  NHL Preview: Eastern ConferencePDF files may take a moment to load

1. Washington Capitals

This team has Alexander Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, Nicklas Backstrom and Mike Green. The offence is set. And after that embarrassing loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in game seven of last year's Eastern Conference semi-finals, they'll be motivated. Of course, there are a lot of question marks on this team: Can Semyon Varlamov play as well as he did in the playoffs? Does the team have the defence to help him out? Maybe. But with the offence they have, they can cover a lot of mistakes.

  NHL Preview: Western ConferencePDF files may take a moment to load

1. Detroit Red Wings

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Red Wings rode their stacked roster and their team first mentality to a second-straight Stanley Cup Finals appearance. Despite being bested by the upstart Pittsburgh Penguins, the Wings are still the class of the Western Conference until another team proves that they're not. Look for them to continue to feast on the slim pickings of the Central Division.

2. San Jose Sharks

  Arctic Institute features bear-escaping journalist PDF files may take a moment to load

Ed Struzik laughed as he reminisced about the time he was placed in a metal cage, in freezing Arctic weather so he could try and take photos of a polar bear.

All was going well. A polar bear had come close to Struzik's cage and he was able to snap some great shots. The bear walked around the cage and then started sticking his nose into it. The polar bear got on his hind legs and tried to get on top of the cage.

  Dinos follow Nill to top of the conferencePDF files may take a moment to load

This is only the fourth season for the Dinos football program under head coach Blake Nill, but the team has already surfaced as the cream of the Canada West crop.

The Dinos are ranked third overall in the nation and are tops in their conference at 3-1 midway through the season.

It's no wonder then that he managed to pull some key players from Saint Mary's University when he left and that he continues to be one of the top recruiters in the country.
