Who's ready for another great season of hockey? I am!
Last season, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup in an exciting seven-game upset over the Vancouver Canucks.
Despite another season just starting, it's never too early to make some predictions on who will compete for the ultimate prize.
There are many great teams out there, and it should be really exciting to see who may end up on top this year.
Hockey is one of the most exciting sports, and out of 30 teams, 16 of them make the playoffs—eight from each conference.
In the first eight slides, I'll go over my predictions for who I think the eight teams will be to compete in the Eastern Conference. In the last eight, I'll pick my choices for the Western.
Just a note, I won't be going in order with the seeds, so don't be surprised if you see a team like the Canucks in the 15th slide.
