<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Mr_Gardoki</b></div><div>The Isles are such a weird team to gauge. On paper, they're a playoff team. Sorokin is top-five goalie in the league. They have some good dmen. They obviously have some quality forwards. If they sign Kadri, how much does that change things?

If the Isles are a similar team to last year? Then yes, I think OTT and DET will be better.</div></div>

I’m assuming they will sign Kadri but even if they don’t I don’t agree Ottawa and Detroit are better. As you said Sorokin is one of the best and significantly better than the goalie tandems Ottawa and Detroit have. That alone is a major factor. A team just won the cup with mediocre goaltending but that was the exception not the rule. The Avs had basically a perfect team as far as forward and Dman go because I’ve never seen a team manage the cap like Colorado did. There’s no way a team should be able to pay Mackinnon, Makar, Rantanen, Kadri, Landeskog, Nichhuskin, Lehtoken, Toews, Burakovsky, and Manson. Basically Mackinnon being the most underpaid player in the league not on an ELC win them that cup.

What I’m saying is goaltending wins. It’s why Tampa has been dominating. It’s why the Rangers are ahead of schedule and it’s why the Isles absolutely can be a playoff team with a little luck on their side. Also, let’s not forget they had a horrendous start last year and had like the longest road game streak in modern history before that arena opened. It was a weird season for them
