Not just Habs/Sens/Leafs. Make some wacky predictions the "experts" don't have the balls to.

-The Leafs finish 5th in the East and vastly improve puck possession/shots against.
-Phil Kessel misses his first NHL game in 5 years.
-Kadri scores over 60 points for the Leafs.
-Gardiner scores over 40 and plays the best hockey of his career.
-Alex Galchenyuk scores 64 points for the Habs and is one of the NHL's break-out players.
-The New York Islanders make the playoffs in the East.
-Crosby stays healthy again and wins the scoring/Hart for the second year in a row.
-The Capitals make the playoffs, play very good defense, and Trotz is a finalist for coach of the year.
-The Rangers struggle after making the finals and have to fight for a playoff spot in the final weekend of the regular season.
-Cory Schenider is a finalist for the Vezina.
-Brodeur never plays another game and retires after no offers.
-Carolina wins the Mcdavid Sweepstakes.

-The Avs regress terribly and miss the playoffs.
-The Ducks win the President's Trophy.
-Patrick Kane finishes second in NHL scoring with over 90 points.
-The Kings play solid, but again fail to crack one of the top 4 spots in the West.
-Ryan Nugent Hopkins gets 75 points and has a huge year.
-Drew Doughty wins the Norris and records a career high in points.
-Sami Vatanen scores over 40 points on D for the Ducks and takes the next step.

-NHL Finals: Ducks over Habs in 6 games.

-leafs make it in, but not by much
-Ottawa isn't even close
-Boston will not win the division
-islanders make it in easily
-Miller has a rebound year and the media will go back to wrongfully claiming that he's an elite goalie
-but he plays on the Canucks, so he will so terribly choke in the postseason

-Rielly slumps for you guys, and ends up spending more than a few games being benched
-you will play a goon in over half your games this year, and your record in those ones will be under .500.
-Kadri also fails to before a breakout player, leading to increased resentment towards him
-but despite that, Lupul rebounds slightly, and Clarkson plays better than useless hockey.
-Ryan hits 70 points, but everyone else on Ottawa other than Karlsson is complete crap. Lehner does well, but hardly plays
-Galchenyuk does awesome for us. Pacioretty and Gallagher have down years. Price does good but not amazing, but makes up for it with more solid playoff performance. Subban takes a big leap forward in calming down his antics on the ice, and the Refs stop calling him 2x more than other guys for the same crimes
-Crosby stays healthy
-Stamkos wins the Richard by a longshot, with over 50 goals. Some media will finally admit that he's an elite goal scorer
-Ovechkin has a strong year, but still only second with 40ish goals. Someone else who nobody currently really expects to score a lot of goals will end up in 3rd (talking like a Benn, Mackinnon, Okposo type player)
-Tavares finishes second in the league in points. Okposo will also be top 15 in points in the league, but will get no credit on his own
-Kunitz has another strong year, and we all reluctantly start giving him some credit
-the Vezina finalists will include 2 guys who people seem confident in predicting now, and one guy who seems to be out of nowhere

Leafs finish top 4 in conference and win at least 2 rounds.
Kadri hits 80 points.
JVR hits 70.
Bernier .925+ save %
Clarkson redeems himself

My Leafs goggled predictions:

Leafs win the division
Bernier is a finalist for Vezina
Clarkson score 20 goals
Nylander is top 3 or Calder
Kessel hit 40 Goals
Phaneuf is in the discussion for Norris but not a finalist
Rielly has a monster year.
Kadri's improvement stagnates point wise but overall impact is improved.

Jeremy
10-05-2014, 07:53 PM

Phaneuf, Gardiner & Rielly all surmount 40 points.

On the back of Bernier and a weak ass Eastern conference the leafs get into the playoffs with the 3rd seed in our division and make a playoff run to the finals.

First time in my life I've placed a vegas bet on this.

Leaf predictions:
Reilly suffers a bit of the sophmore slum in the first 3/4 of the season and then the last 15 games or so breaks out huge.
Gardiner really takes the reigns and becomes an elite point getter
Phaneuf with the help of Robidas doesn't put up massive numbers but his defensive abilities have people talking again.
JVR breaks out and leads the leafs in points and is very close behind Phil in goals.... real close.
Reimer is traded near the deadline for not much, but he doesn't pan out in his next city either.

