    Without checking, I'd say undoubtedly the Penguins and their 14 game winning streak.

    I think I more or less agree.
    Atlanta may win the division again. Lehtonen will only get stronger.

    Washington I expected to be last this year, but did well for the first half of the season. If they manage to sign Drury or Briere to play with Ovechkin they could make some noise, but there's little chance that Washington, Florida or Boston makes the playoffs.

    7th-12th will be insane though again.

    I think the Pens could steal 1st.

    Check out what Conn Smythe winner Cam Ward just signed for.
    Fleury will NOT be making $5 million next contract. Armstrong will probably never make $3 million (what a joke).
    Staal's ceiling is $5 million. I highly doubt he'll be making MORE than his brother does (his 100 point scoring brother) in 2 years.
    Malkin could make $7 million, but he also might make Heatley/Alfredsson/Spezza money.

    The Pens have no problems in 2-3 years. it's 6-8 years that they'll have problems when all these guys are in their primes.

    I know not everyone has time to do proper research, that's why I was kind enough to give you a direct link that would save you the hassle, and take you all of 15 seconds to find your answers.

    You're welcome! I'm glad it helped!!

    PS, what's ''funtional''?

    You just inferred that I was acting like a child. Perhaps you should be banned.

    As others will attest to, I respond in kind only when initially attacked in kind. It's called karma.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Hardly.  I merely said you were being rude.  Its a pretty obvious thing, as that seems to be your demeanor at least half the time.  Everyone can read it for themselves.

    And you may have forgotten, but the very first encounter I had with you, you were rude to me, as well.  I was not replying to anything you said, and was not posting to a thread you had written.  I stated an opinion.  You responded in a rude fashion by telling me to "give my head a shake," and that my opinion made no sense.  So no, you do not respond in kind only when initially attacked.  
    But whatever.  This thread is already way off the main page, and I don't wish to go digging for it all the time.  Later.
