The one huge thing that Carolina has going for it is how weak the Southeast division is. That division is probably more "in flux", so to speak, than most divisions. I like their moves they made so they could be a factor and nobody should be surprised if they are.
I have a question for all the puck heads here. Do you see the fans coming back as if nothing happened? I'm looking at places like St. Louis where they drew 5000+ to see a practice or places like Winnipeg who practically had a full arena just to watch practice. I really think that the fans will be back in markets that traditionally have great support for their teams. However, do you see places like Columbus suffer due to this lockout?
