4. New Jersey Devils
The Devils had an amazing season in 2022-23 going from a draft lottery favorite to a top team in the Metro Division and even winning a series. This season will be another good year for the Devils especially with so many young players stepping up.
3. Colorado Avalanche
Losing captain Gabriel Landeskog for another season due to injury is going to hurt the Avalanche, but the rest of the roster is healthy. Plus with the offseason additions of Ryan Johansen, Jonathan Drouin and Ross Colton this could be a top team in hockey once again.
2. Carolina Hurricanes
The Carolina Hurricanes have one of the best rosters in hockey, and they only got better adding Tony DeAngelo, Dmitry Orlov and Michael Bunting
This season the Hurricanes have all the skill once again to win yet another Metropolitan Division title, but what really matters for this team has to be winning in the postseason.
1. Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights won the Stanley Cup and will be having a banner ceremony in the coming weeks. This team might have said goodbye to fan favorite Reilly Smith in the offseason but overall the team that won the StanleyCup is still in tact. I think this could be another year of success in Las Vegas.
