Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Not sure anyone really shares that opinion Alim.

How exactly are the Habs, Devils, Rangers, Lightning and Bruins so easily better. Especially the Habs and Devils.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Devils especially, they have such a suspect defense and a aging goaltender.

They will in tough to make it this year.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Habs have a terrible defence as well that gets more banged up by the game. Not much depth up front either.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Bruins aren't really that good. I'd take the Flyers over them.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

My opinion differs from everyone else's because I'm not someone that follows the trend of the month.

Yes the Flyers are off to a hot start and a lot of people think big things will happen with them this year. Like I said earlier, I think they will cool off down the stretch due to their youth.

Habs - I have them rated higher because they always seem to be in the mix. They have some injuries at the moment, but once those players come back they should be competing for the division.

Devils - Everyone forgot about them already? Just because they had a bad year last year (due to a significant amount of injuries to their top players). This team was/is a powerhouse. Parise and Kovalchuk are top 15 forwards in the league. Brodeur is aging, but he still has enough gas in the tank to give the Devils the boost they need.

Rangers - People won't agree with me here, but they're my darkhorse pick this year. Richards is a top 10 centre in the NHL, Gaborik is a beast. Gaborik finally has a legit #1C for the first time in his career. Tons of roleplayers on the team as well, Callahan, Dubinsky, Boyle, etc. Lundqvist is a beast too.

Lightning - A team that made the ECF last year, and came close to making the finals too. Tampa has one of the best offensive corps in league. Hedman should have a breakout year on D. Goaltending is good enough since Roloson is still very good.

Bruins - Reigning Cup Champs.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.

Like I said, they needed a superhuman performance from Tim Thomas last year.

Lets look at Boston's top 6. Not really sure the line combinations but I'll assume it's something like: Lucic, Krejci, Bergeron, Horton, Recchi, Marchand. And then the Flyers: Giroux, Briere, Jagr, Van Riemsdyk, Voracek, Hartnall. Am I the only one who would quite easily rather have the Flyers.

Montreal and the Devils are not better, simply put. The Devils have absolutely no depth at all. Who's their number 1 centre? Rangers always find a way to lose.

Your evidence for the Habs is precisely true of the Flyers too. They are always in the mix.
