OK, well we have a lock on 3rd in the SE...well, maybe 4th if Winnipeg manages to feed off their home crowd like they did last year.
Going into the season, I think we are probably the second best team right now in the SE. Caps didn't do anything to make themselves better. Tampa will be the team to beat, with Florida slipping a little after winning the SE division on shootout losses last year. It looks like the Caps want to see how things shake out with what they have, then try to make some noise at the trade deadline. Hope it works out.
