I was reviewing the "bold" post lockout predictions in which SuperGenius suggested that we revisit in May while promptly locking the thread....

mod edit: If I hadn't locked it, it wouldn't be as interesting to look back on now
One thing I noticed, Eklund and can't make a prediction to save is ass. But this quote, from me, just hurt me reading it.

With a shortened season and top six that will take some time to gell, I could see this season start off really slow and not have enough time to move up to a playoff spot. However, I don't see us finishing as anywhere close to the worst team in the West never mind the league.
Not that this is interesting to anyone but me, but I'm not going to open a new thread.

I was off by a country mile on 2., but not so bad on the others.

I think we will make the playoffs based on these points:

1)We get off to a hot start. That will be a great benefit in a shortened season.
2) Bobrovsky(sic?) turns into a legitimate starting goalie-his performance behind our D will keep us in it once the hot start is gone.
3) Our defensemen depth will handle the load of the season and keep us in it.
4)Our offense will just do enough to help us win close games.

It it doesn't work out, no big deal, I feel we are on a upswing as an organization no matter what.
Day-um!

Prediction for the Jackets? We see the most competitive, hard working team we've ever had. They battle hard on a nightly basis, but come up short on the playoff push. We wind up with 1 top-5 pick, 1 top-10 pick, and the Ranger pick becomes #30 after they win the Cup.
I was right on one (two) very important things here ... May still be right about the Rangers, but I won't be right about the draft picks.

Mason performs well but not as well as Bob.

Mason and Bob are resigned but Mason goes to the ducks after hiller has a bad year and we get Bobby Ryan

Bold enough?
He may be crazy, but the Force is strong with this little one.

I did successfully predict that we would lose the draft lottery. As I predict I will lose the powerball tonight.

With 20 games against the teams in our division, it won't be easy.
I would say that I hit it right on the head.

We did better against our division than I thought we would, though.

All this crowing is funny... ish.

Worth noting that the thread was closed with the suggestion that we revisit it in May. If only that internalized timetable of failure would have been wrong!

I've eaten enough crow over the last decade to fill a silo.... I was close enough to sow a seed...
