My 5 pre-season predictions revisited

As the 2013 NHL season comes to a close, I thought it would be fun to revisit my 5 "bold" predictions I posted in January. Turns out I did pretty well.

1. The Wings do not win the Central, but continue their incredible playoff run, finishing second in the division behind Chicago.

We finished third, but did continue the playoff streak, so I'll give myself .5/1 on this one.

2. The Wings will win their first-round playoff matchup, against a top 3 Western Conference team, but lose in the second round.

Won against Anaheim, 2nd in the West, and lost in the second round. 1/1

3. At least one of Nyquist, Tatar, and Jurco will get regular playing time. Smith will be an everyday defenseman.

Smith was a regular defenseman and Nyquist got regular PT, as well as Tatar getting a short callup. 1/1

4. The Wings will be active (i.e. more than a supporting piece) at the trade deadline for the first time in a long time.

Fail. 0/1

5. Petr Mrazek gets his first NHL win.

February 7th, a 5-1 win at St. Louis. 1/1

So that gives me 3.5/5 for my predictions. Better than average! I should do this every year.

Looking forward to a fun offseason. I think this will be the most unpredictable offseason in a long time. Enjoy your summers, everyone. Hockey is just about 3 short months away.
