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.

The Flames are still going to trade one or more of Frolik, Brodie, Jankowski or Neal (don't see anyone wanting Neal). I think Brodie will fetch a decent return. Frolik might get a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I hope they keep Jankowski as he has turned into a great penalty killer. The key is what they will get for Brodie - hopefully a 2nd line forward. Hamonic's name has been associated with trade rumors, but I hope they keep him as he is a very steady and gritty D man.

The problem I see for Calgary will always be their goaltending and who will replace the monstrous Giordano. He’s old as dirt

Brodie has become the fan favorite whipping boy around the 960 world. Not entirely sure thats justified unless hes riding a monster contract. His game is a slightly better version of Russell who also seems to make more than you would say hes worth but mobile dmen are worth a pretty penny

When the most important player on your team turns 36 in October the future looks bleak long term. Hamonic - LOL!!!
