The Beasts of the East

So I got a lot of positive feedback about my How the West Will Be Won article, so why don’t I show you guys the East. I got a lot of garbage comments about the Eastern Conference, because I said that it was too easy to predict. I’ll prove to you once again that the east is easy!

Puck Sight (Sept. 7)

The status of Jason Allison has been the subject of numerous submissions lately, I’ll outline a few of them for everyone.
