  1. Solid NHL predictions for the 2022-23 season. I can see the Colorado Avalanche repeat as Stanley Cup champions.

    I do believe the Leafs win the Atlantic division and will lose in the second round to Florida or Tampa. Ottawa will make the playoffs.

    I see Edmonton making a long playoff run in the West. Calgary might squeak in as the 8th seed.

    Looking forward to the hockey season starting.
