Figured I'd do a quick assessment of my predictions with the regular season winding down.

Biggest hits
- Tampa Bay winning president's trophy
- All predicted division winners finishing top 2 in division.
- East top 6 (nearly) correct
- 11 of 16 playoffs teams
- Dallas making the playoffs
- OTT, VAN, DET, etc. being some of the weaker teams in the league

Biggest misses
- CGY, NYI, VGK predicted to miss the playoffs; All comfortably made it in.
- EDM, LAK, CHI comfortably in; All missed playoffs.
- Missed borderline picks of BUF, NJD, COL, and CAR
