Settle in, because you'll have to wait an awful long time to see the results of your NHL predictions. You'll have some great hockey to tide you over, so it's not all that bad.
The Boston Bruins had a great run to win the Stanley Cup last season, but as this season begins anew, everything is up for grabs. The existing power structure might be maintained, or things could be turned all topsy-turvy.
Hockey's regular season takes ages to complete, with the Stanley Cup waiting in storage until next summer, but that's not going to stop us from asking SportsNation for its picks right this minute. Which team will win the Eastern Conference? Which team will prevail in the West? Which team will win it all?
Give us your votes on the new season!
