2021-22 Atlantic Division Preview
Alex and Chace are back and are getting ready for a new season. Already somehow in September, the guys are starting their yearly division previews. Today, they start with a 2021-22 Atlantic Division Preview. The guys break things down into four tiers where they then rank each team in that respective tier.
Starting with the “bad”, these are teams with no hope for success this year and frankly, everyone should expect to be bad. Alex and Chace both have two teams slotted here as they examine what is a very bleak outlook for one of them specifically. After, they go to the middle or bubble tier where it’s teams that probably shouldn’t be expected to be lottery favourites, but aren’t playoff contenders either.
Next, they look at wildcard teams. These are teams that have a very outside chance at making a top-three divisional spot but are a good bet to be on that playoff bubble contending for a wild card. Finally, they have the top three tiers. Ironically, four teams in this division fit that. However, this tier is for the teams that have a legit shot at the division title. If not that, for sure a top-three spot in the division.
Who are Alex and Chace? Alex and Chace are both from the Waterloo region in Ontario, Canada. Both of them grew up playing hockey and shortly after fell in love with analyzing it. Chace is a noted Leafs and Penguins fan, while Alex is a die-hard Senators fan. You can find Alex’s work at LastWordOnHockey.com and milehighhockey.com.
