The Top Ten

1 St. Louis Blues St. Louis Blues The St. Louis Blues are a professional ice hockey team in St. Louis, Missouri. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

They were 1 win away and still have Vladimir - B0S5J4M3S

Talented, sans goaltending. I would say they are darn near a lock - Ned964

2 Calgary Flames Calgary Flames The Calgary Flames are a professional ice hockey team based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Flames are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Great hockey organization. Add in you sage observation, and it's just a matter of time here - Ned964

Great D Sick top line. All they need is depth - B0S5J4M3S

3 Edmonton Oilers Edmonton Oilers The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Even though they have no d and no wingers they still have Connor McDavid - B0S5J4M3S

Agreed. I would just add there are wingers who should step up at some point. Connor is sick - Ned964

4 Florida Panthers Florida Panthers The Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.

Chock full of young talent, if their administration can't get this team deep into the playoffs next season... Well, someone's got to go. - Ned964

They were VERY close to and with the cap and prospect to trade they could easily be back in next year - B0S5J4M3S

Definitely

5 Dallas Stars Dallas Stars The Dallas Stars are a professional ice hockey team based in Dallas, Texas. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

They're getting some age on them, but there is still plenty of talent. It's a little tougher in the West now, some solid teams are just gonna miss the post season. I would add my Minnesota Wild would be a prime candidate to not make the playoffs - Ned964

This team was in it until they started to slump and with the chance a Heiskanen-Klingberg this team should be in it - B0S5J4M3S

6 Carolina Hurricanes Carolina Hurricanes The Carolina Hurricanes are a professional ice hockey team based in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League.

They have a great d core Svechnikov will help out and it will really all depend on goaltending - B0S5J4M3S

9 Arizona Coyotes Arizona Coyotes The Arizona Coyotes are a professional ice hockey team based in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Arizona.

Big, physical team. If they get in, they'll be a tough out. - Ned964

The Yotes picked it up at the end and started to improve a little but really if Strome and the other youngsters still play like busts no playoffs - B0S5J4M3S

10 Detroit Red Wings Detroit Red Wings The Detroit Red Wings are a professional ice hockey team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League and are one of the Original Six teams of the league.
