-I think the Pens will rebound after an early season swoon. Their best mid-season acquisitons might just be Sergei Gonchar and Ryan Whitney.
-Philly will be a contender yet again. Martin Biron is the only question mark on the team, Can he do it again?
-On the back of Martin Brodeur, the Devils squeeze into the postseason, yet again.
-Henrik Lundqvist might be the best goaltender in the league, but I think the Rangers will take a year off from the playoffs before they get back in.
-Will Garth Snow choose John Tavares or Victor Hedman next June?
-From top to bottom, the Habs are primed for a deep run.
-The Sabres will rebound without a true star player. Just a lineup of hard-working hockey players.
-The Bruins biggest question is who will be the more consistent goaltender?
-The wheels are coming off the bus in Ottawa.
-Will Brian Burke, I mean Cliff Fletcher, take the forward or defenseman in the Draft?
-I'm high on Cam Ward rebounding and Erik Staal is due for a 100-point season.
-The Caps could be a real dark horse if Jose Theodore can bring his 'A' game every night. We know OV is good for 60+ goals again.
-Florida is well-rounded and are loaded with quality young talent. They'll fight for that 8th spot.
-Improved yes. The Lightning playoff worthy? Not until they have a better goalie between the pipes.
-Mathieu Schneider will not help the Thrashers in their attempt to keep Ilya Kovalchuk.
