Settle in, because it's going to be a long wait to see if your NHL predictions come true. At least you'll have some exciting hockey to keep you company.
The Chicago Blackhawks had a great run to win the Stanley Cup last season, but as this season begins anew, it's a whole new contest, with no certainties. Will the power status quo be maintained? Or will things change dramatically?
Hockey's regular season is one of the longer marathons in pro sports, but that's not stopping us from asking SportsNation to dust off their crystal balls and gaze toward next summer. Who will win the Eastern Conference? Who will prevail in the West? Which team will win it all?
Give us your votes on the new season!
