Ok folks, it that time of year again... and I hope you are as excited about this year as I am...
Anyway I've put my predictions together for another regular season, We'll see how I do by next April/May.

 1.Washington - Too much offence to worry
 2.Pittsburgh - Gino and Sid just top Atlantic
 3.Montreal - Top a tight NW Division with Price having a breakout season
 4.New Jersey - Marty, Zack, and Kovy lead the way
 5.Boston - Rask backstops excellent season
 6.Philadelphia - Good season with serious Goaltending issues.
 7.Ottawa - Surprise package in the East
 8.Tampa Bay - Team starts to gel and get some goaltending
 9.Atlanta - Young team just runs out of steam to make post-season
10.Buffalo - Not enough goals Miller can only do so much
11.Carolina - Ward and Stall alone can't carry this team
12.NY Rangers - Too many questions, Gaborik hurt, no offence
13.Toronto - Steady Improvement, a team on the up but still poor
