Remember how smart guys were talking about how the 2011 draft class didn’t have much in the way of immediately-ready NHL talent? Yeah, about that… Eight draftees will start the year on NHL rosters.

All right, who ya got? PHT wants to know who you think takes home the Stanley Cup this season.

While the left wing job is up in the air, reports indicate that Wojtek Wolski is the frontrunner to play alongside Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik. Can the large but often soft winger take advantage of this golden opportunity, though?

A move to the wing (and hopefully more power play time) could help Tyler Seguin improve next season. The question is: will he make a small step forward or take a giant leap in 2011-12?
Oct 4, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT
The Flyers made some eye-opening moves today, even if Brayden Schenn’s demotion might just be temporary. The real question revolves around their penalty kill situation, though.

The Capitals and Penguins will join forces to help families affected by the Lokomotiv tragedy during their Oct. 13 game in Pittsburgh.

Matt Duchene has produced remarkably similar stats to John Tavares, who went two picks higher in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Perhaps that’s why he’s asking for a remarkably similar second contract.

While they await MRI results, the Lightning placed aging defenseman Mattias Ohlund on the injured reserve.

The Flyers have high expectations for one Czech who might be past his prime (Jaromir Jagr) and one who might not quite be there yet (Jakub Voracek).

As PHT speculated about a week ago, the Rangers decided to waive pest Sean Avery. It marks another low point in a career that’s starting to have far more valleys than peaks and begs the question about the 31-year-old forward’s future.

After acquiring Mike Richards and Simon Gagne (and re-signing Drew Doughty), some say this could be the best Kings team in franchise history. But will that be enough to win the Pacific and make a deep run into the playoffs this season?
Oct 4, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Will the Ducks be able to ride their fantastic finish last season to yet another playoff appearance this season. Never underestimate the power of an elite scoring line and great goaltending.

Many people critique Alex Ovechkin for an off year in 2010-11, but Bodog gives him the best odds to win the Hart Trophy next season. Check out their picks for other awards in this post.

People have vastly underestimated Phoenix over the last two seasons and the Coyotes have consistently exceeded expectations. But without Ilya Bryzgalov around and question marks in net, is this the season when the Coyotes fall from the playoff race?

Once again, the Sharks will battle among the league’s elite as they try to take the next step in their development. Back-to-back appearances in the Western Conference final have set the bar fairly high in the Bay Area; and they have a team that has the chance to fulfill the lofty expectations.

Marc Staal’s continued neck and post-concussion issues will keep him from joining the Rangers in Europe. Time to worry in Manhattan?

All right, you can make the Swiss pun for yourselves as the Rangers were dropped like a sack of Toblerones by EV Zug 8-4 in an exhibition in Switzerland.
