I'm going to go all out and predict the final season standings, along with playoff match-ups, the winners and the losers of said playoff match-ups, and my predicted Stanley Cup winner and runner-up. My predictions are based on current streaks and plays, team injuries (key players being out), playoff history and my overall opinion.

Final season standings:

Eastern Conference

1) Washington Capitals*(P)

2) Pittsburgh Penguins*

3) Buffalo Sabres*

4) New Jersey Devils

5) Ottawa Senators

6) Philadelphia Flyers

7) Montreal Canadiens

8) Boston Bruins

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

9) New York Rangers

10) Atlanta Thrashers

11) Tampa Bay Lightening

12) Florida Panthers

13) Carolina Hurricanes

14)New York Islanders

15) Toronto Maple Leafs

Western Conference

1) San Jose Sharks*

2) Chicago Blackhawks*

3) Vancouver Canucks*

4) Phoenix Coyotes

5) Los Angeles Kings

6) Colorado Avalanche

7) Nashville Predators

8) Detroit Red Wings

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

9) Calgary Flames

10) Minnesota Wild

11) St.Louis Blues

12) Dallas Stars

13) Anaheim Ducks

Stanley Cup Finals

Washington Capitals V.S San Jose Sharks

WINNER: Washington Capitals

San Jose will bump their playoff slump and will actually do some damage. Joe Thornton will be a top player with Heatley being a top playoff performer. Pittsburgh and Washington will once again meet up, but the decision will go Ovy's way this season, Caps are way too powerful, especially with the great trade deadline deals that made them a better team. Vancouver will make it to the conference finals for the first time since 94, but San Jose will knock them out, purely on goaltending performance. I'm not saying Nabakov is better than Luongo. What I mean is in this predicted playoff series, Luongo will not play like he's suppose to, based on previous playoff performances. Canucks making Nabakov looking like a better goalie will be the case.

In the end, the Caps will outplay San Jose, due to Washington's scoring talent with Ovechkin, Backstrom and Semin. The Sharks defense and Nabakov will not be able to handle them.

Agree with my predictions? Or not? Post your Stanley Cup winner prediction.

I think the Wings might be able to beat the Sharks haha, but I am kind of hoping that the Flames and Wings both some how make it in and manage to take out the Hawks and Sharks for us in the 1st round. Very unlikely though for my dream scenario to happen.
