Well, that's done.
The Phoenix Coyotes wrapped up their season Saturday with a win in Anaheim, finishing with 51 points in 48 games. Not their worst season, but not their best.
Because I'm a sick person, I decided to take a look back at my original season predictions for the Coyotes. In retrospect, I didn't do horribly, but I know you fine people would love to tell me just how wrong I was.
For those of you in too big of a hurry to finish reading and want to get to the comments, here are my original predictions. Have fun.
Player to watch: Mikkel Boedker
Top trade bait: Keith Yandle
Scoring leader: Radim Vrbata
Storyline to follow: Can Mike Smith do it again?
Best rehashed nickname: The Bash Brothers
Bold prediction: Steve Sullivan outplays the Wizard
Season outcome: Another year of May hockey in the desert.
For those of you who chose to stick around, my analysis of my predictions is below. Yes, I defended myself a few times. Deal with it.
Now we get to look forward to a summer of ownership talks and rumors. But on the positive side, at least we don't have to listen to the NHL promise that talks were on-going while we all were stuck with baseball.
