Another prediction style thread, inspired by reading this http://thehockeywrit...s-by-forwards/ 

 

So list the teams with the strongest and weakest forward, defense, goaltending, and coaching situations. 

 

Here's mine:
Best forwards - Pittsburgh, Toronto, Tampa, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Buffalo, Dallas, Washington, in that order.

Worst forwards - Las Vegas, Detroit, Vancouver, Montreal, Arizona (but they'll trend up sometime soon). 

 

Best defense - Nashville, Carolina, St. Louis, Calgary, Columbus, San Jose, Boston, Washington, Ottawa. 

Worst defense - Las Vegas, New Jersey, Colorado, Detroit, Buffalo, Toronto, Vancouver, Dallas.

 

Best goaltending - Washington, Columbus, Montreal, Boston, New Jersey, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Edmonton (departing from my player list a little bit)

Worst goaltending - Carolina, Arizona, Vancouver, Detroit, NYI, Florida, Philly, Winnipeg.

 

Best coaching - Toronto, Chicago, San Jose, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Carolina, Minnesota, Washington, Dallas, Tampa, NYR, Nashville.

Worst coaching - Detroit, Colorado, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Winnipeg, St. Louis. 

Lots of unknowns in coaching.

Vancouver sucks. Almost top to bottom. They're a mess. That's the worst for all categories. I may be over simplifying.

I have Carolina having the best goaltending, not the worst. Darling had a very good year last year.

He might have been a good steal for them.
