Let's Make Some 2008-2009 Season Predictions: Part Two

Today I feel like guessing the Western Conference standings. Last year I did quite exceptionally well with my guesses, in that I correctly guessed every playoff team and had 5 out of 8 in the right position. I'll give another crack at it, with only hopes of coming as close as last year.

My Western Conference 2008-2009 season standings predictions:

1. Detroit
2. Dallas
3. Calgary
4. San Jose
5. Anaheim
6. Vancouver
7. Chicago
8. Edmonton

9. Phoenix
10. Minnesota
11. Colorado
12. Columbus
13. Los Angeles
14. St. Louis
15. Nashville

Nashville last? Yep. I said it. I expect big flops from Minn, Col and Nashville because of lost personnel, plus deadline deals which have the future in mind over the present. The Tavares (or Schenn or Hedman or whoever) Sweepstakes are a little bit more crowded then some might think!

Let's Make Some 2008-2009 Season Predictions

I will be doing a few of these leading up to the NHL season. In this post, I'm going to give my projected standings for both the Eastern and Western conferences.

Without further ado, the Eastern Conference:

1. Pittsburgh Penguins
2. Washington Capitals
3. Montreal Canadiens
4. Philadelphia Flyers
5. New York Rangers
6. Carolina Hurricanes
7. Ottawa Senators
8. Tampa Bay Lightning

9. Boston Bruins
10. Florida Panthers
11. New Jersey Devils
12. Atlanta Thrashers
13. Toronto Maple Leafs
14. Buffalo Sabres
15. New York Islanders

Tampa in the playoffs? Buffalo second last? You heard it here first. Probably.

Stay tuned for my next edition in which I will predict the Western conference standings for 2008-2009.
