1) Will Gagne hit 40 goals? (8 more goals, absolutely, as long as he plays 15 more games)

2) Will Gagne hit 50 goals? (If he's healthy, he'll get around 55, imo)

3) Will Forsberg play 65+ games? (Hopefully yes, i'd say around 70-72)

4) Will Pitkanen finish with 40 points? (23 already, 40 easily, he'd have gotten 70 if he played all year, imo)

5) Will Pitkanen finish with 50+ points? (probably not, 27 points in 38 games is asking a lot, but if he turns around our PP then he'll come close)

6) Will our rookies' production improve after the Olympic Break? (absolutely, especially Carter, imo)

7) Will Nedved be shipped out by the trade deadline? (if he doesn't produce, i think he'll be waived)

8) Will the Flyers acquire another defenseman by the trade deadline? (yes...i'd be shocked if they didn't acquire someone they wanted to be in their top 6, they know they need 8-10 d-men for the playoffs).

70 pts for a defensman? Nicklas Lidstrom was the last one to do it and for Joni to do that at twenty-two....that would be jaw dropping. I'm just hoping he comes back hungry and with full mobility.

I honestly think he was capable of that with the way he was playing. Remember that Joni got off to a pretty slow offensive start, which caused some to question his offensive ability. He then turned it on in a big way and was close to a PPG when he was injured. This is the 2nd season that he's shown he can flat out carry a PP (his rookie season he was the one change to a PP that went from bottom 10 to top 2) and I don't see any reason why he would've stopped producing offensively. Even with missing 20 games, I could still see him eclipsing that 50 point barrier because he's just so good offensively, but only if Forsberg is healthy. His offensive upside is higher than any d-man in the game, imo.

The thing that his injury has really shown me is that he is without a doubt the 2nd most important player to the Flyers success. The Flyers are forced to play a different style when he's not in the lineup. When he's on the ice he is always a threat, I can't wait to get him back in the lineup as full strength.

6) Will our rookies' production improve after the Olympic Break? yes

7) Will Nedved be shipped out by the trade deadline? will clear waivers

8) Will the Flyers acquire another defenseman by the trade deadline? yes

I guess I'm optomistic. Although all the point predictions, the players are well on pace to exceed those totals.

McCabe, Visnovsky, Lidstrom, Zubov, and Kaberle are all (if healthy) on pace for 70pt seasons this year. It's the new NHL so anythings possible. I think if Pitkanen would have stayed healthy he would have hit it, IMO.
