While the Bruins will be much better than last season, it's doubtful they will be able to climb out of the basement in the highly competitive Northeast. Boston will give the Maple Leafs a run for their money for the fourth spot in the division, but that's about as high as this team will go. Boston still has too many question marks on offense, defense and in goal to be able to challenge for a playoff spot. After their top six forwards of Savard, Murray, Kessel, Marco Sturm, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Boyes, it's a crap shoot for the Bruins. P.J. Axelsson has offensive skills, but how much can he contribute if he's not playing with the other skilled players from one of the top two lines? Where they'll finish Division: 5th Conference: 12thmore
