Had to change the Kane/points and goal-scoring question. Habit has you go off an 82-game schedule. I had to adjust it to make more reasonable for 48 games.

8/ How many points will Kane get?

9/ Who will win the Calder trophy?

Saying that for a mix of reasons:

1. He played overseas and might be more ready than others

2. Giving a lot of importance to divisional play and the fact that Northeast is average strong this year

3. Just taking a wild guess just so that I feel extremely proud if I was right

/\ You have Kane pegged for 21 goals and 14 assists (for 35 points)?

The 21 goals would be fantastic but I expect Kane to have twice the number of assists than goals. 21g – 42a = 63 pts. And in only 48 games. Now we’re talking!

Bump.

Training camp should open on Sunday. Still debating whether to change my choice for the Calder trophy.

Also, if someone could PM me the Hockey Pool Rules and format, I’d appreciate it.

And btw, there’s a rumour that Comcast and others are going to offer up a free Center Ice package for this season.

That's going off the assumption Kane will be with Toews and since Toews is a notoriously slow starter I think Kane takes it upon himself to pot the goals.
