I agree there great but you can not forget that forsburg is awesome

Absolutely great team, Rinne, Subban, Arvidsson are all great players. Mark my words the Predators are no way going to miss the playoffs. - TheHabsFan

2 Tampa Bay Lightning Tampa Bay Lightning The Tampa Bay Lightning are a professional ice hockey team based in Tampa, Florida. It is a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. The Lightning have one Stanley Cup championship in their history, in 2003–04.

Vasilevskiy, Stamkos, Point are few of many great players. The Lightning should have an easy time making the playoffs. - TheHabsFan

3 Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto Maple Leafs The Toronto Maple Leafs are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario, that competes in the National Hockey League.

With Matthews injured early in the season, the hopes for the Leafs making the playoffs fell a bit, but they are still definitely making the playoffs. - TheHabsFan

4 San Jose Sharks San Jose Sharks The San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Their start to the season didn't look too promising, but I think they'll pick up and easily make the playoffs. - TheHabsFan

5 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.

They did, but they only won game 1, it was disappointing series thanks to avalanche tying it late in the 3rd, and winning in overtime, in game 2 and 4, sorry avalanche fans, but that was upsetting for me

The Flames are a very talented team, they just need to work on their chemistry a bit. I think the Flames should be able to make the playoffs. - TheHabsFan

6 Boston Bruins Boston Bruins The Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Bruins compete in the National Hockey League as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Bruins should be able to clinch the playoffs. Unless the Habs continue to surprise the entire league, which as much as I like the sound of that I doubt it's going to happen. - TheHabsFan

7 Winnipeg Jets Winnipeg Jets The Winnipeg Jets are a professional ice hockey team based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League. The Avalanche are the only team in their division not based in the Central Time Zone; the team is situated in the Mountain ...read more.

Rantanen is so talented along with Landeskog and others. The Avs should be able to make the playoffs pretty easily. - TheHabsFan

10 Minnesota Wild Minnesota Wild The Minnesota Wild are a professional ice hockey team based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Great defensive team. I can't believe that Dubnyk used to be the Habs forth backup goalie. Lol, that always makes me mad! - TheHabsFan

Hopefully the wild can actually beat a team in the playoffs I’m from Minnesota so I mostly pay attentionto the Vikings but I watch the wild playoff games - RawIsgore
