Calling My Shot

Using the new Score yearbook as a guide (second only to McKeen's as far as I'm concerned), I've decided to lay down my 2007-2008 predictions within the format that Steve Kouleas, Mark Osborne and Steve Ludzik picked theirs in the publication.

As a side note, I got addicted to watching The Spin on the Score last year and that show has easily trumped anything on TSN and Sportsnet as far as pure entertainment go. It's an absolute essential for late night viewing. And yes, you do get used to Kouleas' voice.

Wow. Showing Sid and the gang some love... nice to see. Even as a Pens fan, I like your Cup finalists better than the Sporting News' Penguins over Detroit prediction.
