With the NHL regular season over, I figured I'd post the predictions for the 2007-08 season by The Hockey News, McKeen's and myself and compare who was closer. (Click spreadsheet to enlarge)
Mostly, I have to apologize to Caps owner Ted Leonosis, because I picked his team to falter, yet they made the playoffs. I also hacked him for his UFA signings last summer (Kozlov, Poti, Nylander). I more or less stand by that hacking, however his acquisitions of Cooke, Fedorov and especially Huet really paid off down the stretch. Way to go McPhee and Leonosis!
So who's a better predictor, the pro's or me? Let's crunch a few numbers shall we?
Predictions that were:
The Hockey News: 3
Off by 1:
The Hockey News: 8
Off by 2 or less:
The Hockey News: 13
Off by 3 or less:
The Hockey News: 17
Off by 5 or more:
The Hockey News: 10
So yeah, I'm the Champ! haha. Next up will be playoff predictions!
