    All of those teams finished ahead of us other than Buffalo who is getting the number one pick. We suck, and we'll absolutely be the worst team in the NHL if we deal Hoffman and Karlsson (probably in the mix with Vancouver). It's fair.

    I'd be betting on the Blues. Way too low for them.

    Vegas odds before any offseason moves have happened are really dumb

    We will probably still have the worst odds by pre-season though

    Lowest ranked sens team since expansion years seemed like a better topic to discuss than the 25 melnyk threads we have going.

    If Ottawa keeps Karlsson + Hoffman, adds a decent top-4 FA defenceman + Zadina to the lineup.
    I'd be willing to put say $1000 on Ottawa. The lineup is as good, if not better, than the lineup that went to the ECF

    these odds wouldn't be bad if we had our first rounder....

    For sure, I was just curious what other people thought of the early odds.

    For me Toronto and Vegas both seem a bit high. I could see Vancouver, Buffalo and Pheonix being just as bad or worse than us. That's about as hopeful as I can be for next season.

    Pierre Dorion and Guy Boucher would disagree, they still think this is an ECF caliber team, even without Karlsson.

    Projected dead last in the league and we don't have our 1st round pick.

    Would be the 2nd time in the last 6 years that we finish bottom 10 in the league without our own 1st.

    Managerial incompetence on an epic scale.

    Call me crazy but I actually think Vancouver could surprise. They don't have a ton of proven talent but they have some wildcards who could have great seasons.

    Sens aren't that bad, Drop the dead weight of

    Ryan
    Smith
    Burrows
    Ceci


    Replace them with players that actually play with effort, we could be a different team. Goaltending is the biggest question mark next year...and to think 2 years ago Anderson and Condon were one of the best duos in the NHL.

    Its hard to imagine any wildcards will fill the void of the Sedins. Who were you thinking might break out? I hope Boesser has another great season, but Sophomore slump could poke it's ugly head.

    It pains me to say it, but I could see myself putting down a couple of bucks on Toronto.

    Just average goaltending and the Sens will be several place above the bottom though not a playoff threat and that is assuming Hoffman and EK trades which may actually improve the team as it will be more likely all are pulling together which was not the case in the season just past.

    They certainly don't. They are looking to improve the team for the future. It will be better than last season but no-one is thinking playoffs.
