Those are some lofty expectations for Steps.

well 226 goals - 26 goals from AA/Dubi is 200 goals. Add a full season of Kreider, a better season for Richards, and Nash's 30+ goals (at least). We will be in the 250-260 range. I agree though, no way in hades that Stepan gets 72 pts.

288 goals.

We aren't the 06/07 Sabres.

I don't think 250 is unreasonable.

And you would be correct.

But someone posted 288 GF before. That combined with our D and Hank would lead us to a 72-10 record and sweep through the playoffs.

My first thought to most of your "expectations" were "yeah right"

89 points for rick nash? 72 for stepan?

These aren't "expectations", it's more like "best case scenario"

I can see why you guys are disagreeing with me, didn't realize I had up to 188 goals, haha. I guess that could be lowered. But I'm sticking with Stepan having a huge year.

Nothing wrong with that at all. I'm sure most here are hoping he does as well.

I had low expectations last summer and the Rangers surprised me by performing better than anticipated.

Now I have higher expectations, and I really hope they don't surprise me in a bad way...

I'm not even going to touch individual player stats for the entire team. You have no idea who gets injured/gets called up/moves up and down in ice time/when Gabby gets back... etc etc etc.

I'll just go with the team.

52 - 24 - 6, 110 pts, 1st in Atlantic, 1st in Eastern Conference

242 GF, 2.95/G, 7th in NHL
188 GA, 2.29/G, 2nd in NHL

Win Quarterfinals in 5
Win Semifinals in 4
Win Conference Finals in 7
Win Stanley Cup Finals in 5

It's Stanley Cup or bust for the next three years, the window is open. I don't care about who scores as long as we win.

If we could add one more player to fit our 3rd line needs, Gabby comes back in good form, and we stay healthy.... I expect nothing less than the Stanley Cup.

My expectations last year were a playoff round win or 2. A first seed was a nice surprise, along with the 3rd round appearance. Now I expect a Finals appearance.

Hagelin scores (on pace) 20+ goals and 50+ points
During his first ~40 games as a Ranger, Carl Hagelin was top 20 in the league in ES points per minute and it was no coincidence that whatever line he was on, was the line that played best. He then hit the infamous NCAA wall, and his play petered out until he was almost a complete non-factor in the playoffs. While he doesn't have the hands to be an elite scorer, his speed, tenacity and intelligence makes him a formidable player that makes his linemates better. This year he'll be able to keep up his performance during the whole season.

Other predictions:

Marcel Hrivik plays 30+ games and scores >0.5 PPG.

Callahan scores less than last year on ES, but an improved PP allows him to score ~30-25-55.

Nash and Richards mesh very well together, Nash scores 35+ goals and 70+ points while Richards puts up 80+ points.

While the third line performs admirable defensively, Boyle and Pyatt both score less than 30 points.

Krieder shows flashes of brilliance, but his first full season is inconsistent and he puts up ~20-15-35.

Stepan struggles intitially, but finishes the season very strongly with Gáborík on his wing and ends the season with 55+ points.

McDonagh takes another step offensively and puts up ~40 points.

Pens barely cracked 280 last season. They had 5 guys with 20 or more and Cooke had 19. Malkin/Neal combined for 90 alone.

If Rangers can crack 250 over a full season and with the way our D has played I'd be over the moon.

Based on OP's expectations, we would be the #1 offensive team in the league and the #2 defensive team (assuming the goals for/against around the league stay about the same as they did last year). Our goals for/against differential would be over +100. I've don't remember that ever happening.

Way, way too optimistic.

The reason for the irrational exuberance is the fact that OP (and others) don't want to recognize that someone will have a bad season, as a couple players on every team always do. There might be a realization that it will happen, but it doesn't go into the calculations, either on offense or defense.

The window started last year, and we made it to the ECF...
