With the official opening of training camps about a week away, I've been working on preview material for the new season (I had a few deadlines for ESPN The Magazine's NHL preview issue, which is thematically being called "The Ice Issue").

Over the next few blog entries, I thought I'd take a quickie look at each division, giving you a best and worst about each club.

I'm going to start with the Southeast Division; we've also done that division fully in "Summer Skate," the series I'm working on with Puck Prospectus. You can find all the "Summer Skate" entries to date here.
