Well the 2011 hockey season is here and its time for my predictions. Didn’t do so great last year but ill do much better this year as I read a hockey pool book and everyone knows you can’t go wrong with those.
First of all i want to say Sidney Crosby will be back By end of October. But i am very scared that he will be out again within a month.
Top point getter and Art Ross winner this year will once again be D Sedin. Guys to watch for this year Kopitar, Getzlaf and Mr consistent M Koivu.
Hart trophy most valuable player has to go to Steve Stamkos this guy should hit the 60 goal mark this year.
Vezina Trophy winner is a hard one. Luongo needs to win this to get the fans and players back on his side but i think the 3 top goalies will be Luongo, Fleury, and Miller with Miller being the winner.
Top defencemen my top 3 guys are good friend Shea Weber, Nik Lidstrom and fellow Canuck C. Ehrhoff who i think will have a great year. But Shea is the winner leading his team in scoring with 68 points.
So for top goal scores i would go with Stamkos 61, Ovechkin 50 Iginla 45, Corey Perry 43.
Now best team in the league wow this is hard. Canucks should be on top again this year with great years by Philly, Pittsburgh, Detroit and the two teams to look out for Buffalo and LA.
Players to grab this year in a hockey pool that i think will have crazy exciting years Mike Richards even though is screwed me in a signing he should be a stand out in LA. D Brassard if he can stay healthy this kid rocks. M Koivu he will be feeding Heatley this year and expect great Kings. Also thinking some old guy Jagr and Selanne will both break the 60 point mark again.
Rookie of the year Larson from the New Jersey Devils kid looks great. RNH will be sent back to the WHL this year.
Well that’s my picks. I have not won a pool in a while but i think i know some stuff. Enjoy the season.
