    To pickup at the 2/3rds and some change mark on the S34 review much has already been decided. This review is going to be slightly different than the 1/3rd where I touched on teams that I thought were a surprise good and bad, teams I expected to be good and bad as well as a teams playing above or below expectations.


    Week 6 is one of the highlights every season, we see gifts, we see snakes, we see quits and we see it all. You can look at the standings and there are only a few battles going on but almost all of these battles will continue into the Playoffs at this point we can start to pick who are the contenders, who is just existing and who is going to need therapy for the next 3 weeks.


    Favorites

    In my opinion these teams are a step ahead of the rest. They have all the key pieces to win a cup, top notch management, great contracts and the experience to get the job done.


    Carolina Hurricanes

    The Canes are the one team in the East I would hate to play in the playoffs and that isn’t a jab at other teams, this team is just built for the playoffs. With Jclaus and Scaryjoey as management, Gwan on the backend and the absolute worst West line to play against yeah this team is going to cause some problems in a best of 7. With the recent success for these Bunch of Jerks its becoming a real possibility this team will have home ice advantage throughout the playoffs which will allow them to really take full advantage of that west line. Barring any major set backs this is the team to beat.


    St Louis Blues

    No disrespect to the Western Playoff Teams but I think the Blues will coast until the Stanley Cup Finals. The team is built around some great contracts like Bk, sharpshooter, risk, lew and easily the best contract in the league Thibodd it also has 2 big game players with Tendy and Marco eating up the free contracts. Add Vaporize, Theos and Hit DaT I just don’t see a team that can really compete with them in the West. The only concern for me is the 3rd line. It isn’t a bad 3rd line but I do think it is one of the weaker 3rd lines out of the Top Teams in the League.





    Contenders


    Washington Capitals

    When Karmuh and Dubz teamed up this season I expected them to be good but I honestly didn’t expect them to be as good as they are but they continue to impress rolling 3 high octane forward lines. They have the most inspirational player in the league as well as great chemistry throughout the lineup. A few weeks ago I would have taken Washington over Carolina but as we stand I think Carolina is a “Half Full Percent” better than the Caps just like Pattelite is a “Half Full Percent” better than Chr1s. We most likely will see the Canes and Caps faceoff in the playoffs and that will be a must watch series and probably the best series we will see all playoffs.



    Seattle Thunderbirds

    I will say this over and over the strength of the league this season is in the East but the Thunderbirds have a Defense that can shut down even the best teams and picking up Mattaka and Wayne during the deadline really adds to an already great back end. The struggles for this team recently has been scoring goals. Defense wins championships and they are going to need their defense to be on the top of its game in order to make it through the west.


    The Don’t Look Past Thems

    Detroit Red Wings

    Jakoo builds great teams its just what he does and this season is no exception. The top 2 lines here are sick and the 3rd line will continue to win games. Merana, Odiee and NeNe will be forced to anchor down a mediocre defensive core if they want to compete with in a very difficult east. They certainly can upset some teams in the playoffs and although they are 3rd in the Atlantic I think they are the best team in that division.


    Toronto Maple Leafs

    DDW and Blur build teams built of chem season in and season out. They area team that is banking on the offense and Game 7 line to win them series. When you have one of the best game 7 forward groups in the league you can make some sacrifices elsewhere and in the case of Toronto that sacrifice comes on the back end. They have a bunch of good role players on defense that are going to have to play some of their best hockey if they want to break the curse that haunts Toronto.



    Colorado Avalanche

    Sejjes Year. I honestly don’t think you need any more explanation than that but I will give it to you. This is a deep team with no holes in it. You got a hell of a game 7 line with Dan Sejje and Moe. You got 2 starting goalies with Sorokin and Viper. You have 6 dmen who are all 2-3 guys. A 3rd line that probably has a combined 4000 hours played and tons of chemistry. If there is an underdog team I can see knocking off the Blues this is it.



    Los Angeles Kings

    98, Jared and Luigi are great players. 98, Jared and Luigi build great teams. 98, Jared and Luigi go deep in the playoffs. These guys have the formula and continue to be considered one of the best management groups in the league. Coming off a season that we saw arguably the best team LG has ever seen you had to expect them to come back down to reality and they did the crazy thing is reality for these guys is making it to the WCF. This is a tough team to play against and an even tougher one to gauge. Regardless this is a team I would not want to see in the playoffs.

    Great write up @Mr Ray Shero, give it a 99.5. You miss a full half percent because you didn’t tag the Canes captain (aka me).

    You are the xfactor for Carolina. If you show up for your games they will probably lose. Carolina needs to ECU if they want to win the cup

    Carolina has a west goalie and multiple west skaters. Even on east that "3rd Line" is very good.
