    Edmonton is sneaky good and the hard part of their schedule is finished, not to mention having the best player in the world doesn’t hurt:

    1) Edmonton
    2) Nashville
    3) Colorado

    Winnipeg and Nashville. Colorado looks dangerous but is fairly unseasonably.

    Nashville, Winnipeg and San Jose.

    I think San jose is gonna get their crap together in the second half of the season and go into the playoffs on a hot streak

    I love the Colorado mentions but even I think that's being optimistic :laugh:

    Nashville
    Winnipeg
    San Jose

    I know the Sharks are kind of a yin-yang team right now, but I think once they get going they'll be near the top of the conference. Hard to bet against a team with EK/Burns.

    Leduc’s finest. I’d say the oilers might even contend for the cup overall

    A potpourri of San Jose, Colorado, Anaheim and Vegas

    Not a chance Calgary gets thrown in there with their goaltending situation.

    I think Colorado is a Top6 Forward rental and Makar away from being contenders. Can't wait to have Barrie/Girard/Makar on the ice at all times.

    The top 3 in the Atlantic.

    Pacific is a joke.

    Strange then that the top 3 teams in the Pacific would displace the top 3 teams in the Metro. Does that make the Metro and even bigger joke?

    You're my new favourite poster.

    No one from the West qualifies.

    They don't stand a chance against The East . The East is too fast, skilled and intelligent. Sorry, but it's true.

    That's it. Don't see anyone else winning. It'll likely be an Eastern Conference Team.
