I think the East is going to be wild an unpredictable In the Atlantic, the Habs have gotten worse (Markov/Beaulieu replaced by Streit/Alzner is a huge downgrade; Drouin replacing Radulov is likely a wash offensively but Radulov is a power forward and Drouin is not; neither is Hemsky -- that could very well be a wasted contract; Galchenyuk is not going to suddenly blossom after 5 years in the league and on a brand new contract). Boston may have gotten better if Chara is not playing top-minutes on their back-end and Rask returns to form. Toronto will be better. Ottawa will be better. I laugh at the people who are projecting the Florida teams to do well. Panthers are likely to get worse before getting better. i don't think Stamkos will ever return to his old form (lots of injuries, not getting any younger) and they lost Drouin; they will have to transition their game to more offense from the back-end and that's not something you can do overnight. Still, I expect one of those two to push for a playoff spot. Buffalo will be better, assuming no more injuries. Who's left. Detroit. WTF are they in the Atlantic? Rangers/Islanders/Caps are literally on or very near the ocean, but we get Detroit in the Atlantic? Idiots. Divisions are pretty bad but they make it even worse giving them stupid names!
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
