Well everyone, another season is apon us!

I'm not sure if you're as excited as I am for this upcoming season, but I absolutely can't wait!

So everyone give 10 predictions for the upcoming season, we'll come back afterwards and see if anyone was close! (doesn't have to be just DRW predictions)

 

1. Jimmy Howard wins Vezina in a landslide. Will be considered top 3 goaltender in league.

2. Daniel Alfredsson scores 35 goals but gets hurt at end of season and misses playoffs.

3. Steven Stamkos scores 60 goals.

4. Chicago wins the Stanley Cup (I'm sorry...I'm sorry)

5. Pittsburgh misses playoffs

6. Toronto regresses and gets top 10 draft pick yet again.

7. Sidney Crosby & Evgeni Malkin score over 105 points each. 

8. Filppula finishes under 45 points

9. Detroit/Toronto HBO special finishes with highest ever ratings.

10. Dan Cleary forces us to all love him again. We hate every moment of it.

I'll play!

 

1)  Tootoo wins many fights.  Red-blooded hockey fans love him.  Others fear him.

2)  Ericsson continues to improve to the point that he meets LGW expectations.

3)  Z and Pavel re-activate their Eurotwin Powers.

4)  Helm finally gets healthy. 

5)  Helm scores on a breakaway.  Just one, though.

6)  Bertuzzi makes it through the season healthy, wins fights, and dazzles with his spin-o-rama.

7)  Bertuzzi gets penalized for exposed elbow pads, but convinces Shanny and co. that his jersey is just too intimidated of what he might do to it if it fails to follow his wishes that the "Bertuzzi clause" is introduced.

8)  Sammy is a healthy scratch, used only when needed to replace injured players.

9)  Sammy scores the first two goals in the SCF like he did the last time I dared to doubt him publicly, thus making a fool out of myself.

10)  Vancouver wins the cup, with Lu as the Conn Smythe winner.

 

Note:  I do not want the last one, but since "Detroit wins the Cup!" is too easy, I went for something a bit more fantasy-like.

1. Crosby and Malkin get injured and the Pens miss the playoffs

2. Sedins get hit too much and become even more afraid of the corners and both finish with 42 points

3. Columbus makes it to the playoffs and lose in the WCF

4. I'll second the motion of Stamkos scoring 60 goals, but I'll cheer for 93

5. Howard gets screwed out of the Vezina in favor of Quick, despite better numbers

6. Datsyuk finally tops 100 points playing with Z and Abs all year

7. Abdelkader gets exactly 50 points on the top line this year.

8. Smith redeems himself and becomes servicable

9. Sproul and Ouellet own the AHL's ass

10. Torres and Cooke fight to the death and both lose. No one cares.

8. Samuelsson plays less than 20 games and scores less than 10 points.

i know the nhl writers and analysts are not the greatest, but quite a few people are putting us on top of our division, and even the conference, with one analyst picking us as the eventual polished goblet winner... take from it what you will

1. We finish somewhere in the 6-10th spot.
2. Pittsburgh, washington, Boston, mtl, Toronto will finish as the top five teams.
3. Abby scores 25 goals and finishes with about 60 points.
4. My boy smith finally pulls it together and looks like a future too line guy.
5. Zetterburg, Sammy, Bert, helm, Jonas, andkronwall all miss some significant time due to injuries.
6. Dats shows he is still one of the best in the business all year long and gets 100 points.
7. Franzen has less than 20 goals. 5 of which will be in two games. And continues to prove me right and hopefully gets bought out.
8. Weiss will have a worse year than lecavier and fil.
9. Ericsson and smith and tootoo will all win multiple fights this year. Obviously tootoo will be in a lot more....
10. Bobby Ryan will have a beast year in Ottawa. And I'll continue to cry that we didn't get him.

1. We will miss the play-offs

3. Our PP will be our enforcer scoring at less than 10%

3. Nyquist and Tatar will spend 70% of the season in GR

4. Kenny will sign both Todd and Mikael to 2 years contracts with full NMC

5. We will still love our team


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Not a chance. After the way Z willed this team into the playoffs last season, the Wings will not miss with him as captain. I believe in Z.

1. Photoshop wars will be awesome this year. (New teams, new players)
2. Wings make the playoffs as the second seed.

5. Toronto and Detroit fans will brawl every chance they get. Making even European soccer fans jealous.
6. Helm returns!!! And becomes the speed demon of old. Nightmare on Helm street!
7. With Alfredsson and kronwall on the point, our power play is in the top three of the entire league.
8. Crosby wines and has a temper tantrum because the penguins do not make the playoffs.
9. Black Hawks loose to the ducks in the western finals. Ducks advance to the Stanley cup finals.
10. Zetterberg is the league MVP

That would be an awesome prediction if you spelled our Captain's name right.  Zetterberg... ;)

1. Cleary and Samuelson play more games than Nyquist and Tatar.

2. Abdelkader doesn't break 20 goals.

3. At the deadline the following phrases will be used 'we kicked some tires' 'prices are too high' 'X player (coming off of IR) is our trade deadline acquisition' 'We just need to make the playoffs and anything can happen' 'we like our team'.
