    Agree? Disagree?

    I'm happy,as a Hawks fan, about this, and i think they've become much better in the off-season, but i just don't think they are quite there yet as far as getting back to the Finals. Their power play has looked as bad this pre-season as it did last year.

    I'm also surprised not many prognosticators are picking the Bruins to repeat.

    Also happy the Jets are in Winnipeg and I expect them to be better than the usual "new" team.

    yeah i didnt even know about the Kesler article until it was mentioned on the game tonight. As much as I hate the nucks, he's a hottie!

    But I predict Caps and Sharks in the SCF

    Not going to happen. Caps always suck at crunch time and Chicago just hasn't done enough to recover all the missing parts from the cup year.

    My prediction

    Vancouver (boo!) vs. Pittsburg (if Crosby plays most of the year).

    One of these days my Ducks will get back to the cup finals, but we are still a few years away from that happening. If we lose Hiller to any amount of time we'll be in the running for the #1 pick in the draft.

    Kings making strides, but just haven't figured it all out like I thought they would. Give them this year and back to the banished bin again.

    Additional mention for Philly to make the finals if Crosby is hurt and can't play.

    Kesler is smokin'.

    And no one seems to be talking about the whole realignment issue.

    These early predictions don't mean much to me. Too many variables.

    The Bruins are not off to a great start. Hope things turn around.

    I think the long flights to play their "division" rivals are going to take a toll on the Jets.

    I say this as a lifelong DC person...

    The Caps will choke. All DC teams choke


    ALL OF THEM

    I'm ready for a killer Kings season. It's gotta happen eventually. Two years in first round playoffs... I'm ready for second round at least? Please? Haha.

    Keep it together this year, Quick! No choking in OT/SOs!

    exactly my thoughts lol. been a kings fan forever (dad works for them) and they deserve some time in the spotlight because they have a strong team they just need to put it all together. Quick will keep it together he has what it takes

    I like the kings too, but last years choke put me off even though Kopi was hurt. I do believe they will make the 2nd this year.

    On another note we should get a RJ Kings game organized! Whose in?
