    Without even bias, I felt they fluked last season. Made no improvement this off-season, I think this season will be a reality check. They are a decent team though.

          I think it will be close. A lot depends on how the Bernier vs. Reimer situation works out in net.

            :lol:

            I think a shortened season helped them a lot. Same with Montreal. Due to our injuries it helped us too. of the 3 I think if healthy the Sens would of had no problem making it.

              The jury's still out on this one but I voted yes. The D still scares me.

                I can't understand why they would go through with signing everybody but Cody Franson. Unless they are trying to trade someone seems kind of dumb to have him out.

                O'Reily should sit out at least one more season and play in the AHL. It never hurts to have a young player play an extra year in the minors but it can really hurt bringing him in 1 year too early.

                  I don't really understand the Cody Franson business either. Either Nonis is a huge idiot or he's on to something, hopefully the ladder is true.

                  As for Morgan Rielly, he''s not eligible to play in the AHL this year. He'd have to go back to junior.

                    The ladder never lies.

                        I don't even see how this a serious question. They will easily make the playoffs. Last year was no fluke; as I tried telling people all along, Burke was in the process of putting together a serious contender. Nonis is no Burke, but he's a pretty good GM in his own right, and he seems to be adding nicely to the core Burke together, with good complementary players like Bolland and Clarkson. As much as I hate the Leafs, I do not look forward to playing them at all this year. That said, once Zibanjead is in the lineup and the new lines find chemistry together, I think we can beat them.

                          If Bernier starts 50+ games and doesn't get hurt along the way and the defense shapes up, easily.

                            The D has been so horrifically bad. They've gotta get it together!

                              Big test with the Hawks, Ducks and Pens coming up. I think the Leafs are going to have a very difficult time if they don't tighten up their own end. That said, somehow they pulled another big win out of their asses last night while being completely dominated by the Wild.
