Just read Ryan Lambert's post on the East's improvement. He's probably the worst Puck Daddy writer. Never really backs anything up. Says the Rangers won't play disappointingly due to the coach. Whatever that means. He also seems to have written off Toronto. And this gem:
New Jersey could be truly awful, and I'm not sure how much I trust Washington to do well outside the Southeast, or Alex Ovechkin to replicate anything close to an MVP performance. I suspect the answer is "very little."
THN also picked the Devils to finish 14th. How I would pre-rank it.
