NHL Season Predictions: Will The Colorado Avalanche Be Rolling?

Published

on

Colorado Avalanche
The 2021 NHL season is set to start in less than an hour but hey better late than never eh!
That may also be the theme for the Colorado Avalanche, who seemed to finally breakthrough and realize their potential. Two of the five National Hockey Now writers who responded with their predictions for the 56-game NHL season, picked the Avalanche to win the Stanley cup in this abbreviated season and Stanley Cup Playoffs. Ironically, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now never responded but we’re thinking he concurs?
The Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins, and Vegas Golden Knights were the other picks for Lord Stanley!
We’ve also got out East, West, Central, and North Division picks as well.
Three of the five NHN Puck scribes here picked the Philadelphia Flyers to win the East and the other two picked the Boston Bruins. The Tampa Bay Lightning were the unanimous pick for the Central Division; the Av’s got three picks for the West Division, as did the Toronto Maple Leafs in the North Division.
Sorry for the delay but we got them in just under the gun. Your 2021 NHN Season Predictions!

Bruins have about as much of a chance to make the playoffs with this line up as I do of becoming the next Bobby Orr! No improvements!
