This is one of the questions we asked in our season preview. I chose Colorado and Winnipeg. The Avs were a slam dunk for me, but I seriously considered every other team before I settled on the Jets. If I had to pick again today, I might choose Minnesota. Or maybe even Chicago. Or, I might just throw six team names in a hat.
Anyway, I’m glad it was one of our questions, because the Central Division is every bit as strong as we thought it would be, if not stronger.
Here’s what the standings look like today:
Remember, only five teams can make the playoffs from any division.
We won’t include Colorado in the poll, because, well, you know. (Prove me wrong, Avs!) So assuming only three Pacific Division teams qualify, who’s going to be the one out of the six to miss in the Central?
