Predictions...Sure to Crash and Burn

Hope springs eternal here at CasonBlog. Here are my Eastern Conference picks (x marking the playoff bound teams) for this season:

Northeast:
xOttawa-They're mad, and they're not going to take it anymore
xBoston-Great mix of youth and maturity
xMontreal-Youth and speed kills
Toronto-Fratricide and civil war breaks out in Leaf Nation
Buffalo-Wandering aimlessly

Southeast:
xTampa-Marty and Vinny rule under the new rules
xCarolina-Vasicek, Cole, Williams emerge as stars
Atlanta-If they sign Ilya, they might move up
Florida-Applesauce and medicine for the grandpas
Crapitals-Overchkin grumbles about going back to Rooosha

Atlantic:
xPhiladelphia-Despite planting redwoods on defense
xNew Jersey-Wiley and always in the mix in a division not that strong
xPittsburgh-I'm talking Recchi, Mario, Dick, and Sergei, not so much Syd
NYI-Captain Yashin?
NYR-Under construction

Ottawa moves on to the Cup finals