League Predictions
-Pittsburgh struggles to put up wins with the crappy goaltending of Fleury. Bylsma is turfed and the Pens come in as the 6th or 7th seed.
-Dallas takes a huge step forward and at the deadline make a deal to get a big name defenseman.
-Colorado sputters and Roy starts pulling junior league temper tantrums and becomes the joke of the league.
-Boston comes in first in the east but have a choppy playoff run with long series that tire them out.
-Calgary is alot better than teams give them credit and they just miss the playoffs.
-Rangers falter badly and miss the playoffs
-Buffalo wins the Connor Mcdavid sweeps. But still cause the leafs fits when they play them.

Standings and results:
East only
Boston
Tampa
Columbus
Montreal
Pittsburgh
Toronto
Washington
Islanders

Boston beats the Islanders in 7
Tampa loses to Washington in 6
Toronto beats Columbus is a war that goes to 7
Montreal beats Pittsburgh on the back of Price in 6

Rd 2
Boston beats Washington but Rask is not on his game and it goes to 6 or 7
Toronto beats Montreal in the best playoff series of the last 10 years. Kadri and JVR have Price's number

Boston vs Toronto.

In theory, I suppose.

But that would then bring us to our next difficulty: convincing Clarkson to waive his NTC and willingly move away from his home town after one year, so that he can spend the next 5-6 years playing for a bottom feeder in sunny Edmonton.

Clarkson turned down more money to go to the Oilers. He won't want to go there.

Here is one:

David Clarkson is traded. Leafs retain 2 mill per season. Who takes him at 3.25?

More GM's than I think most here would assume. I could see there being a small line up of GM's who would consider his "grit, experience, leadership" along with his goal scoring track record for their 3rd line at that salary level. With 55-65 point guys costing 7 million in this environment, Clarkson at 3ish isn't outlandish money...even at that term.


With that said, the bigger issue is going to be his no trade.

Volcanologist
10-08-2014, 07:38 AM

Oh they definitely would, they offered an even bigger contract than the Leafs gave him. Too bad Clarkson couldn't simply take the most cash like 99% of free agents do.

That's nothing new, though. Their wingers have sucked balls since Crosby's sophomore season in the league.

They do have Patric Hornqvist, and he managed to consistently score 20-30 goals with the punchless Nashville Predators, so he must be alright. And then beyond him, Malkin and Crosby will probably still find a way to turn junk like Kunitz, Dupuis, Spaling & Downie into legit scorers.

Not just Habs/Sens/Leafs. Make some wacky predictions the "experts" don't have the balls to.

-The Leafs finish 5th in the East and vastly improve puck possession/shots against.
-Phil Kessel misses his first NHL game in 5 years.
-Kadri scores over 60 points for the Leafs.
-Gardiner scores over 40 and plays the best hockey of his career.
-Alex Galchenyuk scores 64 points for the Habs and is one of the NHL's break-out players.
-The New York Islanders make the playoffs in the East.
-Crosby stays healthy again and wins the scoring/Hart for the second year in a row.
-The Capitals make the playoffs, play very good defense, and Trotz is a finalist for coach of the year.
-The Rangers struggle after making the finals and have to fight for a playoff spot in the final weekend of the regular season.
-Cory Schenider is a finalist for the Vezina.
-Brodeur never plays another game and retires after no offers.
-Carolina wins the Mcdavid Sweepstakes.

-The Avs regress terribly and miss the playoffs.
-The Ducks win the President's Trophy.
-Patrick Kane finishes second in NHL scoring with over 90 points.
-The Kings play solid, but again fail to crack one of the top 4 spots in the West.
-Ryan Nugent Hopkins gets 75 points and has a huge year.
-Drew Doughty wins the Norris and records a career high in points.
-Sami Vatanen scores over 40 points on D for the Ducks and takes the next step.

-NHL Finals: Ducks over Habs in 6 games.

Some bad ones, but overall ok. Better than those "Experts" who pick the same shit year after year. Although I need to stay away from Leaf predictions.
See what the next 2/3rds brings us.
