Gardiner for Calder.
Tampa misses the playoffs.
Phoenix finishes 28th, but some other team wins draft lottery so they get bumped down to 4th in the draft. They draft Mikhail Grigorenko, who, faced with the prospect of playing for Phoenix, bolts to the KHL. Phoenix is moved to Quebec within 2 years.
Reimer never regains his level of play from last season and turns into Pogge/Gus 2.0. Gus fares no better and eventually Scrivens gets called up and plays exactly like Reimer did at the end of last season giving us Deja Vu and starting a perpetual cycle of goalies coming out of nowhere and being amazing and then eventually busting when the pressure is on the following season. Add Rynnas/Owuya repeat next year.
I love this thread. I'm usually the one to call out people on extremely unlikely situations, but what the hey, this seems fun haha.
Grabovski to hit 70 points.
Kessel to hit 70+ points with 40+ goals.
Gardiner/Frattin get at least a nomination for ROY depending on who stays and who goes.
We trade for Hemsky (ORSP right? Let's play along with Eklund )
We make 6th in the East and are eliminated in the 2nd round by WSH in 7 games.
Let's hope I can act like a hero at the end of the season for at least 2 of these.
Ovechkin Gets 100 Goals
Matt Duchene gets 100 points and leafs Avs back to playoffs
Cody Hodgson cracks the canucks line-up and wins RotY
After the leafs trade komiserek and one of our defensemen get injured, gardiner is put into the line up and gets 35 points in only 60 games
Mcarthur gets 35 points
!The return of the monster!
And Finally the craziest of them all. The leafs end up in 9th place losing out on 8th by one point to the Jets.
Mats Sundin will return to be the #1 center for the Leafs, and he will divorce his wife and marry Garbs in a lavish ceremony at center ice at the ACC, with mooseOAK as best man and LeafsGuru as bridesmaid.
Connolly plays a full season and propels Kessel into the 50 goal range.
Lombardi also plays most of the season winning the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy
Leafs make the playoffs and win 2 rounds losing to Buffalo.
Wilson wins jack Adams Award and gets 5 year extension
Buffalo wins the Stanley Cup vs the Oilers.
personal: I avoid yet another speeding ticket using the excuse of hearing about "the Verteeg trade". Whereby the Officer laughs and only says "bag of pucks" while handing my license back to me. (true story)
