Pre-Season Predictions - East Conference

This is the final of my pre-season prediction posts.  I am ranking the teams in the East Conference in the order I expect them to finish.  I have already done this for the West Conference.  I have already written blurbs for the East Conference teams in their divisional proviews: the Northeast Division, Atlantic Division and Southeast Division.

Here is my predicted order of finish for the East Conference:

1. Pittsburgh Penguins
2. Boston Bruins
3. Washington Capitals
4. New York Rangers
5. Carolina Hurricanes
6. Buffalo Sabres
7. Philadelphia Flyers
8. Ottawa Senators

9. New Jersey Devils
10. Tampa Bay Lightning
11. Toronto Maple Leafs
12. Florida Panthers
13. Montreal Canadiens
14. New York Islanders
15. Winnipeg Jets

So the Sens were “hard-pressed to match their 2012 results” in the Northwest predictions, yet now you’re saying they *will* match their 2012 results?

I suppose what I meant was Ottawa took a big step forward last year and I think they will be hard-pressed to take another step forward.
