Just thought I would do some examining of what I think players should do points wise this season. I’d list minimum, maximum, and most likely for each player that has a no question starting spot imo for an 82gm season. No +/- because that’s a bit more complicated to guess. Here you go:
Bailey-Still very young and showed that he had good potential last year:
Mini-35pts/15goals Likely-40-45pts/20goals Max-55pts/25 goals
My guess: 48pts/22goals season
Comeau-Showed great potential at the end of last year:
Mini-38pts/17goals Likely-45pts/20goals Max-55pts/25goals
Hunter-Injuries on and off and inconsistentcy:
Mini-35pts/16goals Likely-40pts/18goals Max-52pts/25goals
Konopka-Enforcer 4th liner:
Mini-5pts/Xgoals Likely-8-10pts/Xgoals Max-20pts/xgoals
My guess:10pts/xgoals while doing his job
Moulson-1 season wonder so far that needs to prove himself:
Mini-20goals/35-40pts Likely-25goals/45pts Max-35goals/60pts
Nielsen-Career year last year and is showing his potential:
Mini-35pts/12goals Likely-40pts/15goals Max-50pts/20goals
Okposo-high potential but overworked and has missed some chances:
Mini-50pts/20goals Likely-57pts/23goals Max-70pts/32goals
Schremp-showed a big upside last year, starting with JB + KO can help him a lot:
Mini-40pts/10goals Likely-45pts/12goals Max-60pts/20goals
Tavares-Mr.Franchise showed a ton of upside while struggling last year:
Mini-60pts/25goals Likely-65pts/30goals Max-75pts/38goals
Possibly(if given 82gms):
Pareantu: if given the time/job:
3rd line minutes: Mini-25pts/10goals Likely-30pts/12goals Max-38pts/15goals
4th line minutes: Mini-15pts/5goals Likely-18pts/8goals Max-22pts/10goals
Matt Martin/Joensuu-Wild Cards and unknown minutes so I’m not guessing.
Nino-If given the 3rd-2nd line minutes out of camp and the job:
My guess: 25-32pts/10-15goals
Eaton-Top 4 defensive/shutdown man and is reliable in the role:
My guess:10-20pts, 15pts most likely
Hillen-Top 4 potential, offensive defenseman and plays close to it:
My guess: 20-30pts, low-mid 20’s pt wise most likely
MacDonald-Top 4 shutdown potential and will play like it:
My guess:12-25pts, ~15pts most likely
Martinek-Old top 4 shutdown d-man that probably want make half a season but plays smart and well:
My guess(if healthy):10-20pts, most likely 15pts
Streit-Top 2 d-men, solid 2-way, great offensive capabilities and he keeps on rolling in his role:
My guess: 50-65pts, mid 50’s most likely
Wisniewski-Wild card with top 2 potential and a ton of upside, I say he plays like a 2/3 d-man and puts up great offensive numbers:
My guess: 25-45pts, most likely 35pts~ but I wouldn’t be surprised if he got 40+
Jurcina-If given the starting job over one of the above d-men, unknown full potential:
My guess: 5-20pts, most likely ~12pts. But if he works with the system and plays with passion, he has the tools to be a 20pt d-man and the size to be a solid shutdown d-man. He needs more passion and better decision making though.
Rollie-plays well with a better d ahead of him, similar to last year:
Projected: .910 save percentage and wins a decent amount of more games then he loses.
Lawson-Solid backup that should be ok in the nhl, imo he is better then people project him as being. Should be a good backup and is very smart with great positioning.
Projected: .90X save percentage and should be around .500 in the win/loss column.
DP-Not even going there
Team goes say: 39-33-10 88pts and either barely makes the playoffs or barely misses the playoffs. 8th-10th spot projection.
What are your thoughts on the individual player’s projected stats for this year and what they will do this year?
