how about we wait and see if any of those are even accurate?

EDIT: just to clarify, are you speculating on big moves the CAN teams could make, or asking which is the biggest move of the 7 predictions you listed?

I see the Leafs getting their man Clarksson. Nj is in financial disarray. Nj will be out of the Bernier running.
Philly after recent moves won't pursue Bernier. Leafs don't have any interest either. Leafs will trade Liles to the Islanders to replace Streit. They may take back some cash. Leafs then offer a deal to Mason Raymond. They will go after Scuderi but his wife chooses to remain in the US.
Canucks trade Booth for a bag of pucks and buyout Ballard.
They fail to replace Raymond. Ryder turns down an offer from them. They get stuck with two # 1 goalies.
Montreal signs Brunner and Fillipupla
Jets get Horton and Boyes
NHL announces a new franchise in Quebec and immediately rewards the # 1 pick first overall in the 2013 draft to them. They don't start play until 2014 though.
They end up dealing the pick to Edmonton. Edmonton passes on Jones to select MacKinnon because you can never have enough centers.
Edmonton finally gets size by signing Antropov as a free agent.

Habs take the DiPietro buyout off NYI hands, drop them #25, #55, Kaberle & Weber, net Niederreiter & move up 10 spaces in the first round of the 2013 draft to #15, drafting Anthony Mantha...also sign Stalberg for 3 years/3 mill per.

Leafs buyout Komisarek, fail at Clarkson (stays in Jersey), overpay Kadri (who, as it turns out, isn't their answer at #1C), don't trade for Luongo (Reimer & Scrivens each have so-so years), draft Frederik Gauthier at #21, and miss the playoffs.

Sens do nothing of note, draft Robert Hagg at #17, and continue along their merry way to another 2nd round playoff exit.

The 'Peg go all-in on Weiss being able to play with Kane (it doesn't go as planned), draft Bo Horvat at #13, and miss the playoff again.

Flames rebuild (slowly, painfully), draft Sean Monohan at #6, Zack Fucale at #22, and Steve Santini at #28.

Oilers, while having all the young talent in the world, still suck & miss the playoffs...everyone knows they're drafting Darnell Nurse at #7, so we need not talk about it.

"Nucks draft Madison Bowey at #24, sign Filppula, dump Luongo on the Panthers for a snow cone machine and not much else, Schnieder has a very up-and-down year, and they are swept in the first round by the Ducks.

Oilers actually making an attempt to assemble an NHL caliber roster and try to win games.

Not sure how they will do it, but have a feeling the acceptance and almost encouragement of losing is going out the door with Tambo.

Lots of changes in Edmonton I suspect either way they will be major players.

Wouldn't hate this. Basically, this means all our young kids would get another 1st round series win under their belts, continue their development.

As for the Sens, I think while there is a chance Murray goes out and pulls the trigger for a top-line winger, adding a guy like Briere is a realistic, if not boring, scenario. Murray will make a trade, but he's got a hole on the blueline with Gonch leaving to Dallas, and if anything, 2013 proved we have a scoring defecit up front, too.

Sesn will probably be decently active. Oilers & Canucks will be the two most active among Canadian teams as far as big pieces are concerned.

IN ORDER OF MOST ACTIVE TO LEAST ACTIVE:
(my best guess, at least)
1) Edmonton will make a big, splashy, risky trade to try to push them into the playoffs. MacT is going to pull the trigger on a big deal, and also some over-the-top UFA signing. Maybe they risk a Bryzgalov deal?

2) Something needs to happen in Vancouver to address the Luongo situation. Also, after getting swept, I don't think that Luongo and Vigneault will be the only casualties this offseason for the Canucks.

3) Sens will make a trade, for sure. What I'm not sure of, is whether it'll be for a forward or a defenceman. Also, not sure if we're trading "futures" (draft picks, non-roster prospects currently in the system) or one of Zibanejad/Silfverberg/Other roster players in order to make that trade.

4) Toronto needs a center to replace Bozak, they'll go after Weiss, or Richards if he's bought out. Most of that team's core is set though. Clarkson would be their blockbuster add, if you consider David Clarkson as a "blockbuster".

5) Calgary will probably go the Florida route for a few years (pick up some underperforming vets to plug holes in the hope they can find their game again, then trade them for picks at the deadline, all the while letting their kids develop) and aim for the playoffs in ~2015-16.

6) Winnipeg... I have no idea. They're probably scared off of bringing in a big name guy after the Jokinen contract last year. They might move a blueline piece, but I think their big moves won't come until next year, after they test the waters in the West and figure out what they will need to add to compete in a much tougher division. Just a gut feeling.

7) Montreal overachieved this year (compared to where everyone thought they'd be... chill Habs fans, I'm not knocking your team here), they'll probably just tread water as far as major additions go and hope that their young guys (Patches, Eller, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Subban, Beaulieu, Tinordi) can continue to improve.

Vancouver will offload a goalie.
Edmonton will deal a forward for a defencemen.
Toronto/Calgary/Ottawa/Montreal will do nothing major.

Ottawa signs Briere as a UFA and acquires Dan Boyle at the draft.

I heard again this morning that Bozak contract talks are not going well (apparently, he thinks he's worth 5mil), so while i'd take Clarkson.....Nonis better be looking at centers very hard.....Mr.Weiss....paging Mr.Weiss.

Edmonton: acquires a legit #1 goalie (like a Miller/Luongo type)
Calgary: moves Tangs or Cammy for prospect/picks
Winnipeg: trades Burmi and Kane for veteran goal scoring and leadership (like a Kesler type)
Montreal: moves Markov now that value is high again to move up in draft
Toronto: ha ha ha ha ha
Ottawa: signs or trades for a #3 or #4 defenceman
Vancouver: trades Luongo and gets a lot more than most on here think they will

Don't think the Habs do anything big. Our "biggest" move will be drafting 6 times in the top 90.

Leafs will mainly get rid of some salary but I see a few decent moves arising.

-Liles to NYI for a 3rd and a 6th.

-Grabovski gets bought out, ends up in Calgary.

-Leafs slightly overpay for Clarkson.

-Nonis tries at Weiss but ultimately fails.

-Scrivens gets traded to Edmonton (hometown-ish) for a 2nd or a prospect.

-Sign Emery

-Gardiner gets traded for Sean Couturier

-Leafs trade Komisarek to NYI for RDP and the #15

-Leafs trade down from #21 to get #26 and #44 from Anaheim

-Leafs draft Max Domi at #15, Madison Bowey at #26, Justin Bailey at #44, and Eric Comrie at #51

-Amnesty buyout RDP

JVR - Kadri - Kessel
Lupul - Couturier - Kulemin
Frattin - Colborne - Clarkson
Orr - McClement - D'Amigo

Phaneuf - Rielly
Franson - Fraser
Blacker - Gunnarsson

Reimer
Emery

One of the big 4 or a couple of high draft picks in Edmonton gets traded for a #1 defenceman.

Luongo gets traded to...Philadelphia for picks.

For Ottawa I think we'll trade Jared Cowen, Milan Michalek and this year's 1st to Anaheim for Bobby Ryan. Also we'll sign Danny Briere in free agency.

Also I think Edmonton will surprise everyone at the draft by trading Jordan Eberle, their 1st rounder this year to a team for a stud defenseman.

So Philly buys out Briere and Bryzgalov to acquire the contract of Luongo? Addition by subtraction at its finest.
