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."
