Cold_Smoke Posted April 1, 2015 Share Posted April 1, 2015 Hello gents. I'm a long time reader of these forms and I decided to now join the discussion's. While in the bathroom on the throne (your welcome) I re-discovered a collection of 2014-2015 poolers guides I had collected at the beginning of the year. I joined a keeper league with a salary cap and just collected all the information I could. On the internet these days you can find information on any player , with predictions and stats. But each magazine offers a unique view and tidbits that you don't find on the internet (easily). That's why they sell these things. It's interesting to look back and see how our players are matching up to the expectations. Here's some of their bold predictions. THE NEW FACES Radim Vrbata - Over the last three seasons, Vrbata has recorded 141 points (67-74) in 191 games, despite playing for the offensively challenged Coyotes. And He was never able to play on a line which had top-notch centre like Henrik Sedin. Vrbata, who was signed to a two-year contract, could displace Burrows as the right winger alongside the twins. Possibly the teams top goal scorer ? Prediction : 27 G , 27 A - 54 POINTS Current : 31 G, 29 A - 60 POINTS (In 74 GP) Nick Bonino - With Ryan Kesler gone, Bonino should step up into the canucks second center spot. A 50 point season is within his grasp. He had 49 points (22-27) in 77 games with the ducks. Prediction : 20 G , 27 A - 47 POINTS Current : 15 G , 22 A - 37 POINTS (In 70 GP) Ryan Miller - He may not be the goaltender he used to be, but miller should get more than 60 starts with his new team. Prediction : 60 GP , 31 WIN , 4 SO'S Current : 44 GP, 28 WIN , 15 L , 6 SO'S That's all I got for now. Feel free to post any interesting predictions you have found by different "experts" to today's stats. They vary greatly from magazine to magazine, blogger to blogger ( I admit I read hockey buzz - Van's blog all the time). Most have low expectations of the canuck's. Fine by me. We are the underdogs of 2014-2015. GO NUCKS , Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
