Making predictions is a love-hate thing. I sometimes think rolling a dice would produce more accurate results.
But it's still fun. A lot of fun.
So, here goes. This is my preseason – OK, early season – list of award winners. Let's debate them!
Auston Matthews stays healthy, flirts with 60 goals and brings the Rocket Richard trophy to Toronto. His shot is like no one else's.
Connor McDavid will nab the Art Ross and Hart trophies. Again. But he won't get to 120 points.
Joel Quenneville will get the Jack Adams as top coach. And his Panthers will scare the snot out of the big three in the East (Tampa Bay, Toronto, Boston).
The Canes will play the Bolts for the Eastern Conference Championship, but will come up short.
The Avs will take on the Golden Knights in the West and slay that dragon.
