NHL Predictions

Here are PuckMePlease.com’s early 2015 – 16 NHL regular season and playoff predictions.

The Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres are getting close to being playoff contenders but I feel they are not there yet. The Boston Bruins will miss the playoffs again and the Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings will fight for the last wild card spot. Right now I have Detroit getting in, but Columbus will be right there.

Arizona, Toronto, New Jersey and Carolina will fight for the worst record overall and have the greatest chance to draft Austin Matthews in the 2016 entry draft.

(WC) = Wild Card Team
(MP) = Misses Playoffs
