Personally I don't think we'll be much worse than last year. JBo is the only player we really don't have a replacement for. I don't think our goaltending can do anything but get better and Giordano should have a better year too.

we havent gotten worse but those other teams got a bit better. if it had been a full season we would be bottom 3 imo. carolina will be a playoff team, nashville will be better, tampa will have an nhl calibre goalie this year, colorado has a great offense and more competent coaching, florida will be better but still really bad.

Calgary, Florida, New Jersey, Dallas, Buffalo are my picks for Bottom 5.

Harrison hit Baertschi hard on the forecheck. Looked like Baertschi might have fallen awkwardly into the boards. After he got up, he chased down Harrison near the benches and I'm not sure what his intention was- probably he was just trying to put his gloves in his face- but he ended up cross-checking him in the neck. Harrison got a penalty shot and scored a nice goal. Harrison's hit was very clean and very impactful.

Not sure if hilarious or double hilarious.

I'm not counting Florida out yet. If Markstrom gets into NHL form, their defense is going to be their only hole.

EDITED: Actually now that I look at it, the only place they suck is up the left side and their defense is actually surprisingly strong. If Barkov has a good year they could actually thrive. So yeah, Panthers are definitely not to be counted out.

It was a ten page word document, I figured it would get lost here too easily.

i agree with your comments about Markstrom. he should be a young star already...
