Hejduk

Will he bounce back? Who will he play with? What kind of production can we expect from him (G-A-Plus/Minus)?

Throw him on Lando & O'Reillys line and i think that's the best chance he has for a bounceback year. Don't forget that he was playing quite well until the captaincy and now has had an offseason to better prepare himself for leading this team.

Yeah, he will bounce back but not in the way people are going to be expecting or necessarily happy with. Now that he is over the hill, his role has changed - he is no longer on the team to be the sniper of old. As long as he manages to keep up with the young guys and isn't a defensive liability, I'll be happy seeing the mentor out there for 10-15 minutes a night.

He will be better than last year. Probably playing with Duchene to start the year.

I think he'll put up about 40-50 points assuming he plays at least 60-70 games.

I don't think so, but I can always hope.

He didn't look like he had all that much in the tank last year. He works hard enough but he's not the player he was.

I have to say, I agree but don't really have to much faith that he will rebound. At least not that he can play top 6 minutes.

I think he will be fine getting some offensive starts and power-play time. Kind of like an offensive role player...

Whats encouraging is that he looked ok on the fourth line at the end of last season. So even with limited minutes it shouldn't be a waste.

Agreed. O'Reilly is the better choice.

As long as he can do another 20 goal season I'll be happy. Even if it's the only 20 points he gets all year

Even as a Canuck Killer, I can't help but like Hejduk when not playing against the Canucks.

I hope to see him bounce back, would be nice to see one last 20 goal season from Hejduk.

I actually think he does bounce back.

I think he'll probably start the season with Duchene and Parenteau and with PA alone, that should allow him to snipe a bit more than he did last year.

Now before everyone freaks out and says "OMGZZZ that line is not going to be good enough defensively", I truly believe that Sacco won't be breaking up the Stastny or the RoR line to start the season. Therefore as a 3rd line or 1C if you prefer, in theory they should be playing against the bottom pairing on the other side and that's where the challenge will be for other teams.

So when matching up against a line of Kotsopolous-Blair Jones-Comeau, we shouldn't be too worried about getting scored on and instead push them to try and defend us. (I know what you're thinking...BLAIR JONES!!!!)

Obviously, we're going to need a better commitment from Duchene to play a more involved 2-way game than we saw last year but I think we ARE going to see that anyways.

I think the Duke bounces back with another 20 goal season and between 45-55 points.

I don't expect anything from him this season so anything he does is a bonus.
