With the NHL regular season officially getting underway tonight, that means that it's still prediction season. This NHL season is arguably one of the hardest to predict in recent memories. With an influx of great young talent into the league, and some teams adding loads of talent over the summer, question marks abound. Will the same teams who dominated last season remain atop the NHL, or will there be new blood in the postseason yet again? Here are the predictions of our Second City Hockey staff:
