Since Joe and James have weighed in... now it's my turn. Here are my predictions for the 2009-2010 season.
1 ) San Jose (PRESIDENTS [ONLY TO LOSE IN FIRST ROUND])
6) St. Louis
7) Los Angeles
This picks were made before the season started, so I'm not worried about Colorado winning the Northwest and yes, even after that awful performance against the Coyotes... I still think the Kings will make the playoffs.
STANLEY CUP FINALIST: Cal-gary. (In Barry Melrose voice)
6) New Jersey
7) New York Rangers
11) Tampa Bay
13) New York Islanders
The Flyers are going to be a force to reckon with this season and the first two games have shown that. Ovechkin is on pace to score 406 goals, so that means a top spot for the Capitals.
STANLEY CUP FINALIST: Philly.
THE WINNER: Philly.
