Back on October second, we kicked off the season with the first-ever round of OBG's pre-season predictions, giving a look at what the final standings might look like.

However, the second part of these "pre-season" predictions—the playoff predictions—didn't come soon enough after the first part to make it in before the Flyers and Penguins began the season; in fact, they're just coming now, a good two weeks into the season.

That being the case, we're going to keep them short and sweet, as we've already briefly run down each team's outlook. More detailed discussion of these picks may come later, but for now, here are your First Annual OBG "Pre-Season" Playoff Predictions...
