Hey All

The NHL has somehow managed to reach the halfway mark and now we will see some really tough schedules down the stretch.

The question then is which teams will survive this season, making the playoffs once everything is said and done. The East looks pretty settled and the West looks really chaotic. Though the Central has four pretty solid teams in Colorado, Nashville, St. Louis and Minnesota and any of them could finish first. The Pacific is really wide open which speaks to its parity as well as its mediocrity. The debate over whether or not the wild cards in the West are anywhere near as good as the ones in the East will likely persist.

Watch for further posts on this blog soon and I apologize for not putting out a post sooner. Stay tuned.
