Hockey fans-Predictions for 2012-13 season and playoffs?

East

1-Rangers

2-Pens (as much as it pains me to say this)

3-Flyers

4-Habs

5-Bruins

6-Sabres

7-Washington

8-Ottawa

9-New Jersey (barely missing a playoff spot, loses last game)

10-Canes

11-Lightning

12-Jets/Leafs

13-Leafs/Jets

14-Panthers/Islanders

15-Islanders/Panthers

West

1-Vancouver

2-Kings

3-Ducks

4-Chicago

5-Detroit

6-Minnesota (don't give me ****, devils fans)

7-Phoenix

8-San Jose

9-Nashville

10-Edmonton

11-Calgary

12-Dallas

13-Avalanche

14-Columbus BJs

15-I couldn't remember 15th western team

PLAYOFFS

NYR defeats Ottawa in 5, then Pens in 7, finally Flyers in 6.

MIN pulls off an upset, sweeps Ducks in 4. Knocks Chicago out in six, wins the CF against Kings in game 7 OT.

FINALS

3 main possibilities

NYR sweeps MIN in 4.

NYR wins in six/five

MIN wins in game 7 OT. Hey, the Kings were eighth seed last year, remember?

Your thoughts?

Only problem is, I live in New York City and love the Rangers. I grew up in Minnesota, though.

Update:

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot st Louis and forgot about the divisions. I've been stuck playing NHL 12. St. Louis goes in Ducks spot, ducks take 8th spot. Everybody below 8th spot western moves down. Kind of an idiot to forget about divisions.

Update 2:

I kind of doubt LA will be able to repeat, they didn't make any offseason moves and they're not really dynasty material.

Update 3:

Plus, Washington lost Semin (teehee) in free agency. I can see the Canes maybe taking Ottawa's spot. I don't think Washington will be the same level team as last year.

Update 4:

Phoenix making the playoffs depends whether they re-sign Doan. I'm thinking he might actually go to the Rangers, he's clearly interested. If Minnesota has the cap space, but I don't think they do, they should try signing him. Hopefully there isn't a lockout this season.

    Ok wow where do I start with this one. The odds of any team sweeping a team in the finals is like 15% at best. The 15th team in the west is st. louis and by the way they made the playoffs last year. So how you have them last is ridiculous and not in the top 8 is laughable. Another thing is the way you listed the teams can't happen either. The Pens, rangers, and flhyers are in the same division they can't go 1,2, and 3. If I have to guess the 8 in the east I would say

    1. Rangers (though it sickens me but I say this because of Lundqvist)

    2. Boston- I see another strong regular season but they will implode in the post season

    3. Florida- I don't think it was a fluke they were the third seed before

    4. Pittsburgh- as much as I want to think they will be the top seed it depends on the health of sid, and malkin and if voukon can spell fleury enough.

    5. Washington- I see washington making some improvement

    6. Phildelphia Flyers- it sickens me but they will still be in the top 8

    7. New Jersey Devils- With Brodeur back for another year and the young talent they will make it.

    8. Buffalo- I mean it is a little shocking but I see them in and unfortunately Ottawa is out at the end.

    Sorry no canadian teams make it from the east.

    In the west

    1. Vancouver- a dominant team in the regular season but falters in the playoffs

    2. Los Angeles- they won't take anyone by surprise

    3. St. Louis with their goaltending they will be a dominant team

    4. Detroit- They are a;ways near the top

    5. Phoenix- I think they will improve

    6. Nashville- despite the losses they are a tight defensive team with a great goaltender.

    7. Minnesota- they will make it with their talent but they are bottom 8 team this yeafr

    8. Chicago- they still have plenty of young talent like toews, and kane with a solid goaltender.

    sorry san jose it pains me to take you out of the top 8 but I have to this year.

    I see the Pens or New Jersey in the finals because of talent, and coaching

    In the west I see Los Angeles making it back.

    I want to believe it will be the Pens and Kings with Pens winning in 7 but it could be the Kings winning in 7. They both have physical great goal scorers, top defensemen that can play well on the power play, great goaltending, great coaching. I think it would come down to the more diciplined team.

    I live in Connecticut, have family in both Boston and New York. I'm a diehard Rangers and Bruins (Original Six) fan.

    So it's cool to like Minnesota and New York for similar reasons.

    I like your final prediction.
