Five Ridiculous NHL Predictions Guaranteed to Come True!

Someone Out West Will Actually Be Considered for the Hart Memorial Trophy This Season!

Hilarious, right?  I mean, who on the East Coast has time to stay uo and watch Western Conference games?  YAWN.  I’ll base my opinions on who the best players in the NHL are on games that end before 11 p.m., thank you very much!

And yet . . . I suppose it was a bit unfair that ALL of last season’s Hart Tropy finalists could be found in the Eastern Conference.  (Like it’s our fault that we actually have all of the best players?)  There are a few good players out West, like that Ryan Getzlaf guy, and some of the players who played for that team that won the Stanley Cup last year.  I guess we can toss them a bone and let them get considered for the  Hart, especially if the Ducks can actually make me look good and go all the way.

Winning it, though?  Don’t push your luck, westies.
