NHL 2019-2020

Only one prediction...

The Leafs win the Cup.


Other thoughts:

New Jersey is likely going to have a bounce back year. And the Metro division looks like a lot of good, but not great teams.

Is the central still a beast of a division with no PK in Nashville, no Laine/Connor signed in Winnipeg....and fuck the Stars and Avalanche look better on paper. So yes?

Who wins the Pacific? Vegas? When do the folks in Edmonton get charged for the crime that is wasting McDavid?

Tampa. Boston. Toronto. Florida. Montreal. Do all five make the playoffs? If Buffalo gets goaltending do they edge out one of the other teams?

Also...Mitch Marner is STILL a Maple Leaf.

The Metro division is going to have the difference between first and last be 10 or less points for a good part of the season.

If the Jackets young goalies are as good as the front office thinks they are (or at least a good part), there won't be any drop off this season. But that is a big if.

Atlantic: Tampa, Boston, Toronto, Florida (Bob carries them to the playoffs)
Metro: Isles, Rangers, Jackets, Pens
Central: St. Louis, Nashville, Jets, Dallas, Colorado
Pacific: Vegas, Flames, San Jose

Jackets over Nashville in six.

I'm going to make a wild prediction:

The Florida Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in 7 games for the Stanley Cup and infuriate every hockey purist to point of genocide.

Not just the purists... since they are in the same division....

Maybe I should start following hockey before I make Cup predictions.

Tampa and Florida could meet in the ECF if one were to flip over to the other bracket via wildcard.

Yeah the Metro is going to be weird. Like any team could win the division, but also...is any team on there a lock to make the playoffs?

Another thing that came up recently....this summer is going to be a bad time to be a UFA. Pietrangelo, Faulk, Barrie, and Josi. Hall, Backstrom, Hoffman, and Schenn. That should be a stellar class. But do any of them have better options than re-upping with their current teams? Like, outside of Ottawa, any team with cap space this season has a bunch of RFA.

Yes, I knew that.

No, I didn't.

Nevertheless, I think the Panthers will be the surprise team of the NHL this season.
