So all rosters are posted and the judging has begun. Good luck to all.

Here is my completely baseless, unimportant top 5 (not in order):

Tampa Bay, Anaheim, St. Louis, Toronto and Nashville.

Nashville lacks scoring, but their defensive capabilities put them up there for me.
The other 4 teams I see good balance and no major holes compared to other teams.
Toronto is an old team, and in the real NHL could finish anywhere from champions to missing the playoffs, based on injuries and player regression. I still like the build and grit of that team though.
Tampa Bay has a solid offensive group and a good defence as well. While I'm not sold on Bobrovsky for a full 82 games + playoffs, I think hes good enough.

I find whenever you make a top 5 or 10 or whatever to always leave your team out. Too much bias involved.

I had a hard time finding another team I would actually put ahead of mine, so I put my own in. Probabably a bit biased, but these rankings are meaningless anyways

Seems like we may be trying to influence judges here a little

So be it, my unbiased, not in order, top 5.

Atlanta, Hartford, Toronto, Tampa and St. Louis.

Weird. I never thought I was top 3, but I think I'm top 10.

some of the write ups were funny (and biased). Guess some had to hype their teams up.

Given there are 30 teams, hard to make a top-5 but I'd say these were my favourite (save mine)

No order:

Toronto, Columbus, LA, Tampa Bay, Detroit.

HM: Ottawa, Anaheim, Edmonton, New Jersey

I don't know, this thing could go any way haha.


Edit: Nashville is solid too. Kinda like my team (IMO anyway) - solid defensively, work extremely hard for goals, great goaltending.

My top 5 in no particular order: Colorado, Columbus, New Jersey, Hartford, Calgary

Honourable mentioned: Toronto, Tamba Bay, San Jose

Was a fan of Chicago to begin with, but too many trades killed that team in my opinion.

Surprised me as well. One of the top if not the best forward group in the draft. A top pairing that is top 3 in the draft. Defense is a bit thin beyond top pairing, but not a major weakness imo. Varlamov hasnt been able to grab a hold of a starting role yet, but I think that team will out-score its problems.

Gotta say, I think people are putting a little too much emphasis on defence wins championships. A great combination does, and Calgary's team is in the mold of a Chicago Blackhawks style.
