It's that time of year again where I throw out five predictions and probably get every single one of them wrong. This will be year three of these annual posts and my record is slowly getting better. In 2011-2012, I was 1/5, hitting on Tyler Seguin scoring 25+ goals. Last season, I'm going to say I was 2/5. Here were my predictions:
1. Tuukka Rask will win the Vezina Trophy
2. Boston doesn't win the Northeast Division
3. Tyler Seguin ends up Top 10 in goals scored in the NHL
4. Dougie Hamilton doesn't live up to his ridiculous expectations put on him by the fans
5. David Krejci gets traded
I was dead on with my second prediction as Montreal won the Northeast. Of course, I picked the Sabres to win it, but hey I was half right. I will also give myself credit for the Dougie Hamilton prediction because some of the shit coming off of Twitter and the media was fucking mind blowing. People were on their knees ready to annoint this kid the next Bobby Orr because of how he played in the OHL. In the end, he had himself a nice rookie season and is already making waves during training camp in a longer sophomore season. The question is if he can hold up.
The rest of them? Woof. While Tuukka Rask had a Vezina Trophy-like season, he wasn't even nominated for the award. What a joke. Tyler Seguin sucked more than Tammy Horton at a Tyler Seguin convention and David Krejci stuck his league leading 26 playoff points up my ass. Embarrassing.
