Which Team Won’t Be Back?

The NHL’s 2010-11 season is now over, with the Boston Bruins crowned as Stanley Cup Champions.

For those ready to turn the page and look ahead, let’s talk about the Western Conference standings.

Every year there is a certain amount of turnover within the eight teams qualifying for the post-season. For example, last season, four ‘new’ teams made it in the West compared to the 2008-09 campaign.

However, this season, only one team didn’t return – Colorado was replaced in the pack by Anaheim.

So, of the eight Western teams that took a shot at the Cup this year, which do you think is most likely to have a drop off…and not return to the playoffs next season?



Results will be posted Monday.
