Provost Posted May 29, 2015 Share Posted May 29, 2015 I make one of these threads every offseason and then every season and folks put down what they think will happen... then at the end of the season (or training camp in this case) we get to see who had the right crystal ball. EDIT: DON'T POST A COMMENT DISAGREEING WITH SOMEONE'S PREDICTIONS UNLESS YOU HAVE THE COJONES TO POST YOUR OWN FIRST. YOU COME ACROSS AS A WEENIE WHO CAN'T COME UP WITH ORIGINAL THOUGHT. My predictions: Forwards: - Both Higgins and Hansen will be moved out. In return, we will end up some some picks plus at least one extra "almost" ready minor league defenceman who can be used for injury call-ups during the year. - Neither Matthias or Richardson will be re-signed - Kassian will stay - Not a lot of other moves as we have enough young guys to compete for the open spots left - Virtanen is on the opening day roster probably because of an injury to a veteran, but he goes down before 9 games. Defence - I am picking Hamhuis to be the one moved out of our corps. He can garner a decent return, plus is probably more likely to waive his NTC than Bieksa. Hamhuis knows a lot of other players from his Team Canada time and could probably easily be persuaded to join them in another organization, especially one that is a contender. - If Bieksa does waive, it is to Toronto who after moving out a lot of pieces would use him as a veteran to usher their youngsters along - We will sign or trade for another top 4 D as a replacement. - We sign McQuaid from Boston if we have managed to trade away at least two of our D before July 1st Goal - Lack is the one that moves. I am guessing they try to move Miller, but aren't successful as there aren't as many suitors at that cap hit. SJ is where Miller goes if he does end up being the one moved out. Draft - We move up in the 1st round, but only by a few spots and end up picking between 15-20. - We have at least 2 more picks in the first three rounds (probably both in the 2nd round due to the moves listed above.
