Given the fact that we have way more players capable to playing competent minutes, I'm optimistic about our point totals, but it's not like I think we're making it to the playoffs. I predict we'll draft 10th-12th.
Hall will have a career year.
Hopkins and Eberle will have over 70 points.
Yakupov will get 60.
Perron will have similar totals to last year.
Purcell will have over and LD will have over 50 points.
Pouliot will net around 30ish.
I don't want to predict the point totals for the d-men.
If Justin Schultz is blowing chunks then I predict that Fayne will get over played and he'll end up getting more points than I'd initially expect. I expect Petry to have a career year because Fayne and Nikitin will be playing a lot more of the difficult shutdown minutes if everything goes to plan.
outside perspective who watches about 25ish oiler games a year because of sn/cbc/tsn
Taylor Hall: 88
Jordan Eberle: 64
If you think the defence will score that much get ready to be disappointed the Nikita Nikitin one is pretty unrealistic he did score 32 two years ago but this year he had a grande total of 15 points. And Fayne at 30! He had 17 last year so did petry. Sorry if you are offended by this but you are being super optimistic.
my gut says some of you are overrating the buttersoft Purcell. no way Yak doesn't outscore him.
any I really think there is no way Yak will get some of those low point totals being predicted. I think Eakins has learned from his mistakes and Yak will be handled much better this year.
