✔ 1. McDavid wins the scoring race
✘ 2. The Vancouver Canucks finish dead last in the standings
✘ 3. The Colorado Avalanche become corsi Gods en route to Central Division crown
✘ 4. The Buffalo Sabres finish as New York’s best team
✘ 5. The Arizona Coyotes make the playoffs and GM John Chayka gets named executive of the year
✘ 6. P.K. Subban will score a hat trick in his return to Montreal
✘ 7. Jonathan Drouin leads the Tampa Bay Lightning in scoring
✔ / ✘ 8. The Lightning will trade goaltender Ben Bishop and win the Stanley Cup
✘ 9. Phil Kessel scores 40 goals for the first time in his career
✘ 10. Pierre-Luc Dubois will win the Calder Trophy

In that particular article, the writer qualifies these as his most 'bold' and acknowledges that they're almost assuredly going to be wrong.

To be fair, like most "bold predictions" the column is just random guesses about unlikely things they don't think will actually happen.

Willie is a good coach, but he's the wrong coach for a young team. I hope he gets a job elsewhere but he might be done in the NHL

Who's out there? Ruff, Crawford, Sutter (soon), Hitchcock, Muller...

Jets fans can be legitimately disappointed. I really thought they had the core players to make the playoffs. They just lack the depth, especially defensively. A full healthy year from Trouba would have helped but there still would have been a problem keeping the puck out of the net. Not an easy problem to fix, but there's still that core to build around.

#NHLJets participants at #IIHFWorlds:

Scheifele, Morrissey (Canada)
Copp, Trouba, Hellebuyck (USA)
Ehlers (Denmark)

Laine will not play.

Glad Laine won't play, normally you love a young player to get that sort of development in a season without playoffs but he's played a LOT of hockey in the past year.

He may also be salty at Draisaitl costing him a 2 mill bonus on the last day of the season lol. You know that has to sting for a guy his age on an ELC. Hell that would probably sting for a guy who's already made tens of millions. ;)

If only Lando had this attitude. Instead he seems complacent most of the time.

Meh, nobody gives a shit about awards a day after they're given out.


Also I need you alert and focused on the here and now - I've started watching Bordertown on Netflix and I may have some questions for you.

First of all, does everyone call this guy Finnish Jake Gyllenhaal? Because they probably should.

Not sure if posted, but all new Adidas jerseys might be unveiled during the draft in June for each team.

Minnesota specifically might be wearing something similar to their Stadium Series jersey, which isn't a bad place to start a design. I'd lose the collar on the Stadium Series jersey and swap it for something similar to the current v-neck template that most teams have. But if the World Cup jerseys are to go by, this might be the standard.
