I got a kick out of this, they rank San Jose as the 5th most improved team so far this off-season. They basically lost their entire second line and a top-3 defender in Braun. They've added nobody, only managed to retain Eriksson who they had all of last season (minus the injuries of course).

Vancouver added a top-4 defenseman, and a reliable bottom pairing guy in Benn, then added JT Miller and now Ferland. But we get a ranking of 14th.

I could easily see San Jose dropping down the standings this year, I don't see them dropping below the Oilers.

3, 4, and 5, are quite likely going to be a fight between Vancouver, San Jose, and Arizona.

That is a bizarre ranking, but I guess if he's assuming Boeser leaves or something it could make sense?

TSN's Oilers preview identifies the D as the biggest weakness, and I agree with Yost that the Sekera buyout makes no sense.
