Season predictions

With the 2017-18 NHL season upon us, the staff here at Buffalo Hockey Central have submitted predictions for where teams will finish in their respective conferences. We took all 11 contributors and averaged out the standings, giving us a good look at each team’s expected finish.

On Monday, we’ll post our prediction for the Stanley Cup winners.

For now, we ranked them as to where they will finish in their conference. After combining all of our predictions, here’s what the BHC staff believes the standings will look like by the end of the regular season:

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
