The Thursday Coffee Shop is a partner for today’s Daily Cup of Joe which offers an early assessment of the Metropolitan Division.
As many predicted before the start of the 2017-18 season, the Metropolitan Division is shaping up to be the NHL’s best. As of right now, both Eastern Conference wild cards would come from the Metropolitan and as of right now seven teams are clearly in the playoff mix.
Today’s polls and discussion will focus on the division competition.

Simple, open-ended questions on the Metropolitan Division today…
1) Who is legitimately good and will prove it over the full course of the long NHL season?
2) Who is not good and likely to miss the playoffs?
3) Assuming five teams will make the playoffs from the Metropolitan Division, which three (or maybe four) teams do you think the Hurricanes need to beat out?
