Second time should be a charm for the Lightning: After falling in the Stanley Cup Finals last year, they're Haggs' pick to win it all.
There are a couple noticeable changes coming to the NHL this season, and you won't find many - if any - people upset about them.
With the season opener about 48 hours away, here are five bold predictions for the Boston Bruins in the 2015-16 season.
3yMilan Lucic is beginning to establish himself as not only an imposing figure on the ice, but also a tremendous leader.
3yThe Bs dont have many roster holes, but this is the time of year for teams to look for that complementary piece that could push them over the top, or maybe a blockbuster to reel in a big name player like Shea Weber.
3yWhile there is more than enough passionate discourse to go around on Tim Thomas decision to go public with his political leanings, there isnt much emanating from the Bruins dressing room.
3yTyler Seguin was one of the best forwards on the ice for the Bruins and seemed to be creating most of the best offensive chances for the Black and Gold, but he just couldnt slap the finishing touch on any of the plays.
3yThe Bruins have now lost six of their last 11 contests.
3yThe Penguins dish out 28 hits, leaving the Bruins reaching for ice bags and aspirin.
3ySmashing his own record, Zdeno Chara puts on a show in the city where he played for several seasons.
