Simple, who do you guys think will have a breakout season and why?

For me, I think Booth will have a huge year and get close to his 30-goal potential again. Last season was limited by injuries and despite being shuffled around the lineup, he was on pace for 20+ goals so if he gets a full season with Kesler (after he comes back) and Higgins I'll expect him to break through. He's still young and a very explosive player.

If Raymond stays, I see him to blow people's expectations out of the water. Say what you want, he is still young and still has potential that can break out any year now. It happens all over the league and could happen to Raymond too - we've seen him at his best and he's scary good (first 6 games coming back from injury he was the best Canuck hands-down). Especially with a proper off-season to bulk up and train this time, he could really shock people on our 3rd or 2nd line with 25ish goals.

If Kassian gets a full-time spot on this roster he too could break out with a 20 goal season of his own. He's got high potential which is just waiting to break out, and even if he starts off on our 3rd or 4th line I can see him move up during the season due to injuries, especially with the twins.

Hansen will probably keep improving as he has all his career and hit the 20 goal plateau (very likely), and I expect Edler to continue to get better and make it to the 50 point mark next season too as he too has shown no signs of slowing down yet.

As for defence, Gragnani has potential to break-out if he gets full-time duties (unlikely), Tanev might start picking up offence if he works on his shot in the offseason but I believe if MG doesn't find a top-4 defenceman, Ballard will really step up his game. He's finally getting the opportunity now and he played well down the stretch last season.

The biggest breakout though I believe will be Dale Weise (surprise). This guy has shown me glimpses of a great powerforward, he has a nice shot and very underated skill. Most importantly he's still very young and if he gets a full time 4th line spot he will score 10 goals or more.

Of course not all of these players can break out and there's a lot of conditions, so Hansen and Edler improvements are almost guarantees but the rest depend on a few things to happen, primarily ice time.


is there anyone that you DONT think will have a breakout year?

It's good to see positive threads. I hope you are proved correct in all your thoughts/wishes.

I would love to see Jordan Schroeder and Alex Freisen get a chance on our 3rd line in pre season. I have a feeling they might be a surprise package.

If we don't get the big 1st line winger then I think Booth could really blossom with the Sedins.

I think a line of Raymond, Higgins and Burrows would light us up.

Volpatti could have a breakout if he starts to realise that time is slipping away for him and if he doesn't try to broaden his ambition when he is on the ice then he will not have a place at the club. I think he can but does he?

I see Booth getting around 50-60 points, and Raymond rebounding with around 40.

Schneider and Hansen will have breakout years and I can see malhotra bouncing back to his best.
