_____ Will have a Breakout Year

It's that time again, and now that my pick from the last two seasons (Dvorak) is gone, its time for a new one..

I say Dan LaCouture will have a breakout year for the New york Rangers..

15-20 goals.. 35-40 points..

Who's YOUR pick??

Jamie Lundmark.
He finally has a positioin nex to Holik.
I think he'll get around 45-55 points.

Also, look for Jan Hlavac's point total to be similar to that of 2000-2001.

Lundmark will have a year proving he's a NHL regular.

Dominic Moore will have a breakout year......in the minors.

Everybody except for Lundmark is already "out" considering their ages and experience so the player with the COMEBACK year is Jan Hlavac. If Kovie and Nedved play during the regular season like they did in the pre-season then Honzo(!) can just stand in the left circle all shift just fanning his stick along the ice and he'd accidently deflect a pass from Nedved to Kovalev and into the goal at least 50 times.

break out and come back are too totally different areas.

Break out is Lundmark. 17 goals and 20 assists for 37 points.

comeback is Hlvac 23 goals, 29 assists and 52 points.

biggest disappointment = Rucisnky 14 goals, 17 assists for 31 points.

half good,half bad = lindros 29 goals, 36 assists for 65 points.

disappears when it counts = carter 22 goals, 34 assists, 56 points.

surprise of the season Jussi who seriouly challanges dunham for the starter spot especially around november when dunham gets a muscle pull and needs some time off and his play slips a little.

Breakout: Has to be Lundmark, as argued above.

Comeback: Hopefuly Lindros.

Lundmark-Holik-Dvo played really well before Devo was traded. Lets hope that a replacement can be found for Devo. I think Lundmark can put in 45-55 points becuase Holik has above average skills offensively.

Also, he would get a lot more points if he played left wing for Nedved-Kovy.

I think they were only together for four daysa before Dvorak was traded.
One game that really sticks out was a game against Philly where the Rangers won 5-1. Holik had a hat trick, Dvorak had 3 assists, and Lundmark got a goal and assist.

i just cant see lacouture getting the kind of numbers some people are expecting. 10 goals (12) is doable i think with some good fortune and icetime but i cant see 34 points, that getting up there now.

at best Lacouture gets 12 goals, 10 assists 20 some odd points.

34 is more in the ethan moreau, mark bell checking winger type mold and both those guys are a step above him.

Question: Can Barnaby and a low pick land Peter Schafaer from Ottawa? He'd fit beautifully on the left side of Holik.

I don't know if your referring that to me but I know the difference between the two. My point being that the only Ranger player that could qualify for a breakout year would be Lunmark and possibly Markannen. All the other guys have had success at one point in their careers already (most before their current stint with NYR) so they would qualify under comeback.

BTW I agree with Edge on Dlac and I while I think Lundmark will have a decent year where he chips in some goals and has good all around play I don't think he'll necessarily have a breakout year which I consider to be +25 goals and +55 pts. Still I'll put in an early vote though for Lundmark having a breakout year in 2005.

I'm gonna say Lundmark too. I think his points production will be less impressive than his overall committment to the game.

Breakout?

I think a number of players will get to near the level/production they were at in previous years, but breakout? I think only Lundmark is in a positions to 'break out' at this point - and him breaking out can be as easy as a 15+ goal campaign. Everybody, save Lacouture, has already been there.

"I just cant see lacouture getting the kind of numbers some people are expecting."

K-N-U-B-L-E seriously though I cant either sepecially on fourth line ice time, I see Lundy doing good as well, pretty obvious as he is the only option.....

I would love to see Lacouture...

break out with a 15 goal, 30 assist season, but I'm not sure he has it in him. He wasn't much of a scorer in the AHL, and hasn't been much of one in the NHL, obviously. He can scrap for garbage, but there's only so much garbage he'll see on the fourth line, and without any PP time, his goal totals will be limited. If he plays with Holik and Lundmark, he very well may approach 20 or so assists, but his goal totals will be around 10, I believe. And to be honest, if you can get 10 goals from him, near 20 for Jamie and Holik AND they can shut down top lines, these Rangers will be ahead of the game.

The only chance for a break-out year is Lundmark...And I was pretty optimistic about him reaching 20-25 goals playing with HOlik and Barnaby...But with Sather dicking around Barnaby and MY gut feeling that Lundmark will be the sacrtfical lamb after the slow start, I'm a little less confident in the prediction...But we shall see..

Of the others , I see very little chance of anybody breaking out or exceeding their previous levels..No youngsters will be given a chance and the other players just aren't that good..Yes, the Czechs and Kovalev will score, but will they play two-way?.....I see no eveidence of Lindros waking from his stupor and his play will make it hard for Carter to "break out"..And Rucinsky is always inconsistent....

Actually there is one guy that I see beating his previous best (Not necessarily in numbers) and that is De-vries...The guy is a steady two-way player and still in the upswing in his career and if Leetch comes back, he should be in a real comfortable spot to play some of the best hockey of his career..

If he's playing with Holik and Lundmark, the potential is there for more.

Exactly.. I don't know why were talking about defintions of "breakout year" but I just think that the potential is there for LaCouture to have a career year..

DeVries is a good pick as well.. And Keefe was another one of my "dark horses" but I'm not too sure how much time he'll see..
