Bold Predictions For Post-Lockout

I'm going off the board with Luongo to Philly, shot in the dark but Philly has had some WTF moments in the past . If there is some modification in the CBA and players playing in the KHL, maybe they can dodge the Bryz contract (very unlikely to happen, but still fun to entertain the idea).

Maybe a deal around Voracek?

The Oilers are the best team in the West within three years.

My bold prediction is that Edmonton gets ANOTHER first overall pick and still manages to miss the playoffs.

Ping pong balls will decide the draft order.

Behind closed doors or out in the open?

You really need to specify.

Lemiuex annouces the draft order on a TSN special in which he gets to chose the winner of the first pick in honour of his legendary career.

Bold Prediction: A number of vets realize if they retire, they might have to flip burgers for minimum wage because they have no talents outside of hockey. They then decide to accept the CBA.

The flyers trade Both Schenns for Luongo, to back up Bryzgalov.

Caps get their "last piece of the puzzle". Still don't make it to the ECF.

Vancouver finishes fourth in the Northwest, behind upstart (in no particular order) Minnesota, Colorado and Edmonton teams, and misses the playoffs for the first time since 07/08.

Toronto and Montreal are both in the playoff race up until the final days of the regular season, leading to dozens of server crashes as fans argue about which team has a better chance at winning the cup.

Three NHL teams are announced to be relocating. The NHL announces that after the next played season, Quebec City, Portland, and Oklahoma City will be getting NHL teams. Actual hockey fans in Toronto are still frustrated at their inability to see an NHL game without driving to Detroit or Buffalo.

As with the 05/06 lockout, we will see a Russian winger win the Calder trophy (Yakupov), slightly edging out a phenom for Cole Harbour (Mackinnon). The NHL completely drops the ball in the promotion of this amazing coincidence.

Martin Brodeur still doesn't retire, and leads the Devils to a 45 win season and the playoffs.

Columbus finally has a great defense, averaging under 20 shots a game, but still can't win because their goalies let in 25% of all shots on goal.

Sidney Crosby plays a full season yet still finishes second in scoring to Evgeni Malkin. Everyone still refers to Crosby as "the best hockey player on the planet".

Caius Merlyn will claim to watch more games than everyone else on HF combined.

I'd be OK with this given I don't think we'll have a season. MacKinnon and we don't make the playoffs (much like the other 29 teams due to no season). Now make it happen.

Columbus ends up with 2nd, 5th, and 12th picks. Ottawa trades for 5th and selects Elias Lindholm.

Then trades all three of them to the Islanders for all their draft picks over the next five years.

The Jets vote to move back to Atlanta because it's Christmas Eve and 52 degrees outside
