Do the off season moves by the Rangers and Flyers make the Atlantic Division the toughest in hockey?
I am not necessarily saying the best or most talented nor am I saying that the Stanley Cup will land back here in the east, but will it be the toughest division to win? You have the Penguins who are the young up and comers. They have a solid young core along with a few very capable veterans. The Rangers were a playoff team who added two more stars to their lineup. Lou Lamourello and the Devils have always been able to plug in players as they were needed and be successful. The Flyers appear to have completed their face-lift adding a considerable amount of talent to another relatively young squad. Is the Atlantic Divison going to be the toughest in the league? If so, why? If not, which will be tougher and why?

Top to bottom, there is no question the Atlantic will be the toughest division to play in. The unbalanced schedule will make it even tougher for the 5 teams... More

Well basically I think it does make it a more competitive division but there were also losers in the UFA game, namely the Isles and the Devils so what we may see is a shift of the balance of power with the Rangers, Pens and Flyers duking it out for the top spot while the other two flounder at the bubble line.

Yes, it will be the toughest. You made some key points. The Rangers and Penguins both have some good, young players, though the Pens have a few more. But the Rangers mix of young guns and veterans seems to be the key. Some of their players fit both categories, such as the recently-acquired Drury (who WILL wear 23... More

Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, how is the Pacific Division not getting attention for this one? The Ducks, Sharks, and Stars were all fantastic teams last year, putting up 110pts, 107pts, and 107pts respectively, and none of those three look to be any worse for this coming season. The Pacific Division wasn't won... More
