    Bump:

    So Anaheim, Chicago, and Nashville are looking unstoppable, while my Bruins are just fighting for a spot at the big kids table.

    What are your biggest surprises of the year?

    What teams will make big changes going into the 2nd half?

    Who wins the cup and why?

    Biggest surprise is the complete emergence of Tyler Seguin as a dominant scorer. I expected him to get to something close to this, but nowhere near this level and at this stage. Stamkos not scoring at his usual clip is also very unexpected.

    O'Reilly is going to be shipped out to someone. He's not a number one, but he's a damn good number two and defensive presence. Put him on the right team and he can tip the scales. He's almost a young Ryan Kesler and look how much he's changed Anaheim's success.

    Who wins the cup? It's still too early to tell as an injury can happen at any time. It's likely a two horse race in the West between Anaheim and Chicago, but the East seems really open.

    Obviously my biggest shock is how the B's are struggling. I knew it would be a tough year, but not this bad. (Good game tonight tho!)

    Other than that:.. The NJ Devils coaching move!!!!! Toss a hall of fame coach and replace him with not 1, but 2 hall of famers! Big game move that will either tank them to the cellar or bring them a cup. Gutsy, but I like it.
    Also a surprise, the Habs PK Subban having a quiet year; curse of the large $ contract maybe??

    The cup..... I'm with Rodja, I got nuttin yet. Crazy year!!

    Let's hear more opinions guys!! If you don't like hockey... Turn in your man card!!

    I agree on the surprise struggles of B's (but I'm happy about it lol)

    Who win's cup...no telling, I'm a Bolts fan and one night we look like we could make a run, and the next, like we are still a year away (example our 6-3 loss to Pitt tonight)

    Love watching the games though, constant action!

    I'm shocked at how little your boy Stamkos is producing! Think he's hiding an injury?

    No idea haha Our second line has been much better than expected, so if Stamkos can play like he's supposed to I'd feel a lot better about our chances.
    One thing the reporters around here talk about a lot with Stamkos is he really needs someone he's comfortable with to feed him the puck, they've had a hard time finding someone since Vinny left, even when he has looked like his usual self.
