    East

    East Metro -

    1. Pittsburgh Penguins :team78:
    After the humiliating sweep we got in the finals last year Brando decided to bring in some big guns picking up Bren and Fisher as his management team. He decided to keep most of the team from last year giving him a good amount of cap to fill in the gaps. Spending 5.25 mil for one of the best D cores in the league is a great move. I don't think they fixed the LW problem they had last season and that might hold them back in S27.

    2. New York Rangers :team12:
    After losing a heartbreaking Game 7 to Pittsburgh Last year, Bake kept the main core of his team going into bidding this season. Taking Jack as gm was a great idea to get rid of his big contract and bringing on Kopi brought another great C. Getting Stewkos in bidding was pretty obvious to everyone, him and Kopi have been playing together forever and will have another good season. Almost identical D Core as last year except swapping Ward for Droc. And the Psycho Taco will shut it down in the cage as always. Jack and the boys will easily glide into the playoffs and could potentially even win the division.

    3. New Jersey Devils :team7:
    Draisaitl is back again with a great looking team but now in the east. Picking up Chislett and Haxby as gm and agm automatically gives him two high scoring first line wingers. Losing NYR in rfa to TB was a pretty big blow but he made up for it in bidding picking up OfficialMark and Ryan6 for 6 mil a piece. If Leon and Fizz can lock it down on the blue line i see the devils possibly winning this division.

    4. Philadelphia Flyers :team4:
    Brisan had no luck in Detroit and has moved on to Philly. Bringing with him one of the best managment duos of Odie and Tendy. Besides Hxndry, Gren, Tendy, Brisan and Odie i dont see this team having much depth. If you evenly divide them out it could work to pull out a good amount of wins and make a good playoff run but its too early to tell at this point.

    East Atlantic -

    1. Montreal Canadians :team5:
    Tayz finally decided to step up and take owner. Bringing in Ward and Grap as managment gives them 2 top line Dmen right away and getting Aces in bidding just solidifies them as one of the best d cores in the league. Having Shockz and CT together will give them the 1 2 punch they need for the top line. Forward depth isn't the strongest but the defense and goaltending should be able to keep them in games when they cannot score.

    2. Florida Panthers :team23:
    Vargy has finally left the nest that is Draisaitl and taken over the Florida Panthers. Having Sammy Selke Delisle is already a good thing not to mention John Bri too. 3 out of the 6 defensemen have never played a full season in the NHL and the lack of experience of the bigs might hurt them. Florida will do well if Vargy and Broche can shut it down on Defense and the forwards can score a lot of goals.

    3. Maple Leafs de Toronto :team1:
    The Frenchmen have united in Toronto. Having your Owner and gm be your top D pair puts you in a pretty good spot before bidding even happens. They did well in bidding getting almost every top french player they could afford. Terry and the QC's will do good this season and defiantly give a lot of top lines some headaches.

    4. Tampa Bay Lightning :team21:
    S4k is back after barely missing the playoffs last year, having improved on the roster tremendously he looks to make it in this time around. They have great forward depth having Yoshi at gm, trading for Gally and Sitful then dropping the big bucks on NYR. They don't have anything special on defense outside of Salt and that could be the hit or miss on if they make the playoffs or not. I don't think the goalies are gonna be stealing them many games, this team is gonna have to score a lot of goals if they want a playoff spot.

    West

    West Central -


    1. Winnipeg Jets :team391:
    This offseason wpg completely flipped for defense heavy to offense heavy. Bringing on the 16 year old phenom Gilleh as owner, Flowmaster Joe as gm and GB as agm, gives The Peg the arguably 3 best players at their positions for a managment core. With this, Winnipeg probably has the best line in the league with Bones-GB-Gilleh. They always have a ton of players to resign but KB always finds a way to make it work and make sure he has enough for all the boys. Rip could potentially be on the 3rd line which gives them 3 great fwd lines. The only thing that could slow The Peg down would be the cheap dmen they had to get through bidding, non the less i see them finishing top 2 in the west again.

    Players to watch: @l1l Bones l3l @GB521 @Gilleh

    Forwards: A+
    Defense: B
    Goaltending: B+



    2. St. Louis Blues :team3:
    The blues are gonna be another team that are very forward heavy. Getting Girgs as agm is huge, you can pair him with anyone on LD and expect success out of that line. Dropping 8 mil on PS4 guy PtP is a really risky move but it could pay off in the end. Getting Webby for 1 mil in bidding was a great steal. This team should be able to make the playoffs pretty easily but they're gonna have to make some moves on d if they wanna get out of the first round.

    3. Nashville Predators :team77:
    Tb Toxic and the Predators are back and looking to make it out of the first round this time. Having added better forwards for this season they're defense is my main concern. Nraimondi and skunkybuds are the only two Dmen on this team who have played a season in the NHL. The other 4 dmen have a combined 7 games played in the NHL. These kids could be freaks but only time will tell. Yinner and mikealfi will have to play great behind they're 4 rookie Dmen.

    4. Chicago BlackHawks :team75:
    Somehow freak managed to get 4 out of the top 5 picks and 11 pics overall in the draft. The duo of Fox and Stick will be able to dunk all over most of the teams they face. Taking OpTic, DerPanda, Friks and Dualtz in the draft is huge as all of them are basically ready for the bigs. Depending on how good the Veteran players guide the rookies, the hawks have the potential to be a pretty dangerous team.

    West Pacific -

    1. San Jose Sharks :team15:
    The Stanley Cup Champions return with a lot of new faces. After Duggan randomly quit Poland took over the reigns and got Suter and Panda as his managment. Having them two plus John all on RD makes them arguably the best set of Right Defensemen in the league.
    Trading Bones for Kcut and Hxndry basically became a 1 for 1 trade after the Sharks lost hxndry to Philly in rfa. This team has the 2nd best set of forwards just barely behind Winnipeg. But they do have hands down the best goalie tandem in the league with Jonez and Hoop. The shark tank is looking to roll right into the cup finals again.

    2. Edmonton Oilers :team11:
    Lou and Batman have put together a pretty solid team this season. Their Forwards, Defense and Goaltending are all well rounded and don't have many flaws within them. If Batman, Tom and Maatta play together i think they could be one of the few lines that could give GB's line a run for there money. But overall is this team good enough to finally win Lou his first cup?

    3. Calgary Flames :team29:
    The Flames had a good bidding picking up Chris-Tastik, Kinklater and Canucks for forward. They're D core doesn't look to bad if Bonez, Melrose and Base Camper can carry a couple weaker links. But if this team wants any shot at competing with the big dogs of the west they're gonna have to make some big moves.

    Players to watch: @Chris-Tastik @Schlemko x 17 @Woahmack

    Forwards: C+
    Defense: C

    4. Arizona Coyotes :team28:
    With the old Arizona guys all going there own ways, SpectreGaming decided to take over. The Coyotes have a couple good forwards and a good tender in Winston. That should be enough to carry them to the playoffs. But unless they make some trades its gonna be a quick first round exit.

    These are very accurate. I'd probably move the rangers to the 4 seed in the division tho. It's nothing against them. I'm just comparing it to the others on paper. Good job on these.

    With the exception of Detroit I could honestly see any one of these teams in a top 3 spot in the division for the Atlantic. Nobody stands out as being the greatest, and nobody stands out as being awful in my opinion, except for Detroit (who I honestly don't think will be as awful as everyone thinks).

    Yes, you should do the others as well.
