Obviously he would have to show a bounce back, and Babcock would have to be confident that he could turn him into a defenseman, rather than a 4th forward.

He has the talent, no question.

The Sens rely s heavily on him for offense, because they have to.

The question at this point is the injuries, and what you have to give up to get him and how badly he affects your cap?

Gotta think there’s some incentive for Karlsson to join the Leafs as a UFA.

Cup contender, and the opportunity to embarrass Melnyk and the golden onion.

one first round bow out and 3rd in the division isn't a cup contender, Glucks

no but (frank) a cup contender?

there is about 4 bonafide cup contenders in the league then like 6-8 teams who could get hot at the right time. I'd put the Leafs in that second group with the Bruins.

they have a realistic shot at winning, they're just not favourites.

vegas (somehow?), winterpeg, pittsburgh, tampa, boston

I got Nashville, Pittsburgh, Tampa and Winnipeg as a half step up on the next group of Toronto, Boston, Washington and Vegas.

Nashville is my #1

you've got the anti-homer disease where you underrate your fav team. boston is as legit as anyone. they have the offensive skill, the goaltending, the defense, and the experience to win it all.

3rd in the division, but 6th in the NHL. And they haven’t played much against the Atlantic fodder teams yet.

Imo if you’re that high up, you’re a contender.

Leafs have 5 points on Pittsburgh, and are tied with the Jets.

I wouldn’t put Tampa in the favourite group. They’ve cooled down. Before Matthews got injured, I thought TO and Boston could pass them by season’s end. Still think Boston takes first.

Wouldn’t trade for him. Definitely a UFA play, after he has a bounce-back season.

If he doesn’t bounce back, he doesn’t get an offer.

I will concede that they have an excellent goal differential which is usually a hallmark of cup winners come playoff time.

pens have won the last 2 cups and i feel like the jets style will translate a bit better in the playoffs

toronto might be a 100 point team though and it's pretty hard to say a 100 point team isn't a contender

Bruins have so many young guys that I'm reluctant to think they will all show up in the playoffs the way they have the past few months.

Yea, the drop-off from the top-6 teams to the rest is striking.


Andersen is playing out of his mind this season. With goaltending like that, and the offensive depth... you’ve always got a chance.
