SBN - 12th in the West (Last week: 11th in the West)
"The Jackets could use some middle school type motivation."
Yahoo! Sports - 25th out of 30 (Last week: 28th)
"One goal, no assists and a minus-3 in four games isn’t the kind of start that Rick Nash envisioned."
ESPN - 29th out of 30 (Last week: 20th)
"Big win in Minnesota on Saturday night, but we want to see more to convince us this won't be a bottom-feeding team this season."
Matt gave me his insight and gave me a really good laugh: "I think this is what they refer to as "Being shit on."
CBS Sports - 29th out of 30 (Last week: 26th)
"Looking for big things this season from the kid line of Brassard, Filatov and Voracek."
TSN - 23rd out of 30 (Last week: 28th)
"Ah, the need for immediate gratification. I'm already getting the question: What is wrong with Rick Nash? The short answer (at least for now): nothing. He's averaging 4.0 shots per game (4.11 is his career-high and he had 3.34 last year), so the opportunities are there. He's just finished 6.3% so far, a rate less than half of his career average. The puck will start going in for him."
The Dispatch - 22nd out of 30 (Last week: 17th)
"Narrow win in St. Paul should be tempered by the realization that the Wild aren't very good."
