The good and the bad of a short season like this is that if you start out strong, you'll likely make the playoffs. To that end, a shitty team that starts strong could hold on and get a playoff run (Leafs fans, I'm looking at you).

I can't make any predictions right now about the Hawks except they play 10 of their first 12 on the road, and they really need to go at least 6-6 to stay in the picture, IMO. Less than that, and they have to play catch-up for the next 36 games, and that never works very well for anyone with the OT points involved, never mind everything is inter-conference this year. Stealing points later will be almost impossible.

Should be interesting.
