Coming off a disappointing 82-point effort last season, the Philadelphia Flyers are poised to bounce back in 2019-20. While the defense remains a concern, Philadelphia did an admirable job of solidifying their attack in the off-season. Of course, a team is only as good as its goaltender.

The New Jersey Devils are primed for improvement after finishing the 2018-19 season with the NHL’s third-worst record. Not only were the lottery winners fortunate enough to land Jack Hughes, but they’ll also be getting a healthy Taylor Hall back in their lineup.

The Florida Panthers were an offensive force in the 2018-19 season, but there isn’t any room for error in today’s Atlantic Division. The incredible production of Florida’s young offensive core was spoiled by questionable goaltending and sub-par defensive play. Florida finished the season ninth in goals for but surrendered the fourth-most goals in the NHL…
