that group at all, they lack depth on wings, Gonchar gone for 4-6 months, Whitney out for some times as well.. I think Pittsburg should make the playoffs but by the back door, 7th 8th..

NY has a good team but we are deeper up front and defensively I think its a no contest, Habs have a way better group of defensemen..

Flyers are probably the team that will give us the best challenge for the 1st in the East but if we stay healthy Im not even worried, that Conference title is ours..

That makes sense. Think Canes and Caps fighting down the stretch to make the playoffs last year, then the Caps get gifted third seed because of the division rule.

thx, 1st time laughing out loud on hfboards

some of those rankings are fine (as the wings bein #1 )
but i can't see dallas being second, or, despite having lundquist in the net, the rangers being that high.
anyway, that guy is just giving his opinion

The NHL should totally go into the Soccer/Russian Hockey League system of having a Premiere League and a Challenge League. Maybe then the Leafs could win something

Are they discussing the Habs with or without Glumac?

Buffalo's goal-differential from last year suggests that they were a playoff-caliber team (stronger than say, Boston, who were actually negative) that was unlucky in one-goal games. I'm not sure that they are better than say Pittsburgh, but putting them as a playoff team certainly makes sense to me.

I would like to see the fallen vs any KHL team (Krapy Hockey League) that would be a close one.

Put your homerism aside for one minute...does anybody else think this team is getting way too over-hyped and way too much credit...

I realize we're an up and coming team, but i feel like Habs expectations are a bit high...

It's the same story every year with the Habs. They don't make the play-offs one year and everyone predicts they will sink the next.. They end first in the East one year and everyone predicts they will do it again...

To be honest, I always had faith in the Habs because I was always a big on players like Plekanec and the Kostitsyns whom were flying under the radar if you didn't follow the Habs. I also knew Kovalev just had a bad year.. Did I think they would be first in the East last year? Nope. But I was sure they would make the play-offs..

Do I think the Habs will be first in the East again this year? Maybe. The league is very tight. I do expect them to be in the first 4 though...

Go Habs Go!!!

but then you look at the teams around us in the rankings, and you can see that its not that far fetched at all. You can make a case for the sharks and stars and even the ducks to be ahead of montreal but that still leaves montreal at 5th which is a very respectable spot as well.

I find it hard to believe that tsn doesn't believe that pavel datsyuk's injury shousld be classified as key. He's only their best forward (arguably).... then again, I guess they dont have markov listed for us either

I say we have the opportunity to be top 5. But I do somewhat agree with you that being second in the league seems like a little much...


But this could be from the fact that we've been use to setting expectations low coming into a season.

As long as they play better then they did vs. Minnesota then I feel confident.

I think it really depends on Tanguay. He looks very out of place right now on that second line. I think he'd be dynamic either with Lang or Plekanec.

Gotta give it time. All three of them were coming off injuries and didn't play a significant amount of pre-season games.

However, I don't like the mould of that line, I'd prefer Lats where Higgins is and Higgins down on the third-line.
