    Since this website loves premature overreactions and predictions, I figure why not create another opportunity for everyone to subject themselves to future ridicule with hot takes that may or may not pan out!

    We're just over 10% into the season (133 games played out of 1,271) - so who do you expect to still be playing in late May / early June? Looking for CF and SCF matchups and winners.

    I'll go first:
    ECF: Bruins over Devils
    WCF: Sharks over Avalanche

    SCF: Bruins over Sharks

    This isn't early considering most predictions were done weeks ago.

    Vegas will lose every game from here on out and the league will fold them.

    McDavid will make a run at 150 points. Half-serious.

    Leafs are the only Canadian team to make the playoffs.

    And:

    ECF: Leafs over Pens
    WCF: NSH over SJ

    SCF: Leafs beat the Preds.

    I predicted that the Canucks would make the playoffs before the season started and got laughed at.

    Isn't their goal differential only +1? Bit too early to be feeling vindicated.

    Not saying it is going to happen, but I do feel like that roster is good enough for the playoffs. I also said Vegas wins the Pacific again, and I think that can still happen.
