RNH - 2013/14 Predictions

A comparison of his first two seasons:

2011-12 Rookie season: 18G, 34A, 52 Pts in 62 games. 0.84 ppg

2012-13 Sophomore season: 4G, 20A, 24 pts in 40 games. 0.60 ppg

After a tremendous rookie season, RNH's sophomore season didn't go as well. A bit of a sophomore slump? Just bad luck around the net? Injured shoulder giving him problems? Playing against harder competition? Less offensive zone starts? Maybe it was a combination of everything. His assists totals were roughly the same (0.55 vs 0.50 assists per game) but his goal totals dropped by quite a significant amount (0.29 vs 0.10 goals per game).

During his rookie year, he was lights out on the PP and we even heard some comparisons to the Great One in terms of his on ice vision and playmaking. Last season, he wasn't as effective on the PP and just didn't seem to have the same confidence as he had during his rookie year. The scoring opportunities were still there for him, but many of his Grade A scoring chances in the slot often ended up wide of the net or off the post. If he had buried a few of those chances, his stats wouldn't have been as far off as his first year. But one positive from last year was that I thought his defensive game improved a great deal and he's really developing into a great 2way Centre.

So what are your guy's prediction for RNH next season? We all saw how well Hall played after having shoulder surgery. Can we expect RNH to rebound and do the same? My prediction is that he'll get around 0.75 ppg (15g, 45A).

75 games 23 goals 54 assists

His even strength ppg actually INCREASED last year despite facing much tougher competition and getting less offensive zone starts. The addition of Gordon will allow him to face easier competition and get more offensive chances, that alone should put him back to his rookie pace. RNH's shooting percentage was literally unsustainably low last year, he'll definitely bury some of those missed chances this season. Expect the power play numbers to be somewhere inbetween his rookie season/last season. He was creating chances last year, but was always the "third assist". Better luck+more experience+easier competition is a ppg player.

Audacious, but let's be realistic here.
Playing between 40 goal Hall and 30 goal Yakupov?

20 G 67 A 87 points!

I hope 0.85 - 0.90 ppg. That's not a prediction though.

We need 100 goals out of our top line to make the playoffs.

We need 40-45 from Hall, 30-35 from Yak and 20-25 from Nuge.

He can get that easily. If hall has a 90+ season it's pretty much gauranteed that nuge will be around PPG with being the quarterback on the PP.

Edit: just wanted to point out how much better he is than every other prospect in the world. At the WJC, even with his injury i believe he factored into 90% of canada's offence outside of the 1st game. If he wasn't on the ice, Canada wasn't scoring.

Another injured plagued season is a good bet at this juncture. I hope I'm wrong.

Lets remember that his rookie season injury was from tripping and falling into the boards awkwardly. I don't even think it was during play. If he can get that evasive confidence back, then he'll just never get hit. He got knocked down about 3 times that season, if that. I'm not too worried about injury problems with him.

Lets also remember how snakebit he was this season. Especially in the first dozen games or so he was hitting posts every night. I predict/hope he'll be scoring a lot more this coming season. One interesting thing about having this young core is that each season they'll come back a little better, a little stronger, and compound that with synergy. Man synergy is a ruined word. I'm sorry.

How is it a good bet?

He's had 1 injury issue that's been with him since jr, that's finally been taken care of this off season. An Injury could always happen to anyone, but to say its a good bet is like saying its a good bet hall is going to mess his shoulder up again.

I have no doubt rnhs shoulder injuries are behind him, and hopefully we can see what he's really Capable of this season.

15g 55 assists for 70 points is my guess

He's not going to come out of the gate strong, due to his shoulder injury. I think 40-50 points is reasonable.

He needs to be a threat to shoot on the powerplay.. everyone is just going to cover a guy when they know he is just going to try and force a pass to one of them while not even thinking to drive it to the net

Agreed, and he does have an underated shot. Just needs to be more confident in using it.

Other way around. Yakupov is the 40 goal guy, while Hall will get 30!

Hopefully he plays with Perron and Eberle; which for me a combination of Perron's competitiveness, a bounce-back from Eberle, and most importantly: better health for himself leads me to believe that 20-45-65 is reasonable.
