    When me and @MrPurpleCrush first prepared for these write-ups, we did all standing predictions and grades first. Just to close off these previews, although this isn't in-depth by any means, here are those grades and predictions for the Metro and Pacific:


    Metropolitan Division


    1) :team78: - Pittsburgh Penguins

    Forwards - A+

    Lines

    @eastons17 - @KingClutch x 77 - @nehxC

    @alanscanucks - @xNav61 - @Hriiz

    @Claeys - @Tychi66 - @xDubz47


    Defencemen - B+


    Pairings

    @Lajikel - @x_ReAcTiiOnz_71

    @ItsJodach - @Girgs28

    @CelpHxTitleD506 - @Reincremation


    Goalies - B+


    @Lach12

    @Lehk-


    Conclusion: The last few seasons, my doubt in this team was stored more in them not having enough depth up front. They found that last season and outscored their problems on defence on the way to barely losing out on the division title. This season they’ll outscore their way to the Metro Division lead. (ps: while I think they take a bit of a hit offensively swapping mooresy for Dubz, upgrading jmligt to Lajikel is a really nice job done by Nav)


    2) :team12: - New York Rangers


    Forwards - B+


    My Projected Lines

    @KMAC - @x Chyzz - @APX x 93

    @SirGab- - @SebQc97 - @Mondy-_-91

    @Hra-ow - @Dansne - @Jasono_x_l96l


    Defencemen - B+


    My Projected Pairings

    @Bo-Dangles10 - @Big_Gren

    @SMx71- - @Mike813499

    Guy - @xBrando92


    Goalies - B+


    @Breezy5457

    @ciulla19


    Conclusion: I’m a little worried about the depth on the back end, but Bo knows how to install a team-oriented defence with any unit that puts on the Rangers’ uniform. With no A1 contributor, I think we’ll see contributions from all over the place to get this team wins.


    3) :team6: - Columbus Blue Jackets


    Forwards - B+


    My Projected Lines

    @The_Blind_Ref - @Akonvict21 - @jeff0012

    @Schwartz_x9 - @i9-Stamkos-1i - @eZDangles

    @AgedEmbryo - @Maxx_20 - @curlew7


    Defencemen - A-


    My Projected Pairings

    @stammerchel - @RSall14

    @Goouuu x 27 - @Oso-Sic

    @bigdogrex - @killerzqc


    Goalies - B


    @AhL_Allstar-3

    @Canadas__Game416


    Conclusion: A solid team, I wonder a bit about the creativity on offence with some of their wingers but getting Sall at that 6.5 million contract was such a huge help to finish off building this roster.


    4) :team4: - Philadelphia Flyers


    Forwards - B-


    My Projected Lines

    @Krejci l46I - @HJHF14 - @BlaCky_lIX

    @Goofy_indian - @ScooTz-10 - @djunreal2010

    @SEJerome26 - @Extendo28 - I don’t know


    Defencemen - B+


    My Projected Pairings

    @IceAJ420 - @Bry2230

    @Desjy99 - @xCounter43x

    @Tk3rr1994 - @Jeown


    Goalies - B


    @chadkillz134

    @Navyynick


    Conclusion: Even though this team has a solid top-4 on defence, there’s just too many holes on offence in comparison to the first three teams in the Metro to give them a playoff spot.


    5) :team14: - Washington Capitals


    Forwards - B-


    Lines

    @Kev I97l - @CRAZYROGO-1-7 - @GhostMK

    Goalies - B-


    @Agger23

    @SliyumShady


    Conclusion: The first unit is going to get wins, then the questions come with the rest of the line-up. It’s the one team we have ranked below 3rd that I wouldn’t be surprised to see in a playoff spot at the end of the season.


    6) :team74: - Carolina Hurricanes


    Forwards - C+

    8) :team7: - New Jersey Devils

    @JVIysterious-

    @Speedytdawg88


    Conclusion: The forwards are gonna do their jobs for the most part but I just don’t see them producing enough to cover for that back end.



    Pacific Division

    1) :team76: - Los Angeles Kings

    Forwards - A

    @JKHank07

    @JuulPod-


    Conclusion: Depth is going to be the M.O. of the Kings. Perfect chance for Thoma to avoid the 2-3 week slumps he’s experienced the last few seasons and reach 20+ wins for the first time. If that happens it’s really going to be hard to knock this team out of first.


    2) :team28: - Arizona Coyotes


    Forwards - A-

    @XxKickaPooXx

    @zeffster


    Conclusion: The last time Sean had a GM capable of 20+ wins, his Panthers won the Atlantic with 116 points. Mix in having Joe along with one of the best biddings, and this team is going to be a major problem.


    3) :team15: - San Jose Sharks


    Forwards - B

    @TomFerland69 - @Atreyal


    Goalies - A


    @Penguins2013

    @Perkosaurus13


    Conclusion: Another Sharks team with only a couple holes up front and a stacked defence and goalie tandem. AC was probably the best contract to come out of bidding. This team with one more move at forward would make this division a three-horse race.


    4) :team676: - Vegas Golden Knights

    Conclusion: Could challenge for a wild card spot if the team doesn’t self-destruct every week... also am I tripping or is there no west line/unit?

    Pretty sure that Philly 2nd line is a west line, that’ll for sure help.

    I like your write-ups. Think Carolina will def have Skillzy and Paradis playing IMO they are 100% able to play in the NHL.
