The Hockey News has released their annual hockey pool guide and I always find their predictions interested (even if they are seldom accurate).

Henrik - 85 points

Daniel - 82 points

Burrows - 58 points

Kesler - 51 points

Edler - 48 points

Booth - 42 points

Bieksa - 37 points

Higgins - 37 points

Garrison - 36 points

Hansen - 34 points

Raymond - 30 points

Hamhuis - 29 points

Kassian - 25 points

Malhotra- 22 points

Lapierre - 20 points

Ballard - 20 points

Tanev 13 points

Schneider - 38 wins, 2.15 GAA, .929 SP, 7 SO

Luongo -33 wins, 2.55 GAA, .920 SP, 4 SO (assuming he's traded at some point)

Your thoughts?

Can't trade Luongo if you get 71 wins out of keeping both!

EDIT: Damnit, beat me to it :(

Higgins, Booth, Raymond and Hansen will score more than that for sure. I think they overrated Garrison, I'm really only hoping for about 25 points as long as he plays solid defence.

Each goalie is capable of 30+ wins. I know it most likely won't happen, but I say we keep them for at least one more season and trade guys like Raymond and Malhotra (maybe Ballard too) to free up cap space. Here is what I predict stats wise

Daniel: 82 games, 39 goals, 60 assists, 99 points

Henrik: 82 games, 20 goals, 75 assists, 95 points

Burrows: 82 games, 32 goals, 33 assists, 65 points

Booth: 80 games, 26 goals, 26 assists, 52 points

Kesler: 56 games, 19 goals, 17 assists, 36 points

Kassian: 82 games, 15 goals, 25 assists, 40 points (if Zack gets top 6 minutes)

Higgins: 76 games, 16 goals, 14 assists, 30 points

Malhotra: 41 games, 10 goals, 11 assists, 21 points

Schroeder: 41 games, 11 goals, 15 assists, 26 points

Hansen: 75 games, 15 goals, 15 assists, 30 points

Volpatti: 30 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, 3 points

Lapierre: 82 games, 7 goals, 8 assists, 15 points

Weise: 25 games, 5 goals, 3 assists, 8 points

Hamhuis: 82 games, 6 goals, 31 assists, 37 points

Bieksa: 79 games, 7 goals, 27 assists, 34 points

Edler: 77 games, 13 goals, 37 assists, 50 points

Garrison: 82 games, 12 goals, 25 assists, 37 points

Ballard: 59 games, 4 goals, 16 assists, 20 points

Tanev: 82 games, 2 goals, 20 assists, 22 points

Schneider: 54 games, 2.11 GAA, .931 SV%

Did you guys not read the OP? He clearly states "assuming Luongo gets traded"--meaning he'd be the starter on some other team and get 30+ wins. It obviously wasn't meant that the Canucks would get 70+ wins.

Anyway, I'm really hoping the Sedins can top 100pts again so I'm not a huge fan of these predictions. And man, do they ever have Schneider owning stats-wise. I really hope he can put up those numbers! B)

Just to get a rough reference frame... Canucks players had 667 points last year.. 642 from the top 20 point scorers.

The Penguins led the league with 722 points from their top 20.

We had 681 points from our top 20 2 years ago.

Anyone who predicts more then 680 points in the 20 scorers they list is very, very optimistic. Anyone who predicts over 700 needs to take off their blue and green glasses. Anyone who predicts more then 720... Just keep it to yourself.

Mr. Mullet, you are predicting that we have a better offensive season then two years ago when we led the league... You are predicting that we will have 720 points coming from our top 19 (the 20th scorer on top teams seems to get 5-6 points) and that our top 20 will outscore last year's penguins...

I don't think that that is realistic. Shave off maybe 60-80 points and you might get closer to reality.

THN predicts 669 points from our top 17 which works out to maybe 688 points for the top 20 (last year our 18-20 players produced 19 points and the year before that it was 17 points).

THN is a bit too optimistic, but only slightly outrageously so.

I ususally post a huge points projections thread at the start of every year, and I will wait until early september (when hopefully Doan and MG will have made their moves) to make my own prognostications.

Just try to keep your numbers in check by adding up the point totals in your predictions.

Why would he predict how many wins Lu would get if he's on a different team? Especially if that team is unknown.

Top 9 fws for next year.

Sedins- 81 pts each

Doan- 64 pts (12 pp goals all from henrik on cross crease one-timers... lets sign him to a 4yr-30mil if thats what it takes. Lets face it, we need to win in the next two-three years before the Oilers grow up. He's a priceless edition to our team. plz MG!)

Burrows- 59 pts

Booth- 45 pts

Higgins- 41pts

Arnott- 39 pts

Kesler- 35 pts

Kassian- 30pts

ALl I'm going to predict is that if the Sedins don't get injured they'll put up 90 points for sure. 87 minimum.
