MONTREAL CANADIENS

THN PREDICTION | 8TH IN ATLANTIC THINGS CAN ONLY get better for the Canadiens after finishing with the worst record in the NHL last season. They had a spark after Martin St-Louis took over as coach in February, and now they’ll have him for a full season. Carey Price remains the biggest question mark after he was limited to five games in 2021-22 following knee surgery and 30 days in the NHL/NHLPA player-assistance program. Price had a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his knee during the off-season and is doing everything he can to start the season in goal. GM Kent Hughes was able to trade the final four seasons of Shea Weber’s contract to Vegas, which is one less headache for him. Juraj Slafkovsky, the No. 1 overall pick in the…

Juuse Saros

BEST IN SHOW

IF YOU WERE inclined to drop 20 bucks on a membership to the Preds Pet Club last season, you would have received, among other things, an autographed 5-by-7 photo of Juuse Saros and his Siberian Husky, Kesa. It probably goes without saying that the photo was signed by Saros, not Kesa. But where they actually had us was at the Preds Light Up Poop Bag Holder. Where do we sign up for that? It turns out that aside from being one of the NHL’s best goalies, Saros is also an animal lover. So much so that he actually has a tattoo of Kesa on his right forearm. The money raised by the Preds Pet Club goes to help local animal shelters and foster organizations, something that is near and dear to…

NEW YORK RANGERS

THN PREDICTION | 2ND IN METROPOLITAN AFTER A SURPRISING, gritty march to the Eastern Conference final, the Rangers couldn’t simply run it back for the 2022-23 season. Why not? Well, prior to last season, the Rangers had enough cap space to sign Mika Zibanejad to an eight-year extension to join Chris Kreider and Artemi Panarin with long-term deals. They nurtured some top prospects and landed Andrew Copp, Frank Vatrano and Tyler Motte at the trade deadline. Along with Vezina Trophy winner Igor Shesterkin, they lifted the Blueshirts into second place in the Metropolitan Division and helped fuel a deep playoff journey. Entering this summer, however, GM Chris Drury was in a much different position. Six core players – Zibanejad, Kreider, Panarin, Shesterkin, Adam Fox and Jacob Trouba – were locked in for…
