TSN ranks us 22nd. I simultaneously agree and am offended.
Completely neglected the fact that last season Ducks were the only team that beat Blues in regulation when Blues scored 3 or more goals (their record was, I think, 39-1-2). That's gotta count for something, right?
Too high: Wings, Devils, Caps, Habs
Too low: Panthers, Wild
For whatever reason I really like the Flames this year. They're my sleeper team and I think thy can make a good run in the Playoffs. With the schedule so compact teams are going to ride their starters hard. Kipper is a workhorse and could honestly play every game this season while still holding them in every one. He's a freak. Same with J-Bo; the dude just doesn't get tired. If he's playing good hockey they'll be a tough team to play. And then there's Hartley. He'll have the team ready and playing a really high intensity game. I think he'll get the most, and then some, out of all his players.
