It's hard for me to think stats with this shorter, compressed season. But:
Scott: Will win every fight he participates in.
Folingo/Ennis/Stafford: Will pick up right where they left off last season, but Ennis will get hurt midway through.
Grigo: Will start out okay and impressive for 18, get better, and then switch his number to 89.
Sekera: Will have another unsung hero defensive year
Hodgson: Something just won't work out with him centering the #1 line opening the door for....get this.... Broken-Joken-YoChen Hecht or Grigorenko
Myers: Will be more dominant than he was last year, more closer to his rookie season. Might get suspended for a game for almost killing an opponent accidentally and will also have a pretty good fight in a game.
Leino: Will be better than last season while still not meeting those $4 mil/yr expectations.
Vanek: If it were an 82 game season he'd score 36. Tough to say in 48 games though because he seemingly goes weeks in a scoring drought and in Lindy's doghouse and then will go nuclear getting a goal+assist in every game for 2 weeks.
Miller: Will be better after the concussion has worn off.
Lindy Ruff: At one point he'll throw **** on the ice out of frustration at the team and refs.
The team: Exceeds exceptions of the national sports press and is 5th in the east if they don't take their division putting them in 3rd. Makes it to 2nd round of playoffs. Goal scoring will improve. Offense and Defense won't be their problems, it will be winning games with the parts they have.
Rick Jeanneret: Sticks around for another season after this with the blessing from Pegula to broadcast whatever games he wants to or doesn't want to.
Rob Ray: Will fit in good as color man.
TJ Brennan and Weber will be traded.
