RealGM\\\'s 21-22 NHL Predictions 

Post#1 » by RealGM Articles » Tue Oct 5, 2021 10:01 pm

The 2021-22 NHL season is rapidly approaching and fans can\\\'t wait for the action to get started. While many prognosticators are choosing the Avalanche, Islanders, Jets, or Burins to win the 2022 Stanley Cup, I\\\'m going to stick with the defending champion Lightning to capture a third-straight title. Tampa Bay is led by elite winger Nikita Kucherov who returned in last years playoffs and contributed 15 points over 13 games.  Look for the new Seattle Kraken expansion club to challenge some of the top teams in the Pacific Division.
