Mtl takes a step back...TB...who knows?    Conventional wisdom says they'll be better with experience, but is there a rift between Stamkos and Cooper?  Sometimes a team that comes close and loses needs the  boost of adding someone.  Wings adding Shanny is a prime example. They didn't do that...yet.   We're a wildcard...new coach, injured superstar, new defense pairings, lots of young talent coming along up front.   Could be good...could really struggle if Pavel's ankle is an ongoing issue, Hank's cold streak down the stretch is his new reality and Green doesn't click or gets hurt again.


The Rangers...meh  They skate beautifully, but something just isn't there.. Columbus coud be really good, Pittsburgh is a potential mess with Malkin seemingly a very unhappy camper.   The Caps  got Oshie so they're going to be unbeatable in shootouts.   Boston will e terrible....and that will make me so very happy.


Right now, I'd say Tampa takes the east because they seem to have the fewest question marks.

Babcock is 100% correct...Kadri should be an elite player.  He has the skating ability and the hands.  Kadri needs to figure why he isn't an elite player and get to work.

I think he plays like a center too often..shoot the damn puck and quit looking for that extra pass.  Given his defensive limitations, I don't know that he's a top six wing on a championship level team.  I think he's a monster 3rd line wing who sees time on the PP ideally.

Not as good as TJ Oshie...I can tell you that right now.  He's the real Prince,unlike some of the pretenders to tthe throne. He's a murderous uncle away from being Hamlet
