Islanders with the 9 game winning streak, proving that last season was not fake news.

What is wrong with Tampa's team? You have them winning the Cup? Care to revise your prediction?

Metropolitan:
1) Washington
2) Islanders
3) Pittsburgh
4) Carolina*
5) Rangers
6) Devils
7) Columbus
8) Philadelphia

First round:
Tampa in 4 over Florida
Montreal in 7 over Toronto (how fun would that series be??)
Washington over Carolina in 6
Pittsburgh in 6 over the Islanders

Semifinals:
Tampa over Montreal in 5
Pittsburgh in 7 over Washington

ECF:
Tampa over Pittsburgh in 6

2018 East playoff team most likely to miss the playoffs in 2019: Columbus.
The Metropolitan is always a tough division, and the non playoff teams in the Atlantic got better. Plus, I really didn't like Torts going off the other day.

2018 team that missed the playoffs most likely to make the playoffs: Florida.
Montreal will be the easy choice, so I'll take the slightly more difficult choice from the same division: The Panthers. Now, I don't like the Bob contract from a long-term perspective, but from a short term, 2 or 3 year perspective it's a good deal. Bob will give the Panthers stability at the position and now I don't think they'll crack the top 3, I think Bob steals enough games to bank enough points to hold off the Bruins and an improved Rangers squad for the final Wildcard spot.

Central:
1) Predators
2) Stars
3) Blues
4) Blackhawks
5) Wild
6) Avs
7) Jets

Pacific:
1) VGK
2) Flames
3) Sharks
4) Coyotes*
5) Canucks*
6) Kings
7) Oilers
8) Ducks

First round:
Preds over the Canucks in 5
VGK over the 'Yotes in 4
Sharks over Flames in 6
Stars over Blues in 7

Semifinals:
Stars over Preds in 6
VGK over Sharks in 6

WCF:
Stars over VGK in 7

Stanley Cup:
Tampa gets their first cup since 2004 and continues Dallas's championship misery as the Lightning beat the Stars in 6 games

2018 team that missed the playoffs most likely to make the playoffs: Arizona
They were in contention pretty much until the final couple of weeks for a playoff spot last year, finishing only 4 points back of the final playoff spot, I think they get that playoff spot this year.

Team that made the playoff most likely to miss the playoffs: Winnipeg.
They got decimated in the off season, and yes they still have Laine and they can say how they are still going to compete and still believe in them as a playoff team, but that's just too much that they have to replace.

Good luck everyone!

Reminder: NBC kicks off its hockey season on Friday at 1 pm EST.

Rangers at Boston.

I do like this relatively new tradition. Good move by league officials!

And the other games start later at 4 p.m., so I sense NBC dictated that for exclusivity and better ratings.

Still, it'll get only one million, or 1.2 million viewers.

My Canadiens are doing very well so far this season though they need some goal tending help.

Are you saying Price isn't worth his 85 mil contract?

Time to bump this thread with a new chapter of the Battle of Alberta between the Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames.

Indeed, it'll be a while before we see something like the Good Friday Massacre of 1984 between the Habs and the Nordiques.
