Morose Destiny Prediction Contest.... Yeeha!

Post by Cherry Picker » Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:06 pm

I keep hearing such-and-such is the first millennial to do such-and-such, and that got me thinking about the opposite situation and designing this enlightening long-term prediction contest.

You get ten points if you can predict who will be the last non-millennial (someone born before the year 2000) to score a goal in the NHL.
You get ten more points if you can accurately predict what year this will happen.
And finally you get an additional five points if you can accurately predict whether you will be alive to see it (because it’s always fun to think of our own demise).

Good luck!
We are all Jim Benning.

I predict this will be longest-running thread on CC! A 40-year old non-millenial could score in 2039.

Both Howe and Jagr had good size and good skating ability, which were keys to long careers.
So based on that, my prediction will be Brady Tkachuk, who was born Sept 16, 1999.
I figure he will play until he is 43, so his last goal will be scored in 2042.
And finally it’s a toss-up whether I will be alive to see it, butI’m predicting I’ll be a goner by a couple years.
If I’m close to winning this contest, I might have to do myself in in 2041 just to secure the victory.
I look forward to not celebrating when I win this contest.

I predict I'll be needing to reload my giggle jar before the weekend.

Tkachuk is a good guess but he has his dads genetics, and can gain weight pretty easily for that don't think it'll be him.
I'll go with IQ and go with Heiskanen or Hughes.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
