2010 Prediction Wrap Up
Okay let’s package the fucker up…
Western Conference Finals – San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings
I don’t know why, but that’s what I got. I think everyone’s given up on the Sharks, and that’s probably exactly what they needed. I think the Kings are going to surprise a lot of people, but just come up short, putting San Jose as the West representative. A more likely situation will have the Kings advancing a round further that last season, and the Sharks bowing out to Vancouver. I just can’t put the Canucks in there, I want them in there so badly, that I think its clouding my judgment, so I’m keeping them out.
Eastern Conference Finals – Washington Capitals vs. Philadelphia Flyers
I like this matchup, but I see Philly taking it, and the eventual prize as well. Frustration ensues for the Red Russians.
Stanley Cup Finals – San Jose Sharks vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Its anyone’s guess as to who would win this one, but given the Sharks record, and Philadelphia’s bitter defeat last season, its easy to see the Flyers taking it. Now watch they’ll both be out in the first round.
Stanley Cup goes to... Philadelphia with big props to Peter Laviolette, Mike Richards, Chris Pronger, and some goalie who we’ve never heard of before. Claude Giroux to snatch the Conn Smythe with a huge playoffs.
Hart goes to… Joe Thornton. Points race too. Oh shit I blew the surprise.
Art Ross… Joe Thornton. It is a contract year folks.
Vezina… I think this year it will finally go to Luongo, but some young upstart like Bernier will probably chase him.
Speaking of young upstarts, the Calder will go to… Is Bernier even eligible, I’ll give him my vote.
Selke… Mike Richards, I’m starting to get predictable in my picks. Datsyuk will have an injury-filled year, and Kesler will just miss once again.
Norris… Drew Doughty runs away with it. Duncan Keith’ll give ‘em a fight to hold on to it though.
Jack Adams… Terry Murray gets kudos for getting the Kings to where they are towards the end of the season.
Presidents Trophy once again goes to Washington. Easy conference.
That’s it, I’m available for hire to entertain at parties, or any other events where a good laugh is needed. We're cranking it back up again over here, I just can't quit you, you dumb, fucking game. Managed to scrounge up enough change to get Center Ice hooked up again. Best spot to panhandle... Freeway off ramps.
Enjoy the season, you big, dumb animals.
