East:

1) Washington
2) Boston
3) Pittsburgh
4) Devils
5) Buffalo
6) Philly
7) Lightning
8) Montreal
9) Toronto
10) Rangers
11) Hurricanes
12) Jets
13) Islanders
14) Sens
15) Florida

I wont do the West, because I dont know them as well.

But I see in the east, the # 1-6 will def make the playoffs, 7-11 will all fight for a playoff spot, and 12-15 could be a different order, but wont make the playoffs

But as we all know, there will be one upset in there!

I think the Sens sneak into the playoffs on Anderson's back, similar to how Colorado did a couple years ago.

First round exit likely.

edit: Our goaltending makes us better than Toronto.

<---- not sold on Reimer for a full season. Young goalies get found out quick in this league (Varlamov is the most obvious example I can think of - he was a monster his first playoffs, but the season is a grind and once players have a chance to build a book on a goalie the results change) and I don't think Toronto has a good enough team to overcome that.

All anyone needs to know is that we are a bottom 5 team in the east.

Another top 10 pick is coming our way again...

2 things I see in a lot of people's list. NJD and Buffalo. While Boston won the cup last year Buffalo helped their d drastically (theey took the division the year before) and outplayed Boston during the second half of the season last year. THey could be in that 2-3 seed next year.

Why are people so big on New Jersey? The goaltending is iffy, Even with Parise the forwards are lackluster (Kovy is a cancer).... their defense is good but PP isn't productive? Can't see how people rate them over Buffalo, NYR, Montreal, Tampa and Philly.

I think 7 of the playoff spots are going to Washington, Pittsburg, Buffalo, Boston, NYR, Tampa, and Montreal...... with Toronto, Carolina and New Jersey fighting for #8

East

1 - Pittsburgh Penguins (assuming Crosby healthy)
2 - Boston Bruins
3 - Washington Capitals
4 - Philadelphia Flyers
5 - New York Rangers
6 - Buffalo Sabres
7 - Tampa Bay Lightning
8 - Ottawa Senators

---

9 - New Jersey Devils
10 - Montreal Canadiens
11 - Toronto Maple Leafs
12 - New York Islanders
13 - Carolina Hurricanes
14 - Winnipeg Jets
15 - Florida Panthers

I think people are really underselling Ottawa all over the place. With a new coach, Anderson, and hopefully healthy stars Ottawa should be able to surprise people. We're depending on the growing pains of whatever rookies we end up icing and the consistency of the sophomores...We'll see, but this is how I think it could turn out. Though teams 7 - 12 are pretty much interchangeable.

The biggest thing with Ottawa is that its a huge team of unknowns.

What if coaching doesn't pan out well here, what if we have injuries to our main guys like we usually do, can anderson really carry a team again.

Almost everything in Ottawa is new. How can you predict them to be great, when pretty much its a team of new players that have never played together, including coaching staff.

I'm not going to set myself up for a disappointment. Ottawa will be closer to the bottom UNLESS we have a lot of IF's come true. And I mean, A LOT! (Anderson plays well, Spezza uninjured + ppg, Alfie leads team and stays healthy, Michalek plays well, Karlsson and Gonchar have good years, one D prospect has a good year, 2 forward prospects break out). If all that happens, I see Ottawa making the playoffs.

I don't know how Anderson is better than Reimer. He was backup in this league for ages and had one good season, but fell totally apart last year, so I'm not sold on him at all. He's still a huge question mark.

At least Reimer kept his team out of the lottery. Same can't be said about Anderson (with Colorado)

There was a lot wrong with Colorado than just goaltending. I also like how you completely discredit his previous year where he carried the Avs into the playoffs.I have much more faith in Anderson's .913 in 231 games than Reimer's .921 in 37 games.

Before you get ahead of yourself, consider that Elliott did a respectable job in his first season as well.

Did bother checking out his play as a backup? His numbers are stellar; had he not been stuck behind Vokoun he would have been a starter earlier in his career.

In 8 seasons, he has only had a sub .915 sv% 4 times. The first three times were his first three in the league, so if you discount those as learning the trade, he has only had 1 bad season out of his last 5.

Better yet, rather than look at his stats, watch him play.

Anderson is awesome.

Yes, there are a lot of unknowns but everyone on this board is so quick to write off this team. It's sickening the type of cynicism the Ottawa fanbase has. There's a lot of good that can come from this team next year. Yes, things could go badly but I'd rather be excited about a young team with a (hopefully great) new coach and some stars to help push them along. They can, and hopefully will, make the playoffs. The talent is there they just have to put it together.

Don't let Fuhr see this. We will always be a bottom 5 team! Murray sucks! Our prospects will never amount to anything but a borderline top 6er and the rest scrubs! Did I mention Murray sucks!?

Colorado was in playoff position for half the season with Anderson in net. They were 8th when they traded him. Lol...
