In 2011-2012, I was 1/5, hitting on Tyler Seguin scoring 25+ goals. Last season, I'm going to say I was 2/5. Here were my predictions:  1. Tuukka Rask will win the Vezina Trophy 2. Boston doesn't win the Northeast Division 3. Tyler Seguin ends up Top 10 in goals scored in the NHL 4. Dougie Hamilton doesn't live up to his ridiculous expectations put on him by the fans 5. David Krejci gets traded I was dead on with my second prediction as Montreal won the Northeast. Of course, I picked the Sabres to win it, but hey I was half right. I will also give myself credit for the Dougie Hamilton prediction because some of the **** coming off of Twitter and the media was ******* mind blowing. People were on their knees ready to annoint this kid the next Bobby Orr beca...
