Hey guys.. let’s predict how many goals each player on the senators will score this year and how many goals the Senators will score as a team this year. Then we can compare as the year goes on. Could make for an interesting thread. Obviously roster isn’t set yet so these would be early predictions but we can update our posts as we go before the first game of the season! Will also use this thread to track goals during the season so we can easily reference. I’ll start: Will update before first game of season to reflect the actual line up... when we can see better who will be playing and on what lines. Tkachuk - 25 White - 20 Duclair - 25 Pageau - 12 Artem Anisimov - 15 Batherson - 15 Ennis - 20 Tierney - 15 Boedker - 8 Logan Brown - ??? Brown - 15 Ryan - 20 Balcers - 1 Veronneau - 15 Forwards: 197 Chabot - 20 Zaitsev - 8 Hainsey - 5 Demelo - 3 Boro - 1 Jaros - 3 Wolanin - 11 Brannstrom - 2 Defense: 53 Total Goals Scored: 259 Total Goals Allowed: 260 Goal Differential: -1 (was at -10 before smith trade) Standings: Fight for WC spot **Note on Goal Differential: in order to hit those numbers our goalies must post a 0.910 save percentage and the team must not allow more then 35 shots per game on average. =258 goals against** If you tweak the goalies save percentage to 0.92 (highly unlikely) and keep the shots at 35 shots against per game. The sens will allow 230 goals and would almost certainly make the playoffs. At a save percentage of 0.915 with 35 shots against per game the sens would allow 243 goals and have a shot at a positive goal differential. Now we know there are going to be major growing pains and we will get blown out several times throughout the season. So I would say Sens are one of those odd teams where goal differential wouldn’t be the best metric on whether they make the playoffs or not. I could see them making a run at a WC spot with a -10 goal differential. Hence my prediction for standings.
