    Usually the Hurricanes would top that list. Hoping this year is different. So far, so good.

    Red Wings.

    That's it. I think a lot of the young spunky teams will surprise a playoff team now and then. There's a plethora of young talent in the league right now.

    Canucks were dominated today but pulled off a win by being opportunistic with our young talent. I think the same will go for most others.

    Wings, Sens, Oilers, Coyotes

    Canucks look good early on. I can see them competing for a playoff spot until the very end.

    looks like Vegas is sliding off the rails

    Hopefully at least one of Oilers,Coyotes, or Sabres are still in it.

    Not sure why people are listing the Islanders.

    We have one of the best defenses and PKs in the league.

    Lehner is on pace to allow zero goals this season...

    If Luongo doesn't make it back by Oct 23 @ NYR, you can add Florida.

    With the parity nowadays maybe only 2 or 3 teams will be out of it by Christmas. Wings, Habs, Sens.
