Crosby plays over 75 games and everyone forgets about his concussion.

The Edmonton Oilers not only make the playoffs, but they win a round.

Jake Gardiner, instead of suffering from a sophomore slump, finishes in the top ten in defenceman scoring.

The Leafs, by some total miracle, have no goaltending issues all season, and make the playoffs.

Here goes:

Kulemin rebounds and puts up a 25-30-55 year while dominating the boards - everyone in HF loves him again.

Kessel puts up 50 goals

Burke moves at least one if not two of Lombardi / Connelly / Armstrong this summer when the UFA market dries up for a surprisingly decent return (2013 3rd rounder or better)

Gardiner struggles in his sophmore year, HF Boards has him included in every trade proposal and says Burke should be fired for not including him to get Nash. Then the next year he rebounds, becomes a top pairing guy, and the same HF Posters all claim how they always knew he'd be good, and want to build a statue in his honor.

Burke picks up a goalie that surprises everyone, Reimer rebounds and we have a solid 1-2 punch in net. Scrivens gets traded for a forward prospect.

Biggs has a great year in the OHL, and everyone on HF boards has him pencilled in to the Leafs for the 2013/2014 lineup.

The Leafs finnish 6th in the conference, lose in the second round of the playoffs as one of the youngest teams in the league, with solid contributions from our prospects. Mess then states how it doesn't count be a) we didn't draft guys like Gardiner and Aston, and b) Burke traded two firsts for Kessel, which means that obviously everything else is tainted.

Schenn becomes a solid shut down beast for Philly, and JVR puts up a 25-35-60 season for Toronto while playing in 75 games.

All I want to know is how much acid that dude has done in his life time to come up with something like that.... because clearly, I didn't do enough when I was younger!

Armstrong - Stays the same
Bozak - Stays the same, injured
Brown - Stays the same, injured
Connolly - Improves a lot
Crabb - Stays the same
Grabovski - Stays the same
Kadri - Improves a little, more games, injured
Kessel - Declines a bit, injured
Kulemin - Improves, still less than 2010 though
Lombardi - Improves a little
Lupul - Stays the same, no injuries
MacArthur - Stays the same, injured
Rosehill - Stays the same
Steckel - Stays the same
Riemsdyk - Stays the same, injured

Franson - Improves a little, injured
Gardiner - Improves a little
Gunnarsson - Declines a bit, injured
Komisarek - Improves a little, still inconsistent
Liles - Stays the same, injured
Phaneuf - Stays the same

Reimer - Improves a little, 22-17-6
Scrivens - Improves a lot, 18-14-5

-91pt season
-No playoffs with current goalies.
-Playoffs a certainty with Luongo, if traded for before season starts.
-If Luongo is traded for (Kulemin+Franson/Crabb+2nd Rounder in 2013), playoffs are guaranteed for the next 3 years. If not, no playoffs this year or next year. Playoffs in 2014-2015.
-Kessel is injured early on. Riemsdyk takes the reigns a bit and surprises everyone with his spurts of assertiveness. He's injured mid-season due this assertiveness. Heralded as a sub-hero.
-Kadri gets more games, but is injured in the middle of his season. He comes back to play until the end. He's doubtlessly NHL-ready by the end.
-Kulemin improves to better numbers, but they are less than his 2010 season. Trade bait in 2013 offseason in a package with Scrivens and third rounder.
-Gardiner steadily improves. Fans still boo him everytime he circles around for another cycle in the Leaf zone.
-Reimer improves a little, but his sv% is still lower than average. Many of his wins come from close games where goal totals are above average.
-Scrivens improves a lot (NHL) with a higher sv% than Reimer. Most of his wins are close games where the shooting percentages and goal totals are lower than average.

Hopefully I'm doing the title justice.

Luongo scores an empty net goal for Toronto against Vancouver in game 7 next year.

Gustavsson plays with Winnipeg, and together with Pavelec win the Vezina and Jennings trophy's.
However, they're eliminated in the first round by the Leafs in four backed by Marty Brodeur and 238 consecutive shutout minutes.

Supposed to be a "rediculous prediction". Easy "Leafs win cup".

Let's not go overboard now, that's well beyond really stupid. Speaking of which, would it be possible to merge the Kessel walking thread into this?
