Williams and Frolov both drop 35+ GOALS

Quick gets 8 shut-outs.

Terry Murray gets Adams nomination, and wins.

3. By season's end, Simmonds will be a top-6er, Purcell will be out of a job, and a prospect steals a second-line job (Loktionov or Moller) for good.

HM: Rob Scuderi will connect on a breakout pass.
I like this one....pretty spot-on so far except for the latter part of #3.

Meh, 1.5 out of 3 isn't bad.

Heh, fair enough. Speaking of "Purcell-hate," here're mine:

1. Patrick O'Sullivan outproduces Justin Williams. --So far; still time for Williams to (hopefully) make this one wrong--

2. Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson's combined production is higher than Qyle Quincey & Tom Priessing's (OK, so this one isn't so bold. Sue me).

3. Matt Moulson outproduces Ted Purcell.

Looks like I may have been too optimistic on the Jack Johnson prediction. I should have stuck with a sure thing in Doughty, but that wouldn't have been very bold.

My faith in Quick was well founded though.

My first one is way off, but I blame a lot of that on his shoulder injury

2 is true.

I did manage to go to a single game and not have a beer.

2/3.

I'm pretty close to my first (Kings being 5th seed, we'll see). My other two were kinda off.

Okay so maybe not Purcell, but I'm rooting for Handzus at this point.

Go bold or go home chumps!
I'm giving myself 1 1/2 "atta boy". Although, there was no all star game this year, Johnson did make the US Hockey team.

Simmonds winning the most popular king should be a slam dunk if you used our board as the measuring stick. I can't see him not winning it.

Doughty, Kopi, and Quick are more popular than Simmonds. Let's be reality.

I guess we'll agree to disagree. Yes, the 3 that you forementioned are very popular but I just think more fans enjoy Simmonds and his gritty overall game.

I'm hoping for my third one from my latter predictions to be true...but of course the first one would be poetic justice...

Lol. I doubt anyone in South Central knows who he is. I'm certainly not going to verify that for you.
