TSN has posted a very interesting pre-season poll of 27 GMs. It's worth taking a look at.
Some of the highlights:
- Ovechkin as the consensus pick for Best Player in the League.
- Kipper as the concensus pick over Brodeur as the League's best goaltender (Luongo received the third most votes).
- Great improvement is expected from the Chara-led Bruins (which I don't understand, somebody's still gotta score, right?).
- Brian Burke's Ducks are expected to win it all.
Apparently they withdrew the question about "Player most likely to bring their Club down in flaming wreckage" after receiving a threatening letter from dan Cloutier's lawyer . . .
