The NHL season is set to start in just about a month so let’s take a look at how the teams in the Metropolitan Division will stack up.

By Ernie DeFalco

The Metropolitan division saw four teams qualify for the National Hockey League playoffs last season.  The Met hopes to continue that dominance of the Atlantic Conference.

And it just might.

For 2015-16 there might be five teams who have a legitimate shot to make it out of the Met this year. This includes the Presidents’ Trophy winning New York Rangers and the ultra surprising New York Islanders from a season ago.

So lets see how those teams stack up against each other for Metropolitan Division dominance.

Administrator of New York Hockey Discussion Group, IT Professor by day, and lifelong Rangers, Mets and Jets fan by night. If he had to pick one, the Rangers would top the list. Second on the list would be the always loveable NY Mets. If he could spend all summer sitting by a pool, girly drink in hand, music playing and the Mets on TV, he would be a very happy man.
