How to Look Like an Idiot in 1 Year or Less

UPDATED: All our predictions are up, Trogdor showed off and I added a few more predictions from around the internerds.

Well, the pre-season prognosticators are getting out their guesses for the season, so I decided that I will compile a list of them where we can discuss/ridicule/cajole their predictions, make our own and have it all down on record for the end of the season where we can come back and see how very very wrong we are.

Here are the rankings as I find them. I will post more as they come to my attention.

ESPN
TSN
Sportsnet
Mirtle
Lowetide - Only a northwest preview but close enough for me.
Puck Daddy West and East
NHL on TSN Dudes – the other one is the power rankings guy
Oilers Nation’s predictions

I will force Racki and Trogdor to add their own predictions as well as mine in the near future.

    Added my predictions above.

  3. Hockey Noob says:

    DropIt, I honestly can’t turn off my Homer glasses when I try to predict the Oilers in the west, though If I could I would probably go with 9-11th. I still somehow see us in 8th this year with the homer glasses on, lol…

    As for Calgary, I think 3rd is pretty optimistic. I don’t see Calgary finishing ahead of the Nucks or Chicago, but we’ll see. Calgary needs a legit backup goalie about as bad as the Oilers likely do…

  4. Hockey Noob says:

    Hahah, I love the TSN predictions!!! Edmonton squeaks in with Calgary busting out the golf clubs…

    Calgary needs a legit starter too! (much like the Oilers. :P)

  6. DropIt says:

    I could see Edmonton in the playoffs, it could easily happen. I just see some stronger teams in my eyes.

    As for Calgary, 3rd-5th is where I expect. Chicago is a great, young team. But they are putting a lot of faith in Huet, who I just don’t have a lot of faith in at this time. And as for Vancouver, they are incredibly similar teams. Both good goaltending, as long as kipper can get off to a good start this year, the edge is obviously in Vancouvers favour. Defense, its hard to argue Calgary’s talent and depth on the back end. Calgary wins in that department. And offensively, both teams have some depth questions…
    How I look at it, the sisters vs. Iggy/OJ… Numbers will likely be very similar. Langkow is the better 2nd line centre of the teams. And should put up similar points to Sammuelson And both teams have 2-3 players that could hit mid 20’s in goals. Almost even in my mind on offense.
    Also remember the Canucks have that treacherous road stint surrounding the Olympics.

    I think its going to be a dog fight to the end like it was last season. But like you, I have a light tint of red in the glasses I wear :P

  7. DropIt says:

    Also Noob, I am a bit confused… I saw those prediction (and honestly was a bit taken back) but then I just watched the TSN pannel where they put Calgary at 5th….?

    Also, low blow Racki… ;)

    Hockey Noob: Hahah, I love the TSN predictions!!! Edmonton squeaks in with Calgary busting out the golf clubs…

    sadly on the TSN special earlier tonight they predicted the Oil at 11th

    time to prove those hacks wrong!

    Pretty much how I see it too. Nice job.

  16. Racki says:

    I don’t know why, but Chucker, your picks showed as spam at first, but I’ve approved them of course. But if any of you other guys post picks, and they don’t show up right away, don’t be too surprised… I’ll get them all approved within due time :P

  17. chucker says:

    Spam? I knew I hit the reply button and nothing happened. So I just quoted DropIt’s list and it got all cajumbled.

    OilersNation’s predictions have been added
