The 2017-2018 season of NHL hockey was mostly dominated by the Vegas Golden Knights having a magical inaugural season. That magic, however, faded as the Washington Capitals won their first-ever Stanley Cup. It is now time to think about who will hoist the Stanley Cup this season. Who will triumph this season? Could Washington repeat? Can Vegas gain revenge? Could there be new challengers wanting to win? Could a once-struggling team come alive as a contender? So many story lines, so little time... Anyhow, here is another thread of mine devoted to the National Hockey League. You want to talk NHL hockey? You want to predict who'll be hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup? Feel free to chime in before the puck drops for real in games that matter later this year.
