    Forgot to make other predictions, so I'll put them all in one place.
    • The Devils and Avs will both return to the playoffs.
    • The Blue Jackets will implode spectacularly and early. Panarin will be shipped off by the trade deadline. Tortorella will lose his job at the end of the year. With all that said, they'll still finish sixth in the Metro above the Rangers and Islanders.
    • The Ducks will fall off a cliff and finish seventh in the Pacific, only ahead of the Canucks.
    • The Golden Dawn... er, Knights will have regression from Karlsson and Fleury, and their defense will be legitimately bad. But given how weak the Pacific is as well as their two additions at center, they'll still make the playoffs. They'll finish second with a sizable gap between them and the Sharks.
    • Five teams will make the playoffs from the Central and the Wild won't be one of them.
    • The Blackhawks will be a bottom five team and will be rewarded for it with the first overall pick.
    • Jets over Maple Leafs in the Cup Finals.

    Thought this would be a fun thread.. here are mine

    1. Leafs lose first 5 games and end Oct with a losing record
    2. Senators Win/Loss record for Oct is 50% (This is bold because many have them winning far fewer :D)
    3. Panthers will have the best record in October

    So what are yours?

    I was being incredibly optimistic with this prediction but it actually might be pretty spot on.

    6GP, 5 points, -5.

    marchand wins the scoring title but still wont get any main stream press as the best player in the game... oops I guess that wasn't a very bold prediction after all

    lets put pastrnak as becoming a rival to Matthews/McKinnon/McDavid for best young player in the game by the time the season is over

    as the 1/3rd mark approaches... marchand has been rather pedestrian this year. im officially going to have to call an end to my campaign to promote him as a legit mvp. that said, he had an 18 month period of time there he deserved the praise

    now all eyes turn to pastrnak. how good will this kid get? we feel in boston there must be something wrong with his wrist the past couple weeks. or is he missing Bergeron that much?

    this might be one of the funnest rocket Richard races in recent memory though if he and laine can stay healthy. its too bad Matthews missed so many games and pedersson out of Vancouver too... love seeing these kids rip their shots off and just overpower goalies with such lightening quick releases

    my new bold prediction for the remainder of the year... halak builds a case to get vezina voting by the time the year is finished. I don't see this being a flash in the pan for him. this bruin team plays amazing defense in front of its goalies and halak has a better mind set to benefit from it than rask ever did.

    another bold prediction is boston WILL make a deal to bring in a new 5-6-7 mill dollar a year forward before playoffs roll around. this team is 1 impact forward away from being a legit cup contender and after going hard on Tavares and kovalchuk in preseason I think theres an appetite in the bruin front office to grab a big ticket player as soon as one becomes available

    Well, definitely right on the account of St Louis disappointing to start the year. Though they seem to be rounding into a playoff position at this rate (the West as a whole looks terrible though, so that's not necessarily saying much).

    ROR has been the Blues best player most nights, occasionally being outdone by goaltenders standing on their heads. 20G-35A-55P in 54 games looks damn good considering how bad the Blues were to start the season.

    Evander Kane is 26G-23A-49P in 57 games. I think he's hard pressed not to break 30G at this point, though 70P could be out of reach. That's exactly what he's on pace for right now, but Kane is streaky as f***.

    All in all, pretty accurate predictions looking back on them! Though, I really hope to see the Blues keep up this tear they've been on since January and make the playoffs, dispelling this ROR cancer talk. Seriously, he's been nothing short of exemplary for St Louis this year.

    Oof I did really baddd. At least I was right about the Devils finishing as a bottom 5 team in the league. At least I assume they'll stay there. That was easy to predict tho

    Monahan is on a pace for 40.25 goals.
    Lindholm is on a pace for 55.16 goals.

    Pretty good picks.

    you said 45+ A's for Lindy, not goals, can i still make this type of prediction, Flames vs Leafs in the finals, game 7 triple OT, Brodie with the game winner with 3 minutes and 41 seconds left
