The following is my Draft review for teams based in the East. With no formal conference names given yet, for the sake of simplicity, we will take the two most Eastern-based conferences from the NHL's realignment and call them the Eastern teams for now.
Players who I did not have info on are omitted from the following analysis sections. I may have gotten information on players following the publishing of my top 250, so the lack of a ranking does not always mean I don't value a player. A re-entry like Alan Quine, originally drafted by Detroit, also would not have been ranked.
