Hockey Season Predictions

There are many twists and turns in the hockey season, including injuries, streaks, chemistry, implosions, explosions, Shanahan, Bettman etc. I do not know who will finish on top at the end of the season, at least not a 'lock'; however, I would like to ask people to forward some predictions for end of year examination.

I'll start...

Edmonton will finish higher in the standings than Calgary.
Vancouver will exit the frst round of the playoffs
Two NHL teams will become insolvent and taken over by the league
There will be at least 50 suspensions issued by Shanahan
Bettman will not have his contract renewed at the end of the year

Cheers all...Go Bruins!
