    Keep in mind that I'm not asking which of these teams will be the worst, you have to take the expectations into consideration too, like for example Oilers last year did a lot worse than expected

    The Rangers will blow the tank and pick 6th.

    They'll reach for somebody we've never heard of.

    Winnipeg and Pittsburgh are the only teams there that I think most people say for sure would be really good

    I'm confused why did you select these specific teams?

    If Vegas comes in last place, it's not a choke job though.
    Last year was a miraculous Cinderella story that will not be repeated.

    Out of all the teams I’d say that if hypothetically all of them don’t make round 2 Jets would be. For the others I don’t see much pressure on them to preform come playoff time besides pens I suppose.

    I’m going with Wild. I think the West is going to finish strong and they won’t make playoffs.
    Jets and Pens I can see making past round 2 np

    Its easy for me to single out St Louis here because they have the worst goaltending. If things go wrong for them, I feel like they definitely won't make the playoffs

    Well it's odd then, Jets have similar start as the stanley cup winners yet they aren't there.

    The usual suspects voting for their Canadian rivals.

    Voted Winnipeg

    based on expectations (strong - arguably top 1-2 cup contenders) by a lot of people here - i think they fall the most short.

    I also think Pitt is the exact opposite of chokers. They may not win the cup this year - but my guess is that if they do lose it'll be in yet another epic battle to the finish (like the series vs Washington last year).

    You missed the post 2 before that one where some Nucks fans brought up Leaf fans for their voting? Why even bring up specific fans voting for an option on a poll?

    Hard to vote against St. Louis even if you disregard their trash start.

    It's just what they do.

    Missed, or more likely ignored.

    LMFAO so you say Leaf fans have to make threads about themselves even when they're not in it and then completely disregard the fact that another poster was *****ing about the voting choices that Leaf fans made, as if fans from other teams didn't vote either.

    Keep failing little guy, it's funny you can't see the irony

    The expectation of Vegas among the hockey geniuses was to win the Pacific and exit by Round 2. I still think that happens.

    :laugh: Oh please, I bet that dude didn't even read that one post about voting. He just came in and cried victim. Didn't address the voting poster at all. But go ahead and tell yourself whatever you need to hear bud.

    what?

    I know this victim complex stuff is really popular right now, but you should probably at least use it in a thread where a Leaf fan is the first to bring up the Leafs.
