With the pre-season well udner way its time to get going on this years thread and start discussing the rapidly upcoming season!
My (new) team the Wild are set to come off a storybook year for a third year team.
Two major problems they have right now is Gaborik and Dupuis their two leading scorers last year are both holding out. Not a good way to start the season
I look for them to do about the same as last year, make the playoffs and have a chance to win a series or two and that is about it. I think Detroit and NJ will both be strong yet again. I also am really intrigued to see how the Avalanche do without Roy, signing Sellane and Kariya is so tough, their Offense is unbeatable and might have to be to overcome the loss of the greatest goalie ever...Sakic-Sellane-Kariya on a line is almost unfair
And then to have Forsberg-Tanguay-Hedjuk after that is criminal!
