Today we are continuing our series of taking a look at our fellow Central division rivals for the 2016-17 season. Once again the Central Division is being looked at as perhaps being the toughest in all of hockey with all seven teams (yes, even the Jets) being legitimate playoff threats.

Not every player is going to agree with the decisions their teammate or team management makes.  No matter what the players say to the media, it's not always going to truly reflect how they feel. It rarely ever does.

In one corner, we have Canada, a team that everybody expected to be here, with a suffocatingly high level of talent and execution of their system that has found a way to make greatness seem almost boring. In the other, we have Team Europe, a group of players who are old, wise, have never really played together, and may never play together again, looking to upset goliath on their own ice.
