Central Division


1. St. Louis Blues

This is probably their last and best shot a hoisting the Cup with the current roster.

2. Dallas Stars

They are here to stay and make some noise.

3. Chicago Blackhawks

The salary cap is starting to slowly peel away at their roster.

4. Nashville Predators

Having P.K. Subban might bring a new influx of life into the team.

5. Minnesota Wild

Their scoring output is almost unmatched, but can they stop anyone from scoring?

6. Winnipeg Jets

They are not a spending spree kind of team and will have to rely on building from within.

7. Colorado Avalanche

The last minute departure of head coach Patrick Roy will set them back a bit.
