Not a top 10 center in the league? finished 16th in scoring out of all players last year.

If he's outside of the top 10 then you're ranking guys like Matthews, Scheifele, Getzlaf, and Toews above him.

Talking

Crosby, Malkin, McDavid, Schieffle, Bergeron, Getzlaf, Barkov, Stamkos, Kopitar, Backstrom, McKinnon, Pavelski, Seguin, Giroux...

he’s not far off top 10... I didn’t say he’s terrible... just my perspective- don’t get to see him play much maybe that factors in?

I dunno seems like I’m the minority here I guess ...

And yeah, I might even say Matthews and Draisaitl are more comparable ? Or should I zip it

Scheifele, Pavelski, Seguin, Giroux, Barkov, Backstrom, Getzlaf, MacKinnon are not better centres than Tavares. Next.

Tavares is an easy top 10C in the NHL. He's likely number four or five.

Meanwhile, a centre that's almost as good as Tavares (), Ryan O'Reilly, is heading to the Blues. Central division continues to be the thunderdome.

The O'Reilly trade shows the true beauty of signing Tavares. No assets lost for the Leafs, still have all their picks, didn't lose any prospects or players from the roster. Tavares comes with a bigger cap hit but then again he is also better.

Wow that's a fair bit of term that Calgary gave Neal.

Edit: I didn't realize he was only 30. That contract takes him until he's 35. Might hurt for the last year or so but I like that deal.

I like it too. The Flames have made some great moves already - way more depth up front than last season. I hope they dump Brouwer soon to free up some salary, though. After all, Chucky needs to get paid next season.

Neal's contract has no NMC / NTC, so the Flames could easily expose him in the expansion draft in 3-4 years if Seattle's franchise is ready by then.

I'm pretty positive he can't be signed by the Jets. It's circumventing the cap.

Boston, Tampa, and Toronto all look good. The rest are mediocre at best. Maybe Buffalo or Florida have a good year but I don't have high hopes for Detroit, Ottawa, or Montreal.

As usual the Central Division is where the arms race is. That division will be insane, again.

I'm expecting Florida to be really good. They were on such a tear to end the season. If they can manage Bobby Lou's health by keeping him to 50 games, they should be in the mix for a playoff spot.

Wouldn't be surprised for the Atlantic standings to finish the same as last year. Tampa is still the best, the Leafs might be able to beat out Boston depending on injuries for both teams. Could see Florida sneaking a wildcard spot.

I just want the season to start now.

Well Buffalo is close to Canada and Vancouver is close to the states so that makes sense.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a team fall so hard and fast as the Senators have. From being one goal away to the finals to the biggest dumpster fire of an off-season in one year.

Buffalo was my sleeper team until they traded Ryan O'Reilly. Not really sure the thinking there, I know he was unhappy but their rebuild should be over with Dahlin having been the last piece.

I miss the days when you could make a blockbuster trade and turn your team around overnight. Canucks are gonna be bad for another 5 years.
