Not every team improves and some always overachieve. Here are some I think will fall down the standings next season:


Florida: completely overachieved last season. They have weak goaltending and less than average D.

NJ: loss of Parise and bankruptcy issues will do them in.


San Jose: Weak goaltending and an aging core. They are next for a need to re-build

Nashville: they can't keep losing top end talent and expect to overachive.

Phoenix: Another year, another band-aid roster. If Doan is truly gone, good luck Yotes.

Any other thoughts?
