My Hawks are #11, which may be right.  But that team, despite its goaltending, has a lot of talent.  We could challenge for the Western Conference.

It was on Week 2 when I clicked. Use the dropdown to go to Week 1.

Yes, link is busted.

CBJ bringing up the rear, as it should be. Because they're awful, and still haven't cut Mason yet. He shouldn't be anywhere near NHL ice by now.

Four of the bottom six teams are Canadian. It's not a good time to be a hockey fan in Canada. (Especially a Leafs fan).

No, it's not that bad.

It's worse. 5 of the last 7. Edmonton is still in Canada, no?
 
2013-01-17 03:51:39 PM  
The Blue Jackets will win 20 games this season and wont be the worst team in the league. No matter where Edmonton finishes, they get the first pick.

I think the Oilers are ranked way too low.  And I say that as a Flames fan.

/But I'd reluctantly agree with our ranking here

Nobody really knows where Edmonton is. Most Canadians just assume its' mythical like Narnia or something.

Last Week: NR The departures of Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart have created a huge void on the blue line. Can Damien Brunner make the jump from the Swiss league? More to the point, is this the season the Wings finally tumble out of the playoffs?

and they held up pretty solid last year.

i'm mildly convinced it was the epic OT game that did them in. the entire team was exhausted after that, and the capitals recovered better/faster.

Maybe Nash can break thru his own personal ceiling on the Rangers. If not, get ready for a bunch of NYPost pics of that dopey face of his and snark headlines to accompany them.

Winnipeg gets a pass due to the whole conference issue.
Toronto is... well, Toronto.
Montreal is... I don't think they know who they are, really.
Edmonton... I don't know why, but I get a feeling they'll be in contention for a playoff spot entering the last week of April.

I just wish he hadn't ranked the Yotes so high. But I guess we can't sneak up on anyone anymore.

/And I agree with Tippett.

The Flames will suck. Also the sun will rise in the east. That is all you need to know.

Yeah, and what a silly idea to have after reaching the conference finals last year and acquiring one of the best scorers in the league for peanuts.

I'm a Leafs fan. I just don't know if I could honestly have the unbridled optimism to actually claim that we'll win a game this year. That's some dreamy stuff right there.
 
2013-01-17 04:10:24 PM  
Canucks are too high.

The North West is going to be a lot better this year, and Canucks are already without Kesler and Booth.

The real winner this season will be the team that has the least amount of groin pulls. Short seasons are deadly.

Has anyone heard anything about the NHL Gamecenter app on xBox? The website shows it will be available, but it's not on the app marketplace as of yesterday. I want to watch but I refuse to sit at my computer to do so.
 
2013-01-17 04:12:05 PM  
I have a feeling this is the Leafs year. Thats right folks, this is it. I see a playoff run, I see them coming down to the wire the last game of the season, and, falling one point short. Yes, another excellent mid first round pick in the summer. Unless they trade it away, in that case last overall.

How was Semin a cancer? I'll give you the penalty magnet quip, but he never seemed like he was disruptive or negative in the locker room.

Are they giving any discount for the NHL Gamecenter (other than it being a shorter season) to try and win back fans?
