Metro             
1. Washington*
2. Pittsburgh*
3. Columbus*
4. New York R*
5. Carolina*
6. Philadelphia
7. New York I
8. New Jersey
Atlantic         
1. Tampa Bay*
2. Toronto*
3. Montreal*
4. Ottawa
5. Boston
6. Buffalo
7. Florida
8. Detroit
Central         
1. Nashville*
2. Dallas*
3. Chicago*
4. St. Louis*
5. Minnesota
6. Winnipeg
7. Colorado
Pacific         
1. Edmonton*
2. Calgary*
3. Anaheim*
4. San Jose*
5. Arizona
6. LA
7. Vegas
8. Vancouver

My main takeaway from this exercise is that a lot of teams are bad. Especially in the West. Chicago, Minnesota, San Jose, and St. Louis all seem to have taken a step back this season. I wouldn't be surprised at all if a team like Arizona manages to sneak into the wild card spot there. Especially if Raanta has a good year.

In the East I don't think there's really one legit Stanley Cup contender. Pittsburgh's bottom-6 forwards are a pretty bad group, led by Greg freakin' McKegg at 3C. Tampa's defence after Hedman and Stralman is very suspect, especially if Sergachev can't step into a top-4 role immediately. Washington's still strong but this is easily the worst group they've had in awhile.

I felt the same. There were 4 or 5 teams I wanted to put into the #8 spots, almost none I wanted to put in the #1 spot.

I'm worried.  Had a dream the season started out terrible and Leafs were on a losing streak.  Yes, I dream about the Leafs from time to time.  No predictions from me.
