11. Ek will have Malkin trade rumours beginning in February instead of June like he usually does.
Agree on Ovi scoring 40. I think Matthews hits 40 too. Jarmo likely believes he has a "win now" team while Torts is still there so I'll agree that PLD won't be traded this season.
I don't like the Pens D but they're still loaded up front. I have them missing the playoffs but a rested Crosby could carry that team on his back.
I can't count the Bruins out. They'll make the playoffs. But I don't see them making the final 4.
Surprise team making the playoffs? Kings ended last season on quite a roll. I don't think they make it. But it wouldn't surprise me if they did.
With such a condensed schedule you'd better have 2 good goalies if you're going to bank enough points to get in the playoffs. Teams are pretty much playing every other night. That's why I liked the Habs adding Jake Allen. Keep Carey Price fresh for the playoffs.
