The Daily Chum: Fear the Fin predicts the 2016-17 season

Here goes nothing.

Here comes one of my favorite annual traditions: getting to make picks that will be laughably bad by the middle of the upcoming season. While I’ll take credit for picking the Stanley Cup Champion right last year (as did Emily) we as a unit did only okay at predicting the rest of the slate.

This year I upped the difficulty level and will be sharing the division rankings from every staff writer in addition to their Stanley Cup Final prediction. So without further ado, let’s hit the picks!
