2012-13 point total prediction: Blake Wheeler

We're in the dog days of the offseason, figure this might liven things up. Or not. Whatever.

I'll be setting up a poll every day for each of the Jets players. We'll start with Wheeler, last year's leading scorer. Pick the point total range in the poll, and just for fun predict the:

-games played
-goals scored
-total points

We'll assume a full 82 game schedule is being played.

Wheeler should be able to jack up his goal totals a bit this year, IMO. His 8.2% shooting percentage is bound to improve.

I thought we were assuming full 82...

if full 82 and line usage is similar to last year (AKA he's with Ladd + Little), I'm going for
23G, 50A, 73pts

I can't see him making much more assists with Ladd and Little above his 1.00 A1/60...
But can see more goals with him having sh% of 8.2 and his carreer avg is 10.6

EDIT:

My bad; I get it now... Well last year 80 games was the least for his carreer, so I'll keep it at 82 for Wheeler.

Sorry, should have clarified. Full 82 game schedule. Predict the games played within that full schedule.

Assuming there's a full season and that he either plays the full season or we're prorating his production over a full 82 games, I see him getting 70-74 points. If we have to predict an exact breakdown, I'll go with:

22 G, 50 A, 72 PTS

I don't expect he'll keep up his peak production from last season over a full year, that'd just be unreasonable, but I do expect he'll avoid the long stretch of unproductive play that plagued him throughout the first 20 games or so. The confidence he found in the second half is here to stay IMO. Not only is he the undisputed first-line RW, we don't even have a legit second-line RW. Thus, there's no point predicting if he'll play on a line with Little or Jokinen, IMO - although I'd like to see him tried out with Jokinen first - he'll be paired with whoever is producing at the time and given every opportunity to put up offensive numbers.

I really think the light went on inside the head of Blake Wheeler last season. Even when he wasn't producing he was generating offense, and I think that is going to be his mo again this year.

The only big question mark is potential lockout and/ or injury.

I'm going to guess he stays healthy and we play a whole year

GP 82
G 25
A 52
P 77

Will depend on usage an linemates. A full year with Olli and Kane would probably net him more points than another year with LL.

With OK:
20 G
55 A
75 P

With LL:
23 G
45 A
68 P

50 - 60 assists is a lot guys. His 47 assists last year had him tied with Zetterberg and withing two apples of Getzlaf, Datsyuk, Hossa and St. Louis. If he reaches 50-60, he will be big time and probably an allstar.

Went with 64-69 but I expect him to fall anywhere between 60-70 points. As Jet said, I think the light went on for Blake last year and he really took a step forward and figured out what he had to do to be "the guy". Don't forget, even with his slump to start the year, it was his first full season in terms of getting that legitimate ice time and being a heavily relied upon forward, so he certainly went through an adjustment period to start the year and a big learning curve.

I feel pretty confident in Blake Wheeler, I think we see 60-70 points from him. I think his assists may take a bit of a dip, and his goals may go up a bit. I'll project 25-30 goals, 35-40 assists, give or take.

Somewhere between 60-75 points.

20-25 goals and 40 - 50 assists.

(Chose 64-69)

I see him being around the same as last year. I dont think he can do much better then he did last season.

Wheeler may have the best chance at 70, but I'll say he falls just short at 68 pts. 22 goals and 77 games played.

I think Wheeler can make the PPG pace as long as the team stays relatively healthy. I'm excited at the prospect of Wheeler, Kane and Olli playing on the same line.

Just for you:

It's pretty obvious that his total amount of points will be OVER 9000!

That said:

Games: 82
Goals: 3000
Assists: 6001
Points: OVER 9000

I think it's reasonable to expect 65-69 points from Blake Wheeler. Wouldn't surprise me if he surpassed 70 points.
