With NYR's addition of Nash, I fully expect them to win the presidents trophy

Rangers or Stl. Goaltending will be the deciding factor between the two, and it's a close fight.

Homer voted for St. Louis but I think they'll be up there anyway.

Rangers probably the favorite.

Homer vote Canucks, but StL and NYR have at least a good a chance.

Edmonton and Anaheim with early votes. I'm shocked.

Rangers, Blues and LA have the best shot, IMO. All 3 play a playoff brand of hockey all-year, therefore, all 3 should benefit from a shortened season.

I believe St Louis and New York each almost reached 40 blocked shots in a game...that's insane.

Rangers were second last year and added Nash. My money is certainly on them.

I'm not counting St. Louis out though. Great team and Tarasenko is a big addition.

Edit: I think Chicago and Pittsburgh finish 3rd and 4th

That Kings team, unchanged from last year and under one of the best NHL coaches in recent decades in Sutter for a condensed 48 game season, will finish first in the West. That is my bold prediction.

I don't think they're the best team, but I have a gut feeling that Chicago lights it up in the short season.

Gonna be NYR easy. I like St. Louis but I don't think the goalies would be able to repeat.

Kings. 28-8-3 from the trade deadline to raising the Cup, with 22 of those wins coming against playoff teams. I don't think that's a fluke.

Jonathan Quick played very well in the playoffs, of course, but the scary thing was that the Kings didn't even need him to - they simply dominated all their opponents.

Unlike some other Stanley Cup winning teams, they haven't lost any of their key players.

And they also did very well in Fenwick, so the usual "unsustainable" argument that stats people throw out doesn't work.

They have the offence, now. They have the defence. They have the goaltending.

I think LA has to be the favourite to take the Presidents Trophy.

Damn, last time so many people felt a team would win the PT it was Washington last year. They fired their coach mid-season and almost missed the playoffs altogether.

With such a division-heavy schedule, New York will have their hands full with Pitts, Philly, and Jersey.

I look to Vancouver to take a third President's trophyin a row, even without Kesler for the first few weeks.

Vancouver won't have it real easy either. The NW is no longer the weakest division in the NHL. It's definitely not the strongest, but I think it has overtaken one or two other divisions. Every team in the division improved, some more than others obviously. Wouldn't be surprised to see Vancouver win the Presidents Trophy again, but it certainly isn't going to be a cakewalk.

Oh, and why is Minnesota in the poll twice?

Nucks won last year playing like crap and with Kesler leading that crap charge. Definitely capable of a threepeat.

I don't see the Rangers winning the Presidents trophy in a shortened season where you're playing a high percentage of division games, and your division has three very good teams in it.
