While putting together our Yearbook, THN staffers gathered to debate (or shout out) where we thought each team would end up this season. We ranked each division slot and also picked who we thought would represent each conference in the Stanley Cup final and who would win it.

And we all likely left the room thinking what Kent Brockman once broadcasted: "I've said it before, and I'll say it again: democracy simply doesn't work."

Here, in one neat collection, are THN's official predictions for 2013-14.
