Check out my post at The Checking Line with predictions for the Atlantic Division for the 2010-2011 season. I'm sure many of you will either see where I'm coming from or completely disagree - and I want to hear it on The Checking Line! Register and leave your comments at the end of my blog!

Wow Rob usually you're very level headed but you come off really biased on here. You think Gabby is going to get hurt but then think DP is going to remain healthy. Take off the rose colored glasses. Flyers last in the Division? C'mon man.

I never said that DP was going to remain healthy. There is a huge cloud of uncertainty over him and say that a lot will depend on his ability to last for a full season: meaning if he lasts, it should mean good things for the Isles...if he doesn't, well you do the math. And I chose the Flyers in last based on past history with other teams that were in their shoes before. I could be wrong; they're just predictions, but I left all fan points out and wrote as objectively as I could.

Listen obviously you're going to piss people off no matter what but the reasons you have for the Rangers and Flyers not making the playoffs are very odd IMO. To think the Islanders are just going to all of a sudden leap frog those 2 teams after really not making themselves better this season is mind boggling to me.

You're banking on a healthy DP and you really have to hope Tavares and Okposo can improve. You have the Flyers not making the playoffs because of their weak goaltending and you don't have the Rangers making the playoffs because you don't think they have enough offense. The Islanders have both???

The Islanders are on the upswing with Bailey, Okposo, Tavares, Shremp, and Moulson. Very true but have you looked at the Rangers young studs? Del Zotto, Staal, Girardi, Dubi, Cally, Anisimov, MZA, and possibly 3 more in Grachev, Stepan, and Mcdonagh. BTW REDDEN is gone to Hartford which makes them better.

Here is where we agree 100%. "Brodeur is starting to run out of gas". As I said in one of your earlier blogs. Until the teams are set. Predictions aint worth the page they are written on.
