    It'll be close as to whether or not the Sens make it, I'll fully admit to that.

    1. Rangers (easy)
    2. Boston (will rebound well after thomas is gone)
    3. Carolina (just a sudden boost in morale with the staals)
    4. Pittsburgh (same ol')
    5. Philadelphia (same ol' - Giroux is too good)
    6. Washington (Holtby will get hot late in the season)
    7. Buffalo (They ended well last year)
    8. Toronto (if they get Luongo)/Florida (toronto was doing well till their wheels completely fell off...no reason to think they can't get back to that level for 48 games with Lupul, kessel, gardiner....and maybe Luongo)

    9. Toronto (if they don't get Luongo)/Florida (florida will suffer with loss of garrison but maybe markstrom backstops them at least to contention. Either way they're close but no cigar if toronto gets luongo)
    10. New Jersey (meh no parise, and adam henrique ain't going to replace his production)
    11. Ottawa (injuries to dmen may do us in)
    12. Tampa (stamkos isn't enough...need goalie)
    13. Montreal (they suffered lots of injuires last year...more of the same)
    14. Winnipeg (bleh I don't care....evander kane has a really down year and so does pavelec)
    15. NYI (they need a real goalie...oilers of the east)

    they acquired Lindback from NSH. he could be quite good for them.

    You guys aren't Sens fans. How can you (Michalica) sport a "Yes We Can" avatar while picking them to finish behind mother-diddling Devils???! And Leafs and Lighting???!

    Stamkos scored 60 last year *AND THEY STILL MISSED*!!! You think he gets close to 60 again?

    That'd be something in a 48 game season.

    Tampa is still in trouble. St.Louis and Lecailver are another year older, their D is lacking to say the least, their goaltending is unproven, and Boucher won't be surprising anyone with his old tricks.

    Interesting theory. One would think he'd probably waive to go there. The Lightning would have to send some hefty contracts back to the Canucks though...Lecavalier? Heeheehee.

    Really dislike TB's defence. Don't think they make it personally.

    Sens go undefeated to take Conference and League honours. Don't really care where the other teams land but I hope Fraudeur and the Devils are tied for dead last with the perennially overrated Wings.

    We will see how good Lindback is with playing the majority of games and not just a backup. Might be a home run, might completely bomb out too.

    It'll be tough to stop the amount of shots that are coming with a crap defence like TB has.

    The few predictions in this thread are full of funny.

    We pretty much universally underrated the Isles and Habs and overrated Buffalo.

    I was close in some areas and way off in others. Should have listened to my gut about Montreal.
