THN makes 2006-07 predictions
The Hockey News's 2006-07 NHL Yearbook arrived in my mailbox this morning, and one of the many goodies packed inside was that crew's prediction for the coming season's standings.
THN didn't fare so well last time around, finishing only ahead of Sports Illustrated among the nine sets of picks compiled by Sisu Hockey throughout the year.
Even still, they're the first predictions in the bag, so that has to count for something.
- NY Rangers
- New Jersey
- Tampa Bay
- NY Islanders
- San Jose
- Los Angeles
- St. Louis
Well, there are certainly a few headscratchers in there, and I can't imagine fans in Colorado, Vancouver and Edmonton agree with these picks.
Me, I'm going to wait a good long while before I post my predictions. Let's just call that the benefit of the blog — no publishing deadlines.
The yearbook itself is excellent, by the way. I'm sure I'll be addressing a few of the items in there as I leaf through it over the next week or so, but you'd be well-advised to pick up your own copy (or even a subscription).
