NHL Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions

Yes, I know what youre thinking…”Walsh the season hasn’t even started yet how the hell can you make your Stanley Cup predictions?!?!” Well last year when I was writing for my own blog I did just one giant NHL preview blog instead of the division ones like I did this year and guess what…I ended up picking the Stanley Cup Final correctly. Don’t believe me? Here is picture evidence and the link to the old blog to prove it…https://www.gingerthread.com/post/nhl-season-preview

This season is going to be weird, we have 56 games and they all will be against division opponents. More than likely there will end up being some big names that might miss games due to COVID. Hopefully that doesn’t happen but at this rate it just seems inevitable. So while the regular season is going to be weird, that should make for some interesting playoff races. We have the top four teams from each division making the playoffs which also means we may have some good teams end up missing out on the playoffs. So if you read all of my division preview blogs you probably already know who my playoff teams are. But just because you know who I think is making the playoffs doesn’t mean you know who I am taking to win the cup…So lets get to it.
