Shock the Monkey

Maggie the Monkey is back with her picks, and this year she's really heavy on the favourites: Detroit, Minnesota, Vancouver, Nashville, Buffalo, New Jersey, Atlanta and Pittsburgh.

I'm not ashamed to admit she bested me last year, going 9-6 in what was a pretty topsy-turvy ride for the Edmonton Oilers to the finals. I went 8-7 last year, including a 1-3 record in series the Oilers took part in (the only one I got right was the second-round win over San Jose).

My only truly redeeming pick last year, actually, was picking the sixth-seeded Anaheim Ducks to make it all the way to the conference finals.

In short, predictions are hard. Mine will be up in this space Wednesday morning.

I too was 1-3 in Edmonton's run for the cup...

Shows how much confidence I had in them.
