Which NHL team might surprise you this season? Tue, October 2, 2007
Every team in the NHL made off-season moves in an effort to bolster their lineup, but only some will end up liking what they got.
The Philadelphia Flyers hit a home run by signing centre Daniel Briere and the Florida Panthers were wise to acquire goaltender Tomas Vokoun via trade.
The New York Rangers also made a splash by signing Scott Gomez and Chris Drury in the off-season. Sidney Crosby, now 20, looks to defend his scoring title and lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to new heights.
In the West, the Anaheim Ducks will defend their Stanley Cup title without Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne in the lineup due to talk of retirement. The Ducks also lost Dustin Penner to the Edmonton Oilers.
The Detroit Red Wings are likely to continue their dominance of the weak Central Division.
Another season, another run to the title. Give us your thoughts on which team might surprise in the NHL this season and why that will happen.
