Fortune favors the bold—unless those bold moves fail to pan out, which is usually the case with bold moves. Boldness can result in fortune, but more often than not, it results in poverty and sadness, because it's rare that a bold prediction works out well.
Speaking of bold predictions not working out well, welcome to this slideshow.
It's August—a time when hockey isn't on the forefront of the minds of even the most dedicated hockey fans. People are on vacation, watching baseball or getting ready for the NFL season; they're hardly paying any attention to the NHL.
Which makes this the perfect time to run out 30 "bold" predictions, one for each NHL team.
Do I have 100 percent belief in every one of these predictions? Not really. It's tough to say which ones I feel the strongest about, but it's probably the ones that end up being correct at the end of the season, so I'll get back to you.
