At the end of Wednesday night’s SPHL Season Preview broadcast, The Sin Bin’s Managing Editor Matthew Harding, Cottonmouths correspondent Dawne Walters, Thunderbolts writer Mike Finazzo, and I made our predictions for the upcoming season.

The four of us gazed into the crystal puck and picked the winners of the William B. Coffey Trophy for best regular season record, President’s Cup finalists, and the eventual 2016-17 SPHL champion.

Pro Tip: If you’re on a mobile device, you may want to view this in you’re device’s landscape view.
