    Really guys? That is your reply rather than actually making predictions. Well done derailing a thread.

    No Pred reaches 40 points, team finishes dead last in the NHL, leads the league in being shut out, Trotz is fired 3/4 of the way, loses the lottery and picks 2nd overall

    As the waters of the Cumberland rise and turn red with blood. The all consuming waves carry the arena team and all, reversing flow backwards up to Canada where the team obviously belongs.


    Or they eek a playoff seed, ride Rinne like a mule to the SCF

    Some pretty bold predictions there, Atkinson makes a lot of sense. I see good things coming from him this year and in the future. So why Anaheim? I am just curious, not saying you are wrong.

    Predsha picking Faulk is another great pick. The guy could be better than Josi.

    Preds will be better than doom and gloom members throw out.

    Finish 2nd in division behind Chicago all while splitting season games with them.

    I agree with some that Weber finally wins the Norris.

    Leading goal scorer: Smith
    Points: Cullen
    Surprise: Ellis
    Disappoints: Horny

    Stanley Cup: Senators over Sharks

    If Smith is our leading goal scorer I cant imagine anything Ellis does being a bigger surprise

    This is true.

    If Smith is leading anything other than most time in the doghouse, it will be a surprise.

    Waiting on others predictions before judging others. Ellis would not have to do much since most hf experts have written him off. True if Smith leads in goals he will be a surprise.

    It's obvious Smith is in position to have a big year which makes Ellis the bigger wild card and surprise.

    I cant predict all of the standings and trophy winners so I'll just stick to the Preds

    I think we get the three spot in the division and have a hard fought playoff series with the Blues that we win, before losing in 6 games to Chicago in round two
    (the current playoff format is really going to hinder us getting beyond round 2 unless Chicago gets a lot worse in the near future)

    Weber does finally win the Norris, Rinne is nominated for the Vezina and loses again, Trotz is again nominated for the Adams but doesnt win, Poile nominated for GM of the year but again doesnt win, Forsberg, not Jones, is our Calder nominee but he loses to Mackinnon who has insane stats in Colorado because they lose every game 7-6

    Forsberg is our biggest surprise, Ellis is our biggest disappointment, Smith plays well enough to secure his spot in the lineup, Stalberg doesnt disappoint but isnt as good as many hope(ie about 20 goals). Wilson continues to progress, and as he did the last time he played for a contract, Legwand has a big year(25 goals).

    Horns style of play finally starts to catch up to him and he misses a lot of this season but Beck fills in nicely.

    Spaling is traded because Smith improves and Beck plays well in Horns absence.

    We trade for a veteran D-man at the deadline.

    LA beats Chicago in the WCFs and beats Boston for the Cup.

    Rinne and the Finns are surprise silver medalists in the Olympics, losing to another surprise, Sweden(and FF makes the team based on a strong NHL season). USA beats a bitterly disappointed Russia for the bronze. Canada fails to medal due to goaltending.

    Going to keep it simple.

    We finish 10th in the old Western Conference and 5th in the Central behind CHI, STL, MIN, DAL. The Pacific #4 has enough points so we miss the playoffs. No individual awards to any Pred. Anaheim wins the Cup.

    Goals = Smith (shocking!)
    Points = Wilson
    Most Surprising = Ellis (he seems to have picked up his game) or Nystrom
    Kevin Klein Goat Award for Everything that is Wrong = Gaustad

    I'll keep it just to Preds too.

    Hornqvist is our leading scorer.
    Another defenseman in the East wins the Norris
    Stalberg's season is a disappointment, as injuries stack against him.
    Hendricks also struggles.
    Smith does well and Spaling gets a passing grade.
    Ellis gets the Blum treatment and is up and down before being traded for a 4th round pick.
    Overall though, we're a good team and finish 8th or 9th.
    Jones is legit and Josi takes another step to greatness.
    Nystrom goes from whipping boy to crowd favorite.
    Clune makes us forget about Tootoo.
