2014-15 NHL predictions: Standings, awards and Stanley Cup picks

There were a lot of different opinions about how the 2014-15 NHL season would play out when the THN team gathered to come up with our predictions. After much debating, these are the picks we settled on as a team.

Weeks ago, the THN team gathered to debate and argue over the 2014-15 NHL standings as we went through the league team by team. We shared our final predictions in the annual Yearbook and ran individual breakdowns of each team over the past month. In our Season Preview magazine, we took it a step further and picked our winners for the major individual awards.

Here, on one easy page, are THN’s official predictions for the 2014-15 NHL season.
