<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ForsbergForVezina</b></div><div>My predictions for all of these players:
Traded in the offseason: Ekholm, one of CBJ goalies, Manson, Kuemper
Traded midseason (21-22)/hit UFA: Jarnkrok, Butcher, Tierney, Jenner, Fabbri, Rakell, Risto
Extended some time in the next year by current team: Jones, Forsberg, other CBJ goalie, Hertl
If I'm the gm of the last group I think it's a mistake to the let the season start without tradinf or signing.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CMcAvoy73</b></div><div>You’re really going to put toronto ahead of boston? I get that the bruins are crippled and trotting out an ECHL D group right now, but they should get healthy. Given recent history, if boston is playing toronto, are you really putting your money on toronto?</div></div>
It's not really a one vs one. Clearly Boston had Toronto's number. I'm just trying to tier teams.
Also Rask and Halak both seem to be showing their age. Bad goaltending has nuked numerous teams.
I also think that both the Leafs and Jets would be at the top (not necessarily number 1) in any division.
The Oilers are always dangerous given McDrai.
Montreal and Calgary are as good as any divisions mushy middle.
I'm not sure why people are knocking on the north.
Sure Ottawa stinks
But jersey and buffalo are as bad
As are the ducks and the red Wings.
The King's, sharks, totes, Nashville, Dallas (missing it's number 1 c and goalie all year otherwise better), Chicago, Philly (given Hart's play), Rangers, Vancouver and Calgary are on a similar tier.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AustonMatthews3443</b></div><div>I'm not sure I would use the word smoked. I don't like their chances much against Tampa, Colorado or Vegas. I could see them pulling off upsets over NYI, Carolina or Washington tho.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CMcAvoy73</b></div><div>I would have them favored against NYI, even money against Washington, and an underdog against Carolina</div></div>
I'd say there are tiers
First tier Tampa and Colorado
Washington, Toronto, Carolina, Islanders, Vegas, Panthers
Jets, penguins, Minni, Oilers*, Boston**
Montreal, St Louis, whoever makes it from the central
*Oilers can outperform given the mcdraisaital
**Boston can outperform if Rask/Halak/Krejci refind their youth for a cup run. With their "perfect" line up top it won't take much to get them going
