I think we'll at least see some .500 hockey this season. Looking forward to a new style of hockey that we never got under DeBoer or JM the GM. I do feel we wont be in the bottom 3 of the EAST though.

Watch out for New Jersey being a playoff contender under DeBoer.

IF the goaltending situation can hold up through the season I can see the Panthers fighting for eighth. I'm looking at it like the 08-09 season where Florida will be close but they might not be close enough. (Hopefully our hopes aren't crushed by a lame tie breaker)

11th to 13th, teams are closer than ever before in talent level, there are 3 or 4 elite teams in the east and then you can shake out the rest.

For the panthers goaltending will be a big issue.

Finals San Jose and Washington
