Rate this topic

23 posts in this topic

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

I never thought I'd hear this come out of Crawford's mouth...

@TsnMarcCrawford: Division winners L A Kings, Chicago, Detroit and Boston. Detroit vs Chicago final and the well rested Red Wings Cup winners. #originalsix
