2011-2012 season Predictions (players and team)

Taylor Hall
2010-2011 65gp 22g 20a 42p
2011-2012 75 gp 35g 30a 65p

Jordan Eberle
2010-2011 69gp 18g 25a 43p
2011-2012 70 gp 23g 30a 53p

Magnus Paajarvi
2010-2011 80gp 15g 19a 34p
2011-2012 80 gp 18g 22a 40p
(nothing against Paajarvi, just think Smyth and Hall will take away some of Paajarvi's potential PP and EVS time)

Linus Omark
2010-2011 55gp 5g 22a 27p
2011-2012 65gp 10g 25a 35p

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
2010-2011 (WHL) 69gp 31g 75a 106p
2011-2012 (NHL) 9gp 1g 3a 4p
(WHL) 50gp 32g 62a 94p
(RNH playing less games in W due to WJC and spending time with Oilers, those stats projected over the 69 games he played in 10/11 would be 69gp 44g 86a 130p if u were curious)

Ryan Smyth
2010-2011 82gp 23g 24a 47p
2011-2012 70gp 20g 25a 45p

Sam Gagner
2010-2011 68gp 15g 27a 42p
2011-2012 75gp 18g 32a 50p

Ryan Whitney
2010-2011 35gp 2g 25a 27p +13
2011-2012 75gp 10g 37a 47p +10

Tom Gilbert
2010-2011 79gp 6g 20a 26p -14
2011-2012 82gp 8g 27a 35p -2

2011-2012 51gp 21-25-5 2.60 GAA, 0.918 SV%

Nikolai Khabibulin
2010-2011 (Parents, please make sure young children do not see the contents of this next post, as they are horrid) 47GP 10-32-4 3.40 GAA, 0.890 SV%
2011-2012 31GP 11-16-4 3.05 GAA, 0.901 SV%

Pretty realistic expectations, I think.

My only change would be that I think Smyth will basically match his production last season. I'd either up his GP to ~80 or down his points to ~35.

If I had more time before work, I might try and compile a list of projections for the whole roster... maybe another time.

Yea Thanks I figured smyth may wear down a bit because of the roles he may potentially have to fill on PK and PP, it's hard to play all 82 games. I think my expectations for RNH in junior may be a little lofty, but I'd love to see it happen.

I think Hemsky plays 70-75 and Smyth is around 25-25-50 but otherwise I'd say it looks about right

There's always going to be some players regress due to whatever injuries or poor play.

@tyrolean understandable, but sometimes it's difficult to predict who will miss time due to injury. Like who called Hall's or Gagner's injury this time last year? I have almost every player missing at least a bit of time, some (Hemsky) more than others due to history. I had a difficult time seeing anyone regress offensively out of who I listed. I guess if RNH makes the team then Gagners numbbers could drop off a bit. Who do you think will regress based off of just a poor year, and why?

These aren't point predictions but the Oilers made the list for 2 of the 10 2011-2012 predictions Kevin Allen made today in usa today.

2. Whether the Edmonton Oilers are close to competing for a playoff spot is unknown, but they will be exciting. It's easy to project them as an elite Pittsburgh Penguins-style contender by 2013 or 2014. There are a good number of general managers who gladly would trade their team for the Oilers' roster.

4. Edmonton's Ales Hemsky will lead the NHL in trade rumors. Again.

Not bad at all... but I seriously think that Florida has a good shot at finishing ahead of us.

Also: Islanders aren't done making moves yet. If their next big move to get above the cap floor upgrades their blueline I think Edmonton has a shot at 2nd last in the league... a shot.

Wouldn't that honestly be scary. With 1 more year we'd obviously be in pretty good shape at all positions in terms of drafting.

As things are going right now our system has 3 goalies, 4+ solid defensive prospects, 3 solid centers and a couple of wingers. 1 more year in the basement and it's looking pretty scary. We might have to start getting rid of decent players just to stay under the 40 contract limit.

As for your point projections, I think you tried to be very fair and unbiased.

Very cool praise and matches what I feel.

Slight, but exciting miss of the playoffs this upcoming year; and playoffs the next.

I think so.

Cannot wait for the chase.... listening to them dumping in goals on the computer on a cold winters night... I'm ready.

It's going to be tough down the stretch, as we only have 12 players.....

I agree!! We'll finish 8th. Hopefully we play Vancouver so Hall can make Chokeongo flop like a fish and Eager can demolish Kesler and the Sedins.

I've conceded for one more poor season.

With that said, by about the second period of game 1, I'm going to have my expectations drastically rise and the season will either be glorious, or a complete disappointment instead of either glorious or what I expected.

Like the last 5 years.
