Remember?  Remember that?

It's hockey time again people and before we drop the puck I'm going out on a limb and make some predictions for the season.  I'm not going to sugar coat things.  I suck at predictions but I figured, why not?  It will be fun to look back on it.

Award Predictions

Connor McDavid will pick up the Hart, Art Ross, and Ted Lindsay.

Sergei Bobrovsky gets the Vezina.

Sasha Barkov gets the Selke.

The Norris will go to Erik Karlsson.

The Calder...that's a tougher one but I will say another Canuck...Elias Pettersson.

That's it.  That's all I'm picking.  We shall see how things turn out.

All hail the return of the greatest sport on earth!!
