  1. I thought those were supposed to be insane predictions mI don't see one that isn't at least even money to happen

  2. pretty funny stuff man.

    I think Kulemin's 40 goal season prediction could be a good one, he knows how to use his frame within the rules

  3. The leafs are an embarrassment, enough said.
