The Hockey News: 2013-14 Predictions

Just picked The Hockey News Ultimate Fantasy Pool Guide and thought I'd share what they have about the Leafs:

Forwards:

Kessel - 82 GP, 35G, 50A, 85 Pts
Kadri - 81 GP, 30G, 40A, 70 Pts
Lupul - 68 GP, 23G, 40A, 63 Pts
JVR - 75 GP, 35G, 27A, 62 Pts
Phaneuf - 80 GP, 11G, 35A, 46 Pts
Bozak - 75 GP, 15G, 30A, 45 Pts
Gardiner - 74 GP, 9G, 34A, 43 Pts
Clarkson - 80 GP, 24G, 15A, 39 Pts
Kulemin - 80 GP, 14G, 23A, 37 Pts
Bolland - 78 GP, 17G, 18 A, 35 Pts
Brennan - 78 GP, 7G, 26A, 33 Pts
Franson - 70 GP, 8G, 22A, 30 Pts
Liles - 22 Pts
McClement - 22 Pts
Colborne - 21 Pts
Gunnarsson - 18 Pts
Fraser - 10 Pts

Bernier - 27 Wins, 18 Losses, 6 OTL, 2.35 GAA, .923 SP, 4 SO
Reimer - 15 Wins, 13 Losses, 3 OTL, 2.54 GAA, .917 SP, 3 SO

*They dont do full stats for anyone under 30 pts.

That's very optimistic for both Kadri and Brennan IMO.

Kadri I'd put closer to ~55 points. Brennan.. closer to being a scratch for half the season, and not getting the PP time needed to put up those points.

T.J Brennan is apparently the steal of the off-season

Every game we win will probably be by 3 goals or more

Brennan must be taking Franson's spot on the PP as that is the only way he could finish with more points if both players play a full season.

Found more info on our goalies and added to the OP. Apparently were projected for 93 points based on what our goalies are projected for.

Yeah, Kadri won't be getting 30 goals.

Kessel will get 40.
JVR will get 30.
Lupul ~25-27
Clarkson ~20-25
Kadri ~20

IMO.

They have Leafs top 6 scoring 162 goals

Kessel (35G)
Kadri (30G)
Lupul (23G)
JVR (35G)
Bozak (15G)
Clarkson (24G)

That would be optimistic for the Pens top 6 to get.

A .923 from Bernier would've put him in the top 10 goalies in the league last year. That's a lot to ask from him in his first season in an expanded role, IMO.

He was 9th last year in Even Strength S%.

He had .932 in 14 games. Khabibulin played 12 games and finished with .934, Lehner had .935 through 12 games, Enroth had .931 through 12 as well.

I'm going to err on the side of caution on this one, and not get my hopes up too much.

That looks pretty optimistic for JVR too, 35 goals would be so good from him but I'm not sure he gets that.

Kadri @ 30 goals is silly.

I'm a diehard Leaf fan but 30 for Kadri and 35 for JVR is too optimistic for even me. I think Ranger will put up the points they have for Brennan.

Kadri will likely slump. Im predicting 45-50 points. 15 goals. Subtract 5 goals from JVR and 5 from clarkson. Subtract 10 points from brennan.

Obviously these are pessimistic but I do think this team may have a lull next season.

I also can't imagine Gunnarsson in 6th with 18 points. They must have him playing around 50 games.

not sure if anyone noticed, but 30/70 from kadri is already a predicted regression from his 31/75 pace from last year.

I think 40 goals from Kessel is easily in reach.
