For the fun as the season has had several changes here are my early predictions.
NHL Atlantic Division:
rn1: Tampa Bayrn
2: Montrealrn
3: Detroitrn
4: Floridarn
5: Bostonrn
6: Ottawarn
7: Buffalorn
8: Torontorn
I predict a dog fight between Montreal and Tampa, Tampa will emergeduring the season, with Detroit not far behind as the quality is still there despite new coach. Florida edges in 4th thanks to one last great season from Luongo. Last year's cinderella run is run down by a Boston team looking to attempt to crawl back in but the defense cant hold it. Buffalo improves but Lehner needs another year and OReilly is a second line center not first, Eichel firmly plants as that next year. Toronto is easy to predict.rnrn
Metropolitanrn
1: Pittsburghrn
2: Washingtonrn
3: NY Islandersrn
4: NY Rangersrn
5: Columbusrn
6: Carolinarn
7: Philadelphiarn
8 New Jerseyrnrn
Pittsburgh has offense and their defense surprises. Ovi goes for it again, with the Islanders slowly improving. The Rangers drop but the playoffs still in reach. Columbus has a better season, Carolina improves but not nearly enough with the Flyers lagging. New Jersey dog fights with Toronto for Matthews.rnrn
Wild Cards: NY Rangers & Columbus by a point.rnrn

Western:rn
Central:rn
1: St Louisrn
2: Nashvillern
3: Chicagorn
4: Winnipegrn
5: Minnesotarn
6: Dallasrn
7:Coloradornrn
All teams improves but unfortunately only three can make it. The top three are set, Winnipeg takes a leap from early Dubnyk struggles who rebounds.rnrn
Pacificrn
1: Anaheimrn
2: Los Angelesrn
3: Vancouverrn
4: Edmontonrn
5: Calgaryrn
6: San Josern
7: Arizonarnrn
New year and Edmonton barely misses out but the improvemtn makes them the team to watch. Los Angeles has a good year but one of the last. Same goes for Vancouver. Calgary regresses as expected but the team shows that they are a force to reckon with for years to come. San Jose drops further of no fault to Deboer the team needs to be revamped. Arizona fights for Matthews and challenges both NJ and T.O.rnrn
