    I'm not high on the Islanders this year either but seeing the Rangers directly over the Islanders is surprising to me.

    St. Louis is one and done. They were the successful version of the 2018 Golden Knights.

    Edmonton at #2 in 2018 is hilarious.

    I think Minnesota is being under-rated a bit here. I don't anticipate them being more than a wild card team but #27 seems really low.

    2017 -> 2020

    21 -> 24 -> 25 -> 26

    Clearly Buffalo doesn't understand which direction a rebuild is supposed to go in.

    Or they could become the next LA Kings and repeat in the next 2-5 years. The Blues's core is physical, skilled, relatively inexpensive, and in their prime (Tarasenko, O'Reilly, Schenn, Schwartz, Pietrangelo, Parayko, Binnington) plus they have lots of depth at forward and defense.

    That's a possibility as well. The only thing, for me at least, was that I remember the 2012 Kings being labelled a strong darkhorse going into the season. I was much less surprised by the Kings success that season than I was the Blues.

    Lol did you not even look at the other polls? We moved up two spots from the previous year's poll despite missing the playoffs that year.

    Thats because the Blues aren't a big market. The truth is, they are loaded with skilled, 2-way players from top to bottom, and that makes them almost impossible to match lines against.

    The Penguins haven't won in a while, they are long past due to end their Cup drought.
