NHL’s 105th Seasons Overview
Our current worldwide pandemic has impacted many aspects of life, and the sports industry is not an exemption. The NHL has played two truncated seasons in recent years, but has announced plans to play a full 82-game season for 2021-22. Many people were disappointed with the shortened seasons, thus most hockey fans are very enthusiastic about watching their favorite players compete in more games this year.
The good news is that the NHL has decided to release the full schedule so that fans can plan their watching. Even though the games are not being played in various locations, they have promised to have more interactive events which includes online broadcasts.
The NHL season is about to start and it’s a perfect time for predictions. Here are some of the most interesting events that happened in the past year, as well as what we can expect from this upcoming season.
The NHL has been going strong for 105 years now and there seems to be no end in sight. The league has taken a few major blows over the years but they always manage to come back stronger than before. Even though people have restrictions on how they watch hockey games nowadays, online streaming services such as NHL GameCenter Live offer all 82 regular-season games live and on-demand so fans will never miss any action again! We also predict that teams like Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins will be top contenders for this upcoming season, with rivals Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers being close behind.
Today, most sports have shifted to online-based entertainment, including the NHL. This might mean that people can watch games even outside their home countries through international live streaming websites such as Unibet TV. Besides the live streaming platforms, other entertainment industries connected to sport including hockey like gambling and online casinos are also booming. For instance, live casinos Ireland, online sports betting in the U.S and Canada, and some other countries have seen a significant increase in the number of users in recent years.
NHL Predictions for the 2021/22 Season
The 105th season is just around the corner and it’s time to discuss some predictions. With many talented hockey players being part of this season, we predict that teams such as Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins will be top contenders for this upcoming season, with rivals Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers close behind.
In the East, we see teams like Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins as favorites to make it to the playoffs. Both of these teams have been doing extremely well in the past few seasons and they are definitely not ones to underestimate. As for the Western Conference, we predict that teams such as the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings will make it all the way to the playoffs.
We also predict that there will be some significant changes in the playoff brackets this year. For example, we believe that the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals may not make it as far as they have in previous seasons.
As always, we cannot wait for the start of the NHL season and we are sure that this new season will be one to remember. The 105th season of the league is going to be a blast and we cannot wait for it to get started!
