8th Annual Season Prediction Contest


Recommended Posts

8th Annual HabsWorld season prediction contest.

Hall of Fame:

2006-2007 Jean won with a prediction of 92 points when the Habs finished the year with 90 pts. If only we could have won that last game.

2007-2008 Adirondack Bud exactly predicted our final total of 104 pts.

2008-2009 Zowpeb won by predicting a strong start followed by a slower 2nd half ending with 99 points. The Habs finished the season in 8th place with 93 points. On September 22, 2008 Zowpeb predicted "I think we'll see a rough patch just past the mid-year point..." Wow!

2009-2010 Joelassister correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 88 points.

Honourable mention to kaos who predicted a season record of 39-34-9 (87 pts) while the Habs finished 39-33-10.

2010-2011 Chips produced the all time best prediction. His preseason prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts 6th in the East, 14th in the NHL was exactly correct in every aspect. That amazing feat will be hard to duplicate.

Honourable mentions went to Seb whose excellent prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts. 5th in east, 13th in NHL came up just short; and to Peter Puck who also correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 96 points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2013-2014 edition

Predict
a) what the Habs regular season record will be: wins-losses-OTL-SOL
b) in what place in the Atlantic Division the Habs will finish

c) in what place in the league the Habs will finish
d) the total number of goals the Habs will score this season (including 1 goal per shootout win).

The winner will be based upon the most accurate prediction of the Habs final points, then most accurate record prediction. The latter three predictions will be used successively to break ties.

Don't forget to separate overtime losses and shoutout losses.

Good Luck!

Now that's optimism. I hope all of this comes true except the Leafs, Gionta, Alfredson (a bust would be better for us) and the Oilers ( I still hate them for 1980s that time when they eliminated us... the mind forgets the date but the hatred still burns). Note the crucial edit to the original prediction for the end of season

win in 6

win in 5

win in 7

lose in 6

This is both the most optimistic and pessimistic prediction of the bunch. If you're correct then I and roughly a million other fans will have taken a year or two off our lives due to stress and liver damage, and all for heartbreak at the end.

Well only one game left and it will decide who wins the prediction contest.

The Habs currently have a record of 45-28-5-3 for 98 points and sit 3rd in the Atlantic Division and 10th in the league.

We will finish either 2nd or 3rd in the division and anywhere from 8th to 11th in the league.

This year's predictions were especially good with 7 (out of 18) HW members predicting either 98, 99 or 100 points.

If the Habs win tonight they will finish with 100 points.

Meller93, thehabbit and nhfarber all predicted 100 points. But any type of win tonight will mean that thehabbit's predicted season record

of 46-28-5-3 is exactly correct.

If the habs gain only 1 point tongiht, our winner will be Neech who is the only one to predict 99 points.

Another loss means the Habs will finish with 98 points, a total predicted by Habsfan84, Chips and *Peter Puck*.

Either Habsfan84 or Chips will win if they Habs finish at 98. The winner will depend on where the Habs finish in the leaguewide standings.

Habsfan84 predicted 11th and Chips predicted 8th. Whichever of these predictions is closer will win.

Good luck.

P.P.
