I chose 4-8.
Last year's playoffs looked like:
Chicago, Columbus, L.A. and St.louis are the teams that will stay the same or move up, Dallas, Calgary and Phoenix will be moving down a few spots. I think it really comes down to significant injuries.
I said 4-8. As I see it you have Van/Det/SJ/LA in the mix for the top 4. I think we can compete with anybody else in the west. Hopefully the group we have now is more experienced, and knows what it takes to win after going through to the second round. That being said, we need another good season from Pekka.
I voted yes in 4-8, but am regretting it. I think our division has gotten so much stronger. Personally, I beleive we are the 7th or 8th best team in the conference, but will finish 9th or 10th becuase of strength of schedule.
