Who would have a breakout year?

If we were to have a season this year, who would have a breakout year and who would have a down year?

Breakout year: Price

This would finally be the year where Price consistently steals games and possibly a series. If you look at the development curve of most goaltenders, this is where he is supposed to really breakout.

Down Year: Pacioretty

Success might get to his head a little bit and he may not be as hungry as he was last year. It's really tough to get two 30 goal seasons in a row. And I think Therien would break up that line to help the other lines which would hurt his production.

I guess just proving himself as an NHL regular would be a breakout year for Gallagher. I think, if there is a season, he'll get it done by season's end.

Breakout: Subban

Needs to prove to other fanbases that he's a legit #1 D.

Down year: Cole
We didn't expect him to score as much last year, so I don't expect him to repeat, but he'll still be a 20 goal scorer.

Down Year: Bourque. Looses his spot on the second line but manages around 15 goals on the third along with Eller and Prust/Moen against weaker competition then we expect him to face.

Up Year (not breakout): Colby Armstrong. The defacto Bourque replacement ends up being a decent compliment for Gionta/Pleks. He manages 15-20 (likely closer to 15 but if it happens(ed) early in the season I don't think 20 is impossible), mostly from being in the front of the net for a rebound but also helps to improve Pleks and Gionta's numbers by going into the dirty areas and winning puck battles for them.

I think Cole will be fine. Bouillon won't disappoint expectations for him are already pretty low. He's a 6th/7th D and not what the team needed who will probably play 20 minutes for his bro Therrien and that's what
will be disappointing.

If someone shows some confidence in our young defencemen for once Weber could break out. There is also always one young AHL forward who earns his keep. Maybe Geoffrion or Palushaj.

Breakout
  • Subban proves he is a #1 D
  • Eller hits 20+ Goals and 50+ Points
  • Price steals games, develops himself as the undisputed #1 Goalie for Canada in 2014, and becomes a Vezina candidate
  • Pacioretty hits 40 Goals
  • Leblanc proves that he can be a Top 6 Forward

Down
  • Cole's production drops a bit, still a 25 + Goal guy

Surprises
  • Armstrong plays like he did in Pittsburgh/Atlanta
  • Plekanec has another under-rated season of 60-65 points

Breakout: David Desharnais.
Down: The entire defence squad.

More likely though, Down: Every player in the NHL with a season cancelled.

Breakout: White. Has untapped offensive potential that will be discovered when he ends up playing for a stretch on Plekanec left.

Down: Cole. Shortened season will hurt the vet ability to rebound.

Not sure if serious.

It would be a miracle if any of them surprised us.
