As a sens fan on the casually optimistic side they'll either just barely make the playoffs and get eliminated in the first round or they'll miss the playoffs by about 5-8 points and end up in a terrible draft position.

They've lost a lot of top end talent that wasn't suitably replaced. That said some of the younger guys might have big years with the increased role which may or may not help. And if the defense is in any way better than it was last year then that'll also be a big help.

The only certainty is that the Sens will be better than the Leafs.

I didn't even consider Tavares, other 3 were taken. Tavares had less numbers than Giroux and Malkin. He was 5th in the ESPN rankings though.

I love Tavares way more than Giroux personally but I'm trying to win a league here and that's what I thought.

Giroux's turn around last season really got my attention.

He started slow last season too right? And he said the team would make the playoffs and then they fucking raped everyone and his numbers were crazy after that. I love that kind of shit and if he can repeat he'll do better than Tavares. If not he'll do about the same.

It's H2H each cat and 12 man league so it's really deep and it might affect me at first if he doesn't perform but I have faith in him. Same could be aruged against Islanders cause well... Islanders...

While nothing is predictable when it comes to the playoffs, statistically I can see where he's coming from, at least post-lockout.

Well to be completely fair, they had 6 20 goal scorers including 2 30 goal scorers. They had a very good D with Blake, McSorely and Zhitnik.

Goaltending wise I'd give the edge to Potvin.

But ultimately I think the determining factor was Gretzky putting the team on his back for that game.

Exactly. Ovechkin might be the greatest pure goal scorer in the history of the game. Could you imagine if he got to play in the 80s when goaltenders showed up to games drunk?

He has a point though. If you watch the replay it probably should have been a penalty.

The hawks have never relied heavily on a goaltender to win their recent championships.

Look at how good their defense made Niemi look, then compare his stats since moving to San Jose.
Goaltending is Chicago's weakest aspect, and that's why they're such a dominant team.
