This year, new, legit division with great teams. Canucks are a team with no 3rd line center, 4th liner and lumbering heavy weight Kassian starting the year out with the Sedin sisters, Kesler and Booth can't stay on the same ice. Luon8o's head is in every which way, and I love Torts but he's going to drive that team into the ground.
They are missing the playoffs this year, my bold (though not really) prediction of the year. Book it, as long as Smith and Tippett return to form which I think they will in Phoenix.
I'd like to point out just how spot on I was on the west this year. East screw it I don't really follow them that closely either.
In the West nobody could've predicted Colorado, otherwise i'm 7-8 on the west predictions AND 100% accuracte with my Vancouver comments. How do you like me now?
all things considered the wild did better than i predicted , i said 9th in a different thread. i thought because we were counting on so many 1st or 2nd year players that was too risky. when all looked lost the team pulled together which is very positive going forward. i think our group of young players will only get better! haula , nino, coyle & granlund still have more upside. im still not convinced yeo is the right coach. longterm goaltending is a ? mark. overall this season LOOKING GOOD BILLYRAY , FEELING GOOD LEWIS!
