I am a NJ Devil Fan but because they lost so many players I don't think they will a contender. I predict that the young Chicago Blackhawks will be the team to beat. They have young talent such as Patrick Kane and they have experience with John Madden and Hossa !!! Go Blackhawks !!
Well, I usually don't favorite a team easily, so I kept asking myself that question. Also there is not much choice as to which team you watch where I live, coz you have to watch the game brought to you by the sports channel.
If I had to pick one I'd say it's Anaheim. Weirdo?
Im a Devils fan too and I think they have a chance. They just need some players to step it up this year. I think Washington and Boston will be the teams to beat in the East though. In the West of course Detroit is always good. I think Chicago and Anaheim could make a strong run too. Im pretty excited for this season.
I agree with you that Washington will be a contender and I am actually very excited to see OVIE play. I think he is the next Gretsky "the great one" not Crosby. I disagree that Boston will be in there, I don't think they have the depth.
Detroit is always a challenge and they always seem to be able to win.
