    2013 NHL Eastern Conference predictions

    We do this every year on these boards and I've always enjoyed it (even though my predictions are generally terrible). Regardless, here's my annual crack at guessing the outcome of the Eastern Conference (not gonna try the west)

    Eastern Conference

    1) Pittsburgh Penguins
    2) NY Rangers
    3) Philadelphia Flyers
    4) Boston Bruins
    5) Ottawa Senators
    6) Washington Capitals
    7) 
    Tampa Bay Lightning
    8) 
    Carolina Hurricanes
    ---------------------------------
    9) 
    Winnipeg Jets
    10) Buffalo Sabres
    11) Florida Panthers
    12) New Jersey Devils
    13) Toronto Maple Laughs
    14) NY Islanders
    15) Montreal Canadiens

    1st Round Winners
    Penguins
    Bruins
    Rangers
    Capitals

    2nd Round Winners
    Penguins
    Bruins

    Eastern Conference Champsions:
    Penguins

    I just don't see how anyone beats Crosby/Malkin/Neal... last season was a fluke IMO, they'll be buttoned up on defense.

    According to this you have Boston winning the division which would put them in no worse than third.  If boston was in third they would play Was first round according to your seedings and you have them both advancing past the first round.

    It wasn't the d at all. Andre Raciot took over Fleury's body is what happened! He looked like  someone who pulled the short straw to play net & never played the position in his entire life! I never seen such pee poor goaltending. And Brizzy was only a shade better.

    Ols, Pitt, Rags & Philly are in the same division, unless they've changed the seeding with the shortened season.

    I think it's safe to say that the Bruins, Rangers, Penguins, Flyers, and Capitals will be top playoff contenders, but other than that it's kind of a crap shoot.
