Metropolitan Division

Undoubtedly, the Metropolitan division is the best division in all of hockey. The Division has three of the best teams in the league and 4 elite goaltenders.  The playoff picture for this season should be similar as the last couple of years. The Penguins and the Capitals have the best chances of winning the division.

The Rangers look like they have potential to take the first wild card spot. Although the Penguins, Capitals, and Rangers are the three best teams in the division, don’t sleep on the Devils. With the additions of Hischier, Butcher, Boyle, and Johansson the New Jersey Devils are looking up to be a contender in the next couple of years.
