Let's predict the conference standings - 1st place team

As we patiently wait for the season to start, I thought we could kill time by predicting the conference standings (in true HFHawks fashion, the poll idea came to me way too late to predict the full league).

Season starts Oct. 9, so with 14 teams we can get through them all with a new poll every couple of days...anyone can feel free to start a new one. Of course, many of us (myself included) get bored of these types of things very fast - so it could be the idea is exhausted by the end of this weekend.

Who do you think will finish first in the Western Conference?

Was actually just thinking about doing a topic asking for folks to predict final standings and/or the conference matchups.

I think that the Ducks will be on top of the regular season standings, by combo of them improving during the offseason and the Hawks' mindset obviously being more geared towards saving a bit for the postseason. I'm a bit conflicted when it comes to who'll win the regular season division crown between Chicago and St. Louis for that same reason, with the added caveat that I'm not entirely sure what to expect from the Blues in the net.

Regardless, expecting a Hawks/Ducks showdown in the conference final.

I think it's a bit silly to do this poll as a Hawks thread. However, lets take solace in the fact that the main board already had this type of poll, and we still ended up in first.

Edit: Though, I'd be fine with seeing the teams that place second, third, and so on.

Nah, we're good. Might as well kill some time with regular season predictions and hold off on playoff predictions for a more reasonable time.... like 13 seconds into the preseason.

When do I get to start the polls board thread "If the Hawks weren't stuck with the worst 2c in the history of the entire universe, who would have won game 7 OT of the WCF..the Hawks or the undeserving other team!?!?!?!"

edit - nofun, now that there are more people posting on the hawks board, we should do that game we did last year (W/Score/First Goal). maybe it will stick longer.

I thought about it a bit - and thought I'd look like an jackass if i started a thread on the topic but started it at "#2 best"

Understandable, I'll just sit back and enjoy seeing the hawks win again.

I gave it to St. Louis, which just makes it that much better when they mess up in the playoffs.

I feel like we don't always do the best during the regular season, and I feel like the Ducks are always fighting to win the regular season, so I went there.

Can't vote but I think it will be Anaheim. The Central looks to be the toughest division again and with Colorado, St. Louis, and Chicago duking out of for top honors and Minnesota still looks to be a dark horse threat, Anaheim will only have LA as a legitimate threat (I think SJ and Vancouver will regress, aned I don't think Phoenix, Edmonton, or Calagary will rise enough to be a legit threat). I think Anaheim is the stronger regular season team but LA is better for the playoffs.

Thus, the Pacific numbers will be buoyed.
