Another off-season is here, and I thought this would be a good way to start. This is something I first did last year-- a list of the biggest movers, points-wise in the league last year. Everybody that was +/- 10 points over 2014-2015 is listed. Buffalo +27 Arizona +22 Washington +19 Dallas +17 Carolina +15 Florida +12 Philadelphia +12 Tampa Bay -11 Rangers -12 Minnesota -13 Columbus -13 Ottawa -14 Calgary -20 Winnipeg -21 Vancouver -26 Montreal -28 This year's "Things That Make You Go 'Hmm...'" is the Toronto Maple Leafs. In their "tank" year this year, they improved by one point and went from 27th last year to 30th this year. Canada holds all five bottom spots for most points lost over last season, and the Leafs and Oilers stayed terrible. Oh, Canada indeed. The draft lottery isn't until April 30th; this will be the first year that the top three picks will all be done by lottery. I want the Leafs to be at least decent again, but I would also love to see the Canadian media lose their minds if Toronto picks 4th despite having the best odds. I believe no 30th place team has picked 1st overall since they started tinkering with the odds a few years ago.
