    Doesn't just have to be about points.
    I feel Blues fans are going to like Bozak and the offence that he bring but may be scratching there heads at times with his effort in his own end.

    Everyone on Buffalo will be ECHL level players. Tavares will get 200 points. :sarcasm:

    In all seriousness, I think Galchenyuk will have a great season now that he is out of the pressure cooker.

    I'm not a Blues fans, but I'm very confident Ryan O'Reilly rules, and that Blues Fans will hate Tyler Bozak by January.

    Tavares is the obvious answer here. Could also see Hoffman having a big year for some reason. Not really sure what to expect from Karlsson honestly, going to be quite an adjustment not being forced to carry your team on one foot. Hoping to see Hamilton shutup some of his haters here in Calgary.

    Training camp is tough to gauge but on the Flames I'm loving Hanifin and Czarnik so far, I'm still waiting on Neil and Lindholm.

    Tavares with marner will be deadly. I think patches will do well

    The Avs social media and broadcast team have already scheduled Matt Calvert's jersey retirement night. I expect him to be a slightly better Blake Comeau.

    Even when he had 29 goals in Detroit? We could use trash like that.

    13-14 0.53 ppg 0.26 gpg
    14-15 0.68 ppg 0.35 gpg
    15-16 0.56 ppg 0.26 gpg
    16-17 0.56 ppg 0.30 gpg
    17-18 DET 0.45 ppg 0.26 gpg VGK 0.30 ppg 0.20 gpg

    Pretty consistent 20-20 player except last year in Vegas.

    It seems like the Blues are going to staple ROR-Tarasenko together. So he’s certainly going to have the opportunity to flourish offensively.

    I get the feeling Hinostroza might surprise some people this year

    I can see Galchenyuk having a 30-30 60pts season this year. Especially if he's with Keller and has a good goal scorer flanking him on the other side.

    Also i can see Patches putting up 35g+ with Vegas simply because he's going to have an actual C to play with

    Pacioretty looks terrific in Vegas so far. Already showing good chemistry with Stastny, Tuch, and Haula. Whoever ends up being the second winger on that line is gonna gel well with him it seems.

    And every interview he's done he seems really excited and happy to be here.

    Yeah I didn't mean that insult to be directed at his stat columns, he just plays like Boedker, soft and invisible most of the game.

    He's been pretty implicated in the preseason games so far, hopefully he turned a new leaf and it continues.

    Flyers fans will like the new JVR, except @Beef Invictus of course.

    Blues Fans will be Meh to Bozak.

    Islanders Fans will HATE Komarov.

    I can't imagine why given where he came from.
