DET - No one had them picked to be this good. Legace is solid and Datsyuk and Zetterberg are ready to shine.
NAS - Breakout year, Kariya is comeback player of the year.
STL - Bad team, will finish last overall
CHI - Slow start, but very energetic. Khabibulin is getting stronger, they should improve. Like Vorobiev
CLB - The Blue Jackets have been disappointing, no Nash, and Zherdev playing like he isn't in the lineup either.
VAN - Solid team, BErtuzzi looks a bit lossed. He thinks he is a plymaker instead of a goal scorer.
COL - Interesting team, surprising play by Turgeon, Brisebois, and Brunette. Goaltending is the big question, and extension were not picked up on Sakic and Blake contracts
MIN - Trap? Lemaire is a genious.
CGY - bad start, have not adjusted to the new NHL
EDM - Bad start, Pronger struggling. Lowe thought Peca was a scoring centre - think again, and no goalie.
LA - Hard working team, doing strong even with J.R. off to a slow start
DAL - TUrco is having a bad start.
PHX - Gretzky is really into it, I think they will improve.
ANA - Giguere not looking good, poor start. Selanne looks young and fast again
SJ - slow start, will bounce back
