Last year was no flash in the pan. Alex Pietrangelo is a budding defensive superstar, while Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz will be ready to crack the lineup of the league’s stiffest forecheck and hardest working team. Get the ice bags ready when matching up against centers David Backes and Patrik Berglund.

Do not doubt coach Dave Tippett. Don’t do it. The playoffs will return to the desert for the fourth straight season behind a diverse defense and excellent goaltending. Can 35-goal man Radim Vrbata bounce back from a muted playoff run, and without Ray Whitney?

Considering the talent on this team, the prospect depth and how good it looked under coach Bruce Boudreau, the Ducks could certainly slot higher. Considering they finished 15 points out of the playoffs last year, they could certainly slot lower. This is a playoff bubble team with both upside and downside.

The Oilers started quick out of the gate a year ago, and in a shortened schedule that type of start has a much better chance of being maintained. Justin Schultz, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle will all be fine – we’re hoping to see that leap toward hockey’s elite by Taylor Hall.

The young forwards’ continued development and Gabriel Landeskog’s role as the youngest captain in league history will be interesting to watch in Colorado. This team certainly has the pieces to contend for a playoff spot. Uhh, is Ryan O’Reilly going to sign anytime soon?

A new staff under Peter DeBoer will have to continue to get excellent returns from a so-so defense and a 40-year-old goaltender in Martin Brodeur. Though strong offensively a season ago, there have been defections from the top-six, making New Jersey more of a playoff-cusp team than an actual contender.

The Stars lost toughness and a consistent first-line center in Mike Ribeiro over the offseason, while proven finisher Jamie Benn remains unsigned. There were a handful of Western Conference teams that improved over the offseason; Dallas wasn’t one of them.

There’s not much hope of rebounding significantly after the Habs bottomed out last year, but where there’s Carey Price, there’s a chance. P.K. Subban carries the load on what could be an effective defense, but he’s still a ways apart from the team in contract negotiations.
