Hmm I guess my predictions will be:
Smith still has a few brain-farts, but he becomes a LGW favorite this season. Babs gives him an opportunity on the power play, and he doesn't give it up.
Cleary plays 10 games and is benched for the rest of the season. He then finally calls it a career.
Weiss plays 50-60 games, looks much better than he did last year, but still not as good as he could be (and LGW expects). He becomes the new whipping boy.
Howard has top 10 stats, half of LGW still argues that he's average.
Gustavsson is often injured, and when he plays he is out of position, loses sight of the puck, fumbles the puck in the crease, and will somehow still win us games.
Mrazek will play 10-15 games for the Wings this season, and look good in every game.
Wings will go on a 3 game losing streak, LGW will implode.
Wings will go on a 3 game winning streak, LGW will believe this team is as good as the 2002 team.
