    Here's my take... bash away

    Domi 13-33-46
    Kotka 18-30-48
    Drouin 20-39-59
    Tatar 23-22-45
    Danault 14-28-42
    Gally 27-24-51
    Byron 17-15-32
    Peca 7-19-26
    Lehkonen 21-20-41
    Hudon 11-18-29
    Plek 5-17-22
    Armia 16-16-32
    Shaw 8-10-18

    Weber 10-15-25
    Reilly 3-20-23
    Mete 3-22-25
    Petry 12-32-44
    Juulsen 2-6-8
    Schlemko 1-8-9
    Alzer 1-7=8

    So four 20 goal scorers with four more at 15+.

    Do we have any idea about the opening night lines and power play units?

    I think Drouin will be a 60 pts player this year but I might be wrong

    The order I put the forwards in are the possible lines although with so many similar wingers, they're certainly interchangeable.

    What we've seen so far, the first PP unit is Drouin, Tatar, Lekhonen, Gally and Petry. We've seen Kotka, Hudon, Reilly, Mete and others on the second PP. I would assume Domi will be on the second PP as well, maybe Armia also.

    Depends if he stays a winger or not

    I don't think Petry will have as much point as last season. I'd say he's a 30 pts guy. It's the Reilly, Mete and Juulsen that should increase their points total.

    Hudon 24
    Domi-Drouin-Lekh 23
    Kotka 18

    Fair to say they havn't reach their full potantial yet dont you think

    my wish

    Domi-Kotka-Drouin
    Tatar-Danault-Gally
    Byron-Peca-Lekh
    Armia-Plek-Hudon

    But, i think CJ will start the season the way ''odishabs'' said and i tend to agree with his points predictions too......as for the habs points predictions, if Price has a good season i see 98 pts, Price performance this year his for me the big question marks, sure hope he does well

    It is possible for all 7 of those players to hit career highs, as they are all young and improving. It's still unlikely and for some it's unlikely to hit such highs. Tatar's previous high is 56 points when he was playing with Datsyuk. Now, playing in our high octante offensive he's predicted to get 59. Honestly, I believe that's possible, as are all the numbers listed. It just seems every year we project our players to have numbers they don't get to.

    But honestly, deep down, I'm hoping for these kinds of numbers from these players. I like them all and believe in each of them.
    And on top of that I believe in Scherabak and want to give DLR one more chance to see if he doesn't have 30 -40 points in him. Hopefully he can supplant Plekanec and there will be injuries.

    Fair enough, as for Sherbak, he needs to show me a lot more for me to start believing in him again. DeLarose can be an effective 4th liner he definitively add some grit to his game lately

    Realistically I don't think we have any 60 point players. Optimistically I'd like to think we could have 4 or 5 60 point players.

    I'm sure hoping KK plays more games than that. What's your rationale? Injury? Poor play?

    He’ll lose a few weeks for WJC. He may also head straight back to Finland, but 20pts in 36 games is super imptressive so I’m curious to the reason also.

    I see many are penciling Drouin as our top point getter. Although his play has improved immensely I'm still a little worried about his production. He is still dipsy doodling himself into the corners without an escape plan. He does this on the PP way too much.

    I’m still gonna call it now... Tatar will lead the team in scoring.

    Drouin will have a better year, but he won’t be top-3 on the team.

    I’d be shocked if Weber has 20+ points in only ~50 games assuming he returns after Christmas. He hasn’t played a year, hasn’t had training camp. He’s capable though and a work horse, so it’s definitely possible, but I dunno.

    Unsure whether or not he stays the whole year. So I played it conservative in terms of games played. I'm not worried that he'll produce, though.

    Drouin has to show he can produce at 5v5. He's yet to produce more than 27 ES pts in one NHL season (as a reference, the old man offensive black-hole that is Plek had 24 ES points as a habs last year). He needs to hit those 35-40 ES pts range to get to 60, assuming he even hits 25 PP pts.

    He either plays 0-9 games or all of them. Anything else is a waste of a ELC year.

    Maybe 1 or 2 players with 50 points.

    Maybe 1 or 2 players with 40 points.

    And the rest of the scrubs in the 30 points range and less.

    Take away pacioretty, Replace Chucky with Domi by halfing Chucky's expected goal-scoring, expect Gallagher's 30 goals to be an outlier. Also if we take into account the amount of goals scored by a revolving group of Shaw, DLR, & whoever that goes in and out of the line, we probably add more 8-15 goals. So, we're closer to a 20-ish goals deficit from last year which is well within realistic expectations :D

    Pac scored 17. Tatar can do that
    Galchenyuk 19. Again Domi can cover.
    Our transition game feel much better.
    Lekhonen got his shot back.
    Mete is showing flash of Markov
    I believe we can aim at 220 goals
