    Not only will a Canadian team win Lord Stanley's Cup, two Canadian teams will fight in the finals for it. ;)

    Leafs and jets obviously.

    Marner finishes top 3 in league scoring is my bold prediction.

    I can’t think of much that isn’t completely ridiculous but maybe kopitar with kovalchuk wins the Ross

    I haven’t seen kovalchuck play other than the odd khl highlight but if he is anything close to what he was it could happen I doubt he is worse than brown and whatever still works in gaboriks body

    I was thinking Ottawa/Vancouver but your picks are OK :nod:

    Oh, and unless Tkachuk gets traded to the Leafs there's zero chance Marner is a top scorer even in the top 10. ;)

    Idk if id bet on the second thing Tavares pretty much makes people’s careers like bailey was close to ppg last year and marner had 69. The guy deserves most of a couple guys contracts I would bet on the first two because the odds must be like golden knights odds

    Galchenyuk snipes 40 goals in Arizona, Domi doesn't even hit 40 points and that is the final straw for Bergevin and he gets canned

    Rnh finishes top 10 in goals if he plays the whole year on mcdavids wing. He has one of the most underrated shots in the game.

    Hanifin has a coming out party. Scores ~50 points and plays well in his own end.

    Philly finishes 1st in the east.

    Would-be Fun: Andrei Svechnikov scores a hat-trick against Buffalo in the first head-to-head match-up with Dahlin. Rasmus is on the ice for all 3 goals against.

    Most Likely: Filip Zadina scores at least 1 goal in every game he plays against Montreal and Ottawa.

    Least Likely: Michael Rasmussen scores 50+ points and is one of the 3 finalists for the Calder Trophy.

    Eichel stays healthly and goes PPG also leads the sabres to a wildcard spot

    Pettersson goes PPG and wins Calder

    Dahlin is used "only" as a top 4 defenceman in his rookie year

    He has a history of making 30 point guys put up 50 points, but not of making 70 point guys put up 90.

    And Bailey wasn't carried last year like a Moulson or a Parenteau, there were plenty of times last year where he was the best guy on that line. It's so weird to think that Josh, who was a giant whipping boy for so long, will probably end up being one of the most loved Islanders ever while you know who will go down as the most hated and despised.

    My bold prediction is that none of these bold predictions come true.
