Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.
Montreal is not a good team. Defence sucks (understatement really) and they don't have much depth up front and have guys that get hurt quite a bit. You never know. Boston is going to have a hard time scoring goals all year. Not saying they'll be ahead of them but Toronto isn't as bad off as people make them out to be. Eastern Conference is not that great. Besides Pittsburgh, Washington and Philadelphia every team in the east has major holes. Roloson has been starting to show his age in Tampa too. If they can keep their record around .500 in November instead of the usual collapse they won't have to claw out of the cellar in January and February again. Skill wise they're good enough, they've just played 2 different seasons the last 2 years.
Maple Leafs - Raptors - Steelers - Blue Jays - Florida State
