## 2nd Annual LHH Season Prediction Contest

Not on the ballot: How many chest hairs this guy plucks. - Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

Last season, I had a 10 question prediction challenge. It seemed to go over pretty well, so I've extended its contract and brought it back again. One entry per person, please, and submit your answers in the comments below. Deadline is before puck drop of the first game of the season.

Prizes include getting to listen to the new goal horn while bitching about the coaching, goaltending, defense and offense, and agonizing all season over your answer to question # 10.

Good luck!
