It has been hard to tell over the last ten years but I've got a feeling that might change now. The Bruins will be back!

Looks like a step in the right direction. Harry was know to be tight with the money and never did assemble a team that could be competitive. Go Bruins!

The preseason is over. It looks to me like the Blackhawks will be tuff. That is a change for sure. Also Nashville may be a team to beat.
