The purpose of this thread is to make a bold prediction for the coming season. I'm not interested in how you think the team as a whole will perform, but what individual player or aspect of play (special teams, face offs, etc.) will surprise? Both a positive and a negative.
For me, my prediction is that by the end of the season, Emelin will be one of our top 3 defencemen. He will be logging 22+ minutes per game, and will be relied on as the team heads into the playoffs as one of our top pairing guys.
I also think that Cole will prove to be a disappointment for the fans. I think he will produce similar to Trevor Linden: a lot to be desired on the scoresheet, but probably contribute in the lockerroom. I also think he gets dealt within the first 3 years of his contract.
Pacioretty will lead the team in goals.
Markov will lead the team in assists.
After x-mas Eller will start to outplay Gomez but won't get the increase in minutes and Weber will outplay Spacek but won't get the increase in minutes.
Spacek will be traded for Tomas Kaberle
Cammalleri will be traded in between periods
Kostitsyn will get traded for less than Paul Gaustad
Markov will be MIA until March
Gomez will score 2 goals
Subban will be healthy scratch
Cole will score 35 goals
Martin will be fired as the team is turning the corner
Man, why do we bother to predict anything. Cant wait for next years craziness
