Hckyplayer8's '11/'12 Season Expectations

Hckyplayer8's '11/'12 Season Expectations *Updated versions may be available later


-Goalie controversy continues. Bryz doesn't perform nearly as well as expected and Bob makes a considerable push to take the role as #1 goaltender.
-Pronger suffers more injuries. Competes in 70 Reg. Season games.
-Roo will lead the team for the second year in points. He tallies a new personal record of 80 pts.
-I may or may not be wrong about Euro Mullet. He may not be as fast as he once was, but it is obvious his shooting and stick handling skills are still spectacular. With Roo feeding him like he has in the preseason, and Carter/Richie gone, mully mullet may just become the top goal scorer on the team.
-Danny contests with Jagar as the number scorer on the team. Beats him out by setting a personal record of 40 goals.
-JVR's starts slow due to injury and trying to get his feet under him. Starts breaking out when we need him, likely after the break.
-Simmonds will continue to use slurs much to the Rangers despise. The NHL will cover him by editing "The Circle of Life" Lion King track over any slurs he uses.
-Simmonds, Vorachek have solid years but don't immediately fill the void left by Richie and Carter....they likely post around 30-35 pts each
-Read will be an interesting one to watch. His adaptability and success depends on what line he gets stuck with....if we choke him down in the 4th line with likes of Rinaldo/Nodl/Betts ect....then he falls flat....I wouldn't mind keeping him with Roo and Jagar as he seems like he wants it as bad as anybody out there....if he gets third line up...I think hes capable of 20+ pts

Lines *i didn't match the players to whichever side they prefer


1st- JVR-Briere-Voracek
2nd-Read-Giroux-Jagr3rd-Harts-Simmonds-Schenn
4th-Talbot-Betts-Zolnierczyk
Rinaldo

Pronger-Carle
Timonen-Coburn
Meszaros-Bartulus
Walker


*With Schenn hurt, Coutuier gets a brief shot?


Overall Team Standings
W- 40
L- 33
OTL-9
P-89


That will be good enough to fight with the Rangers for second in our division. Bos, Pitt, Wash finish higher than us in the standings.
We make the playoffs, with first round success depending on who we face. If we face Wash, we beat them. Bos or Pitt could be a toss up. I def. think we get worn out/injury driven/goal tender chaos and get kicked out in teh second round.


I'm sure many of you figured out I'm pretty pessimistic...especially in the face of change. The above is my optimistic view of this season and my official call. Up next, my pessimistic view.




Hckyplayer8's '11/'12 Season Expectations *Updated versions may be available later


-Goalie controversy continues. Bryz sucks ****. Bob takes over but still has growing pains and falls off near the end of the year. Leighton brought back and fans suicides begin.
-Pronger suffers more injuries. He and everybody realizes he is an old fart and may as well be Gagne as he is so injury prone anymore. Competes in 40 Reg. Season games.
-Roo slumps and posts a personal worst of 25 pts.
-Jagar becomes a cancer to the team. He regrows his mullet and blames Richard and Carter for the teams performance.
-Danny posts a team best of 65pts. Realizes this is a Philadelphia team and wants to be traded.
-JVR's explosive break out season goes mediocre when he battles through constant injury.
-Simmonds will continue to use slurs much to the Rangers despise. The NHL will cover him by editing "The Circle of Life" Lion King track over any slurs he uses.
-Simmonds, Vorachek have solid years but don't immediately fill the void left by Richie and Carter....they likely post around 30-35 pts each
-Read gets shipped to the AHL were some goon takes off his head. He quits and takes up golf.
-Rinaldo delivers a clean North to South check with his elbows tucked in. Shanahammer bans him for for a few games but he goes loko and threats Shanny. Shanny takes this personally and bans him for life despite Cooke and Bertuzzi still being in the league

Overall Team Standings
W- 25
L- 55
OTL-2
P-57

The league makes fun of us for blaming our troubles on "party boys" Richards and Carter. Richards win the cup in his first year as a king. The league points and laughs.



Discuss.

89 points will not get us the 4th seed in the East.

Can we all make our own threads with our in-depth season predictions? Mods?

haha, I think just this one will do.

We should all probably post our expectations in here so we can revisit them later on for a laugh...or cry, depending on what happens.

I just hope this season don't end up like the Hindenburg.

I can dig us finishing dead last and Richards, Williams, Zues, and Gagne winning the cup

But then i'll go cry in a corner when we ultimately lose the draft lottery AGAIN.

If you think Giroux will finish with 25 points, you have 0 hockey knowledge. Go away.

Here's a season expectation for 2011/2012:

Hckyplayer8 will shine up his head real nice and then shove it up his anus and fight for air for the entire season. Although, that might already be occurring after reading his predictions for 2011/2012

My pessimistic view. Which was mainly for chuckles.

That's original.

Even more original than telling you to blow me.

It's become clear that this thread isn't going anywhere.
