If everything stays the same, or even close to the same as far as possession, he'll be close to bang on IMO.
If the newly acquired players do nothing to improve the teams underlying metrics, ie increase possession, then they'll have little or nothing to do with the prediction.
Well, the Leafs just got David Clarkson, one of the best players in the league at getting weak shots on goal, so that should improve their Corsi/Fenwick metrics quite a bit.
