Weird that there would be predictions now with the looming lock out and teams not yet filling out their rosters cause of it. 8 or 9 teams haven't even reached the cap floor yet and there are another half dozen teams that are always near the cap ceiling that haven't even really made a push towards it. Everything seems to be hinging on the new CBA.
It is ESPN though and no knowledgable hockey person would even entertain the thought of reading anything from them when it comes to the NHL at any point in the season. I mean one of their guys picked Giroux to be a bust and Kadri to be a sleeper last year. Another guy picked Quick as a bust and Gustavsson as a sleeper. So when it comes to hockey (Mmm not so much)
