1. Sheppard wins the #4 C job. His final stat line: 10-19-29.
2. Heatley scores 28 goals. We are all thrilled, but we have to listen to Sharks & Senators fans say "I told you so" all ****ing year.
3. No major injuries.

1. Zidlicky, Zanon, or both will be traded before the trade deadline.
2. Brodziak will win the 2nd line center and put in 40+ points, due to chemistry with Latendresse (and Cullen's inability to cycle the puck).
3. Heatley puts in 40 goals. Boom goes the dynamite.

I would be hard pressed to stop myself from resurrecting the Heatley/Havlat trade thread and mocking every single hater if Heatley scores 40 goals next year.

Make it happen, Heater--it'll be well worth the suspension.

-Heatley scores around 35 goals (let's say 32-38)
-Latendresse pots about 25 goals
-Koivu has by far his best year, topping a point per game
-Gillies-Brodziak-Clutterbuck line combines for around 80 points
-Backstrom finishes the year better than his career average (2.42 GAA/.917 SV%)
-Wild PK finishes in the top 8
-Scandella takes a leap forward and is (legitimately) playing in the top pairing by the trade deadline
-No more than 2 of these predictions comes true

Oh, and a related prediction:

Burns is a Norris finalist (loses to Weber's beard) but San Jose fails to re-sign him before July 1.

-Heatly puts in 48 goals
-Koivu has 100 points
-Our top line is a top 3 line in the Western Conference
-The Clutterbuck line becomes one of the biggest pains in the ass for the opposing teams top line
-Lats buries 30 goals and makes the #2 center look good when hes really just average
-Backs has an up and down year, but Harding is so jazzed up that he stands on his head in almost all of his starts
-We do something big as far as defense goes at the trading deadline
-We challenge Vancouver for the division title, spanking them all three times at home (twice against LuBrongo because they're too stupid to start Schnieder the first two times) and beating them once in their barn, but we end up 4 points behind them at the end. They become the #2 seed while we are the #4 seed.
-We advance at least to the second round.

The Wild will make the playoffs.

That's my bold prediction.

-Minnesota misses the playoffs but ends up with a later draft pick than this year (11-14).
-Fans are happy with Yeo and Heatley's performance.
-Fans aren't happy with Backstrom's performance.

1.5 out of 3 isn't bad.

C'mon guys, the OP said BOLD predictions.

Havlat and Heatley fight when the Wild play the Sharks.

The Wild fans' favorite player at the end of the season has yet to make/join the team.

The Wild flail BEFORE the trade deadline for once, unload vets for picks, then make the playoffs.

Latendresse leads the Wild in goals.

Bouchard leads in assists.

Stoner leads in penalty minutes.

and last but not least

Nick Schultz scores a hat trick!

-Heatley drops 32 goals.
-Setoguchi drops 15 or less.
-Jonas Brodin starts and ends his season looking like a steal at #10.
-Granlund's stat totals take a hit (note that I didn't say he regressed).
-Scandella gets >20 assists.
-One of Gillies or Sheppard will earn our respect back or for the first time.
-Clutterbuck gets 20 goals.
-Latendresse disappoints.
-Backstrom gets only one shutout all season.
-Bulmer has a bad season while Haula has a good one.
-Nick Schultz scores 5 goals or more. (Perhaps my boldest prediction of all)

EDIT: Haha. Two bold predictions about Schultz scoring goals in a row.

Anyways, to stay on topic
-Dany Heatley scores ~35
-James Sheppard wins the #4 center job, and makes Brodziak(rental) expendable at the deadline with his play
-Wild have 3 captains(Zucker, Larsson, Granlund) at the world juniors
-Speaking of Larsson, he continues to improve from his 2nd half last year and finishes with ~25 pts with Brynas
-Matt Hackett makes multiple appearances in net for the Wild
-Mike Yeo communicates effectively, the team shows up in shape for camp, and we have a Lemaire-esqe start to the season

1. M. Koivu makes it to the all-star game.
2. Yeo wins the Jack Adams award. (okay, maybe too bold)
3. Powe has more hits than Clutterbuck this year.
4. Setoguchi scores 30+ goals, PMB sets personal record for assists in the year.
5. Heatley scores a hat trick against Ottawa (their home opener).
