21. Boston Bruins

Previous: No. 25

Expectation bar: Matched

There’s little to be excited about with this group now that Brad Marchand is on injured reserve. The defense is a near-retired Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and a bunch of question marks. Patrice Bergeron isn’t going to give you 90 points. David Pastrnak isn’t either. But one point out of a playoff spot in the weak Atlantic? Seems fair.
