Maybe it's as little as the team losing the division and falling to 6th (for example), maybe it's someone who made it last year and will be hard-pressed to do it again.

Who is it - and why?

Montreal in the East - the loss of Halak will have a serious effect on this team. They showed this summer that nobody's job is safe there, no matter how much of a hero you are. I already thought they had overachieved last year, and I think they will show that they did this year. I predict them to fall as far as 13th in the East.

The West is harder to choose...ummm...Phoenix or Colorado...?? I dont' think so..but I had to name someone...so I'll go with Colorado I guess...

I guess it's also possible that San Jose loses some fire this year and could maybe fall down the standings a bit...but I'm not convinced.

2 teams in the East. New Jersey and Buffalo. NJ is not winning the division, and they're not going to have home ice in the playoffs, but they'll still be there.
Buffalo will miss playoffs entirely as the support which was barely holding them up will collapse.

I'm tempted to say that Colorado will fall in this category in the West, but they were already a bubble team last season. So I'm just going to say that Chicago is NOT winning their division, but they'll still be there in the playoffs.

Montreal finished 8th. How far do you think they'll fall?

I think the East will be very similar to last year, so that's why they're my "biggest faller". I think they will drop to 12th or 13th.

Colorado as well in the West, I forgot about them.

Phoenix - same as above

I'm tempted to say Buffalo, but I'll go:

EAST - Montreal. People have covered it above. I like Gionta and Cammelleri, even Gomez and Plekanec don't suck all the time, but trading Halak just destroys any insulation they had against Price getting nervous or whatever and crapping his pants everywhere.

WEST - San Jose. Eat it, I hate the teams make-up now. Reminds me of when the Sens were ridiculously top heavy, but had shaky defensive depth. Vlasic, Boyle....uh....Murray, Wallin....Demers. That's not a great D at all, we're about to find out if Niemi is really that good.
