Hope that Carolina makes the playoffs. Staal needs another 100 point season. It's frustrating being a Canes, because we should be making the playoffs every year with the talent we have.

Eh, I don't know about this year.... Anthony Stewart and Alexei Ponikarovsky might be their first line wingers and that's not exactly ideal.

Anything can happen in the East though.

I think Skinner, Ruutu, and Jokinen are higher in the pecking order. Hopefully we can get the best out of those two like we have with others.

Jokinen-Ruutu-Skinner will likely stay together to start the year on the same line since they were very successful last year. It's better for the team's scoring depth that way. Skinner and Staal will probably get some time together eventually, though. I am hoping that Zach Boychuk can make the team out of camp this year and possibly get a spot on the first line. I sure as hell would prefer him over Anthony Stewart.

Has Montreal really improved enough to still be a lock for the playoffs? I don't see it.

Replace Philly with Pittsburgh and add NYR to the lock list and that's how I would put them.

I wanted to put the Rags on the lock list based on the roster but they always seem to find a way to underachieve every year

I don't think it'd be that unlikely for both Gaborik or Richards to miss a significant amount of time. That could really set them back. I still think they'll make the playoffs, but saying they're a lock is a bit of a stretch.

Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren is hospitalized in stable condition following a bike accident in southern New Jersey on Monday.

According to a report on CSNPhilly.com, Holmgren was riding his bike in Avalon, N.J., when he suffered a broken shoulder, broken ribs and other injuries in the accident.

Holmgren, 55, was taken to Cooper Medical Center in Camden, N.J., for treatment. A spokesperson for the hospital only said Holmgren was in stable condition and refused further comment.

Sources told CSNPhilly's Tim Panaccio that Avalon police had no details of how the accident occurred in the initial report filed with them.

Flyers officals told CSNPhilly.com late Monday night they hoped to have more information Tuesday. Holmgren is expected to recover from his injuries, they said.
