7th 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. Posted Image

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.

 

 

2011-2012 sakiqc

 Our fearless leader won with his prediction of 37-34-11 for 85 points.
The Habs record was 31-35-16 for 78 points.

Honourable mention went to Habsfan who correctly predicted that the Habs would score 212 goals.



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

2013-2013 edition

There will be a 48 game season. 

 

Predict
a) what the Habs regular season record will be
b) in what place in the East the Habs will finish
c) the total number of goals the Habs will score this season (including 1 goal per shootout win).


1 point will be awarded for getting the correct number of wins.
1 point will be awarded for getting the correct number of loses.
1 point will be awarded for getting the correct number of OT loses.
2 bonus points for getting the entire record correct.
6 points will be awarded for getting the Habs final point total correct

     (3 pts for being exactly 1 off of the correct answer)

     (1 point for being exactly 2 off the correct answer)

1 point for correctly predicting the Habs finish in the East.

The total number of goals the Habs will score will be used as a tiebreaker, if necessary.

Make you predictions before the beginning of Saturday's season opener against the leafs.

Good Luck.

Go Habs Go!

 

Merci.

I think the Habs will surprise a lot of people. I like them to finish second in the North East behind Boston. 

 

27-16-5 = 59 points

6th in the East

140 Goals for

136 Goals against

 

Subban will have a monster year as long as contract negotiations don't get in the way.

Last season I was really optimistic and we all know what happened.   :wall:  Sooo...this year I have tempered my expectations. Also, if PK is unsigned for a long period bad things will happen and the playoffs will be missed again.

As long as they get at least 13 points in the next 18 games, I have it locked up. Not too bad after my second place finish in the contest last year. I'm also liking my Subban prediction so far.

Nicely done CHL Star...  I'm happy to be wrong in favour of our beloved Canadiens.  Lets just hope they can keep it together and keep putting three and four games streaks...  :)  GO HABS GO!

  Congratulations, although they barely got those 13 points in the last 18 games.
