Summary

We asked nine NHL.com staff writers for their opinions on which team will be the best in the division this season. With Phil Kessel traded to the Arizona Coyotes, Alex Galchenyuk, Nick Bjugstad and Brandon Tanev will change the group's makeup positively, in my opinion.Video: Top 10 plays of 2018-19: Crosby Washington Capitals: With several key players approaching or past their 30th birthdays, the Capitals will be out to prove that they still have game in a division that features rising younger teams like the Carolina Hurricanes, Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers. Who is going to bet against a team led by Ovechkin, who scored an NHL-best 51 goals last season? Backstrom and goalie Braden Holtby each is in the final season of his contract, which will provide additional motivation.Video: Top 10 plays of 2018-19: Ovechkin Washington Capitals: There's no question the balance of power is on the verge of shifting in the division, and my answer might be different a year from now. Although the Rangers, Flyers and New Jersey Devils each made significant offseason moves to get better, and the Penguins still have two of the top five or six players in the NHL, there's no team in the division better than the Capitals. Look for young forwards Joel Farabee (2018 NHL Draft, No. 14) and Morgan Frost(2017 NHL Draft, No. 27) to also earn roster spots out of training camp.Video: Top five plays of 2018-19: Giroux Carolina Hurricanes: All fun and entertaining postgame celebrations aside, the Hurricanes had a nice team last season and will challenge for the division this season.
