• Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu will get support. Look for a breakout season from Charlie Coyle and impacts from Jason Pominville and young Nino Niederreiter.

7. VANCOUVER CANUCKS

2013: 26-15-7, 3rd in West (59 points)

• Goalie controversy theoretically has disappeared with Roberto Luongo the last man standing, but it’ll be fun watching John Tortorella make the Sedin twins block shots.

8. DALLAS STARS

2013: 22-22-4, 11th in West (48 points)

• Tyler Seguin has a lot to prove after being banished from Boston under much scrutiny, and look for big, talented Alex Chiasson to be given an important role.

9. EDMONTON OILERS

2013: 19-22-7, 12th in West (45 points)

• Lots of potential offense with Jordan Eberle, Justin Schultz, Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and newbie David Perron, but this is a tiny team.

10. COLORADO AVALANCHE

2013: 16-25-7, 15th in West (39 points)

• Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O’Reilly, No. 1 overall pick Nathan MacKinnon and the Avs’ other cast of forwards should pile up goals, but the blue line is lousy.

11. NASHVILLE PREDATORS

2013: 16-23-9, 14th in West (41 points)

• Can a healthy Pekka Rinne return to form behind a new cast including Matt Cullen, Viktor Stalberg, Matt Hendricks and future stud defenseman Seth Jones?

12. WINNIPEG JETS

2013: 24-21-3, 9th in East (51 points)
