New poster, didn't see a lot of posts in this forum. Wishful thinking, but if this team gets solid goaltending from the Fernandez/Thomas combo, coaching thats expected from Julien. Good seasons from Bergeron, Sturm, Chara, Murray, Savard and the rest of the crew. I could see them sneaking in at the 8th spot. If the team does everything of the opposite from what I said in my previous post, I see them finishing anywhere from 10 to 14th in the Eastern Conference.
