It's prediction time. The official SBNation preview (wish I was cool enough to link it here but I'm not) has us finishing 6th in the Metro. I've seen the CBJ anywhere from 3rd to 8th in many of these predictions. Now it's time for you to put your reputation on the line. Once you hit "send" (or "post," whatever.) it will be here for us to look back in April and see how smart you really are.
Here are mine:
The Jackets finish 3rd in the Metro and get to 99 points (I should have probably done some math on this as last year's shortened season has thrown me off). The 99 points might be low, but either way I'm predicting a 3rd-place finish.
Gaborik gets to 40 goals. Bob doesn't repeat as Vezina, but still has a stellar 2.2 GAA. RyJo hits the 40 point mark for the season and Atkinson pours in 25+ goals.
What say you? Any post-season awards predictions? A playoff series win perhaps? Sound off and find out how close you were to reality in six months.
