Re: NHL 2013
What are everyone's predictions? Here are mine:
1. St. Louis
3. Tampa Bay
I see a Blues vs. Rangers Stanley Cup Final. Though it is sort of a homer pick on my part, the Blues are legit and there aren't any real weaknesses on the team. They added firepower by adding Vladimir Tarasenko making them 3 lines deep. I also feel that in this short lockout season, teams that have great goalie tandems are going to go far due to the ton of back to back games. Halak and Elliot were the best goalie tandem last year and I see that continuing. They're thin on the defense though as far as depth goes. If there is an injury to one of the defensive players, there will be a drop off in talent.
Speaking of defense, I have a feeling that Detroit is really going to suffer this year in that area. I still think they'll make the playoffs but I wouldn't be shocked if teams are scoring a ton on Detroit this year.
