10th Annual Regular Season Prediction Contest


Recommended Posts

10th 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.

2015-2016 edition


Same rules as last season.

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 shootout losses.

Entries due before puck drop on Wednesday Oct 7.

I like the team this year.

A) 49-26-5-2 (3 vs 3 should reduce SOL)

B) 2nd

C) 7th

D) 241 goals.

Pacioretty and subban have career years.

Markov drops down to 38-42 points

Bealieu replaces those points with a 25-30 point season

Galchenyuk puts up 60 points, 26 goals 34 assists.

Price nominated for vezina again but comes 2nd in voting behind holtby

Edit: meant to say 241 goals, I corrected it from 251.

I'm sure I'm in the minority but I don't think they will be as good. I just don't see how Price can have that kind of year back to back. Love the Petry addition, not sure where the offense is coming from.
