The Bold Predictions Thread

Post em here.

I’ll start off with:

The Leafs win two rounds.

- Leafs make finals, but lose there
- Matthews scores 70
- Nick Robertson: Breakout Year. Scores 30
- Lilly disappoints for most of the year (that hernia surgery scares the shit out of me)
- Thick Willy throws a big boy hit at some point this season
- Murray is top 5 in league SV% before getting hurt and missing a few months

I kinda think Muzzin will run into injury issues again, concerned about those concussions.

Feel free to make a legit predictions thread or just throw your non bold ones in here too and specify.

I also kinda think NYI will be total trash this year.
 

Preston

AKA: Preston Fauci. Prestauci.
Alex Kerfoot will be extended

Muzzin-Brodie, when healthy, becomes one of the leagues best shutdown pairs

Murray gives them .910, Samsonov sucks balls

Out of all the Leafs youth/bubble guys only Robertson will impress. And maybe DOUGLAS makes a splash #TeamMeanGoat

Leafs win the division and win a round
 

Habsy

Yes, I'm kidding people.
If the bold predictions is extended to all teams then the Habs will be better than expected and screw up a shot at Bedard.

-Murray ends up being okay, but Samsonov takes over the net from him before the quarter season mark.
-Matty hits 60 again, but 70 is too optimistic.
-Muzz ends up being an injured pylon for much of the year and misses the playoffs.
-Sandin and Lilly both become mainstays with lots of minutes, so that doesn't matter much other than being a wasted asset and cap albatross.
-Robertson finds a home beside Tavares and scores 20+.
-Dubie adds a big name at the deadline to play with Matty and Marner, bumping Bunting down to the third line.
-Leafs win cup.

Leafs win the Atlantic with 116 points. No one notices due to talk of Bunting being UFA.
Marner leads the Leafs in scoring with 113 points.
Matthews has injuries and fails to hit 50 goals.
Engvall hits 20 goals
Nylander hits 90 points
Tavares has 82 points
Bunting regresses, but still hits 51 points.
Leafs win the cup over Calgary.
Leafs add Patrick Kane at the deadline. Don't ask me how.
Samsonov starts more games and is starter for game 1 of playoffs.

Non Leaf Predictions:
Eliass Pettersen hits 106 points.
John Tortorella is fired in year 1 in Philly.
Florida regresses bad and only qualifies for a WC.
Lou is fired in Long Island.
Flyers finish 32nd overall, but Arizona finally wins the lottery.
Vegas again misses the playoffs. Jack Eichel jumps out of window on Bellagios' 34th floor
It is New Jersey that gets the WC and has the biggest improvement, not Ottawa.
Caps miss the playoffs.
Mcdavid again wins Art Ross/Hart.

Leafs have an excellent regular season, get home ice for the first round, and for the most part dominate the first 6 games but find themselves tied 3-3 after some really bad luck with a couple of untimely goals and penalties.

Then lose Game 7 by a 1-0 score despite outshooting the other team 60-12.
