4Quarters Threeman Weave: NHL 2013 Season Predictions

Yes, hockey has been away for a long time but this blog loves the game and during last season’s playoffs the threeman weave was created. Myself, Joe Tichy and Jerry Durney are back to give you who we think win the divisions, make the playoffs, hoist the Cup and take home individual honors.


The NHL season begins today and will any of us pick the Los Angeles Kings to repeat in the quest for another ring like this?

Division Winners –

Joe
Eastern Conference: New York Rangers (Atlantic), Buffalo Sabres (Northeast), Florida Panthers (Southeast)
Western Conference: St. Louis Blues (Central), Minnesota Wild (Northwest), Los Angeles Kings (Pacific)

Mike
Eastern Conference: New York Rangers (Atlantic), Boston Bruins (Northeast), Washington Capitals (Southeast)
Western Conference: St. Louis Blues (Central), Vancouver Canucks (Northwest), Los Angeles Kings (Pacific)

Jerry
Eastern Conference: New York Rangers (Atlantic), Boston Bruins (Northeast), Tampa Bay Lightning (Southeast)
Western Conference: St. Louis Blues (Central), Minnesota Wild (Northwest), Los Angeles Kings (Pacific)

Comments: Everyone likes the Rangers (Atlanta), Blues (Central) and Kings (Pacific) while Jerry and Joe like the Wild (Northwest) where I choose the Canucks. Myself and Jerry took the Bruins (Northeast) with Joe going with the Sabres. Each of us chose a different Southeast winner Joe likes the Panthers, Jerry the Lightning and me the Capitals.

Rest of the Playoff Teams –

Joe
Eastern Conference: Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Washington Capitals
Western Conference: Nashville Predators, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Dallas Stars, Vancouver Canucks

Mike
Eastern Conference: Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes
Western Conference: Minnesota Wild, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks, Anaheim Ducks

Jerry
Eastern Conference: Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils, Buffalo Sabres, Washington Capitals
Western Conference: Detroit Red Wings, Nashville Predators, Vancouver Canucks, Phoenix Coyotes, San Jose Sharks

Comments: Let us start with the Eastern Conference non-divisional playoff teams. We all put the Flyers and Penguins into the playoffs. The Maple Leafs, Capitals show up on two of playoff picks, other solo picks are the Devils, Lightning and Hurricanes. The Western Conference’s only unanimous teams are the Detroit Red Wings who are practically guaranteed to be in the playoffs yearly. Seems like we’ve all got similar combinations out west with the Predators, Blackhawks, Sharks showing up. Teams that are flying solo are the Stars (Joe), Ducks (Mike) and Coyotes (Jerry) which shows we all favor a different Pacific Division foe.

Stanley Cup Finals –

Joe: St. Louis Blues over New York Rangers
Mike: Los Angeles Kings over New York Rangers
Jerry: New York Rangers over Los Angeles Kings

Comments: We’ve all got the Rangers playing for the Cup with only Jerry (noted Blue Shirt fan) picking them to win. I went with a Kings repeat while Joe has hit a note with the Blues winning its first championship.

Individual Awards –

Joe
Hart Trophy (MVP): Zach Parise, Minnesota Wild
Vezina Trophy (Goalie): Pekka Rinne, Nashville Predators
Norris Trophy (Defenseman): Ryan Suter, Minnesota Wild
Calder Trophy (Rookie): Justin Schultz, Edmonton Oilers
Jack Adams (Coach of the Year): Darryl Sutter, Los Angeles Kings
Presidents Cup: St. Louis Blues

Mike
Hart Trophy (MVP): Ryan Callahan, New York Rangers
Vezina Trophy (Goalie): Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings
Norris Trophy (Defenseman): Zdeno Chara, Boston Bruins
Calder Trophy (Rookie): Justin Schultz, Edmonton Oilers
Jack Adams (Coach of the Year): John Tortorella, New York Rangers
Presidents Cup: St. Louis Blues

Jerry
Hart Trophy (MVP): Stephen Stamkos, Tampa Bay Lightning
Vezina Trophy (Goalie): Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
Norris Trophy (Defenseman): Kris Letang, Pittsburgh Penguins
Calder Trophy (Rookie): Vladimir Tarasenko, St. Louis Blues
Jack Adams (Coach of the Year): Ralph Krueger, Edmonton Oilers
Presidents Cup: St. Louis Blues: Los Angeles Kings

Comments: Let’s go through the six postseason trophy’s that I selected for our esteemed panel to choose from.
Hart – Joe choose Zach Parise of the Wild, I went with Ryan Callahan of the Rangers while Jerry choose Stephen Stamkos of the Lightning. Three different choices for the Hart Trophy (MVP) from the panel.
Vezina Again, no one sees eye-to-eye here with three different picks for best goalie, Joe picking Pekka Rinne of the Predators, myself choosing Jonathan Quick of the Kings and Jerry going with Henrik Lundqvist of the Rangers.
Norris Best defenseman? We’ve all taken different routes here with Joe picking Ryan Suter of the Wild, me Zdeno Chara of the Bruins and Jerry making a good pick with Kris Letang of the Pengiuns.
Calder   Rookie of the year finally has some agreement with Joe and I taking Justin Shultz of the Oilers while Jerry likes Vladimir Tarasenko from the Blues.
Jack Adams More disagreement from us with Joe picking Darryl Sutter of his Kings, I picked John Tortorella and Jerry selects Ralph Krueger of the Oilers.
Presidents Cup – Who’ll win the Presidents Cup? Joe and I both like the Blues while Jerry is picking the Kings.

So there you go, we’ve got our picks in and look for us in a few months when we pick the playoffs or try to.
