2013 NHL Season Preview

Season Preview: 3 Questions from SB Nation

As part of our Red Wings season preview, the mothership asked us three big questions whose answers should have a big impact on the Red Wings this season. Read on for the answers.

Three big questions facing the Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks enter this season at a crossroads, leaving their ardent faithful hoping there is still time to pull it all together with this current core and their critics twiddling their sinister fingers waiting for their inevitable implosion.

Previewing the Pacific

Three teams managed to earn a playoff berth last season from the Pacific Division. One of which was the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. Can the Kings defend their crown?

Are Canucks still class of the Northwest?

Vancouver has dominated lately, but the upstart Oilers, young Avalanche, and retooled Wild would all like a say in this thing.

Southeast Division no longer South-least

Can the Panthers repeat, or will the retooled Capitals regain control of the division?

Can the Central send four to the playoffs again?

Once a top-heavy division, the Central now boasts three solid contenders, an upstart, and the most cursed franchise in the NHL.

Will Atlantic take another East title?

Traditionally one of the NHL's best divisions, can the Atlantic Division send four contestants to the playoffs again after beating each other up in a compressed lockout schedule?
