A bit early I know, but the 06/07 season is around the corner...

Here are my predictions for the 6 Canadian Teams and the cup final.

1. Ottawa 105 pts
2. Calgary 92 pts
3. Vancouver 87 pts
4. Montreal 86 pts
5. Toronto 83 pts
6. Edmonton 80 pts

West Champion: Anaheim
East Champion: Buffalo

Stanley Cup Champion: Anaheim

Heh, I'm no statistician. I sit back on game night and yell and cheer like a maniac.

I predict I'm gonna have a blast. Beyond that, beats me...

I find it hard to go against Buffalo, given the radiometric regularity with with the ens meltdown in the playoffs. A pox on those chokers who raise my hopes every season! Pittsburg might just make it out of the basement this year. The Crosby/Malkin combination just may be able to morph into something like the Lemiux/Jagr magic of past years.

There has been some major shakeup. Jovanofski and Bertuzzi gone from Vancouver, Blake gone from Colorado, Luongo moved. Maybe what one should do is lay off some early bets on the long shots for the cup, you know the 800:1 and just see what happens at the end of the season. It is too tough to tell right now, ask again in November.

PS. Just thinking about the Sens, and their inevitable playoff choke of 2006/07 makes me angry.

No way Calgary beats Edmonton on points by the way. The only really safe prediction is that Toronto will eventually lose. The Make Beliefs are a cursed franchise, for whatever reason. Also, the winningest team in hockey history will once again not make the big game. Those pompous, arrogant fans will just have to wait, again.

I think Calgary will be the most successful of all the Canadian teams this year. With tanguay coming over, he & Iginla will make for a great combination, combine that with a fantastic defence corps & another strong year from Kipper & things should go quite well in Caglary

It'll be interesting to see what shakes out with the Canucks. They've finally got a decent goal tender (although Auld did wonders last year) and they got rid of the Surly One (Bertuzzi) but with such a shakeup at almost all levels, there's bound to be some growing pains.

Vancouver finally has an elite goalie, I think that they will beat the other teams in the West this year.

Have you guys noticed how playing in a tough division helps? Detroit looked unstoppable last year, right up until they had to play a quality team more than once in a row. Edmonton, coming out of what is arguably the toughest division in the NHL, had a good run up until they met the best in the East.
