    Back with the second season of predictions. Now that I am retired I have 0 bias and I wish every team the best of luck this season! I was able to get help from @Joffman- @dodsyyy- @mjbenny- @Kingerr_- and @oFlxcka for chipping in and adding the Best and Worst Contracts as well as the team’s X-Factor.

    This is probably the most balanced division in the league. Teams 3-7 on this list could genuinely be put in a hat and you could pick them out and choose the order. I originally had the Rangers winning this division but since the Gab ban I see them not having as much success until they fill that 9 mil cap player to replace Jay's contract. They are still my pick to win the cup though as once that hole is filled they have 0 weaknesses. The Islanders aren’t that bad for the bottom of the division, they are missing a top end player but Trauma said he was sending AbailG to the AHL but it looks like he’s on a Veteran Contract? Idk what’s going on there but regardless this is a division that when playoffs come it’ll be Rangers vs Hurricanes and I think the Rags pull through.

    I really underrated a lot of these teams last season but that won't happen again in S18. I think this is Florida’s division to lose. Going into the season, I didn't know if Bo was going to go down the tanking route again like he did with the Rangers in S16 but it looks like he’s going all in and I really like his team! It’ll be a defence first lineup that’ll have to win those 2-1, 3-2 games. Toronto is basically the same team as last season, they just brought everybody back at a higher cost which is fine but they just won’t dominate as much. Ottawa’s got a pretty good lineup as well, they will have one of the best Game 7 forward lineup's for sure. I just don’t see them getting any higher than 3rd in this division. As for the other teams in this division, I just don’t really like them that much. They all have gaping holes in their lineup that’ll become problems as the season goes on and that’s why I think none of them grab a Wild Card. I also wanna give a best of luck shoutout to AssisDragon, Tcx7, Bxrber and Lehkk 31 because that Tampa team is quite interesting. But at least the managers got their friends from the CHL and AHL so I’m sure it’ll be tons of fun!

    Central Division

    Best Contract: @mjbenny-
    Worst Contract: @Darkl79l

    Very similar to last season, this is Arizona’s division to lose. I really like a lot of the contracts they got this season and I think that’ll correspond to their success and I have them winning the Western Conference. My only concern with them is that neither of their goalies have played in the NHL recently. I don’t think Arizona, Minnesota, Dallas and Nashville will have problems grabbing playoff spots, not a huge fan of the other teams in this division though. Seems like we are getting a good idea at what the PPExperience is like and I wish everybody on that team the best of luck. As for the other teams like Chicago, Winnipeg and Colorado they aren’t bad teams they just aren’t playoff teams right now. Maybe some trades can change that but that’s my stance on them right now.


    Pacific Division

    1. :team15: San Jose Sharks
    Best Contract: @Hockeyockey2
    Worst Contract: @Baloukxd

    I really like the team that Liljegren and Catigory built. Being first time managers you never know how bidding will go and they built a super balanced lineup. I think that’s what wins them this division. It’s gonna be super hard for Vegas to repeat as they have an entire new look to them. This is probably the second best division in the league, I really struggled to place a lot of these teams where they were. I like Anaheim’s team a lot but I just see no way that it doesn't become toxic. Pucky was already talking down to ugotwrecked yesterday in the shoutbox apparently and they haven’t even played a game yet! I’m super curious to see how this division plays out from 3-8 because it’s gonna be a dogfight till game #82.

    Season Predictions:
    Western Conference Winner: :team28: Arizona Coyotes
    Eastern Conference Winner: :team12: New York Rangers
    Stanley Cup Winner: :team12: New York Rangers

    Good luck to everybody this season! Please don't take any offence to this thread, you can use it as motivation! Remember this is a FREE league and you guys are playing for FUN.

    Just a heads up, the playoffs aren't determined by division/wild cards this season. They're going back to regular conference standings (excluding 1st seeds). Message from LG McDonald to everyone last month:
    • We have had some requests to change the playoff format back to a 1v8, 2v7 format to better support competitive play.
    • In the AHL we have seen the 5th seed in a division have over 100 points, and not make the playoffs, where a number 1 seed in the other conference make the playoffs with an 85 point season.
    • In the NHL with the current wild card situation, some of the first-round matches ups tend to be more difficult than the later rounds. That would be avoided with a 1v8 system.
    • The regular season format would remain, and the divisional winners would be given the 1st and 2nd seeds based on their seasonal point total, where 3 thru 8 would be decided be based on regular-season point totals.
    • The AHL divisional alignment will be based on the NHL alignment and not the AHL's real-life decision to run a 8-7-7-10 divisional breakdown.
    • We are going to try this and see how it works for this season on both Xbox and PSN

    @LaFleuR11 as an X-Factor is almost as funny as the X-Factor he's pulled in HUT this year.

    What do you think @ImLxziee- ?

    Every team needed a best contract, worst contract and X-Factor. Take it as a compliment!
