Ok this happens every year now apparently. Last year it was London this year Prague, but why the hell does Hockey start the first week of October? Anyway here are the wonderful predictions from someone who maky watch 5 regular season hockey games this year. Now with new and improved records so I can evaluate to the point how wrong I was.
NHL West Standings
West Conference Finals
San Jose Sharks over the Detroit Red Wings - Because enough with Detroit's dominance of all things Hockey.
NHL East Standings
East Conference Finals
New York Rangers over the Pittsburgh Penguins - We're going NYC overly Pittsburgh because the Giants won the Superbowl.
Stanley Cup Finals
New York Rangers over San Jose Sharks - Jagr will bring the Ewing theory to hockey because without him the Rangers win the cup.
There's way too many awards in the NHL, so obviously I'm not going to do them all...
Adams - Gordon Bombay, is their any doubt he's going to be the best coach in the league, give me an f'n break. (Perennial Pick)
Calder - Candace Parker
Hart - Who's got Hart? The one female in the NHL of course. Sydney Crosby. (Perennial Pick)
Norris - Named after Chuck for being bad ass. Sean Avery because dude gets the ladies and is annoying as hell.
Pearson - Alexander Ovechkin, he scores a lot.
Lady Byng - Someone I will lose respect for. Awarded for Sportsmanship? It's Hockey there should be none of that. I'd imagine this goes to someone on a loser team. So we'll go with someone on the Maple Leafs. Mats Sundin sounds good.
Vezina - Henrik Lundquist es un swedish pimp from Club Vandersexxx. (Perennial Pick until he wins)
