A day before the 2019-20 NHL season began, we gave out 12 fearless value bets for the campaign. It was essentially a "bold predictions" article.
Let's revisit all of those predictions, working our way from the worst of the bunch to the best.
Not only were the Sharks NOT going to win the Cup this season, but they were in pole position to finish last in the Western Conference.
A broken thumb cut Karlsson's season short, but he wasn't anywhere near the Norris conversation through 56 games.
Why do I get the feeling that while Sergei Bobrovsky struggled on the ice, his handicap drastically improved away from it?
I led this section off by writing, "I have nothing but respect and admiration for Blues coach Craig Berube." I proceeded to bet against him. That was foolish.
I mean, it still could have happened, right? This is all Tristan Jarry's fault.
I think at least two of these bets would have cashed if the season wasn't suspended, but the point of this was to show I was higher on the Canucks and lower on the Flames and Jets than most, and I'm feeling pretty good about all of that right now.
The Islanders could still have thrown a wrench in this, but for the first time since 1965-66, it was looking like no New York-area team was going to make the playoffs.
