Leafs Season 17/18 Predictions
« on: October 04, 2017, 02:31:57 PM »
Before the first game tonight I thought it would be fun if each of us posted a few predictions for the Leafs this season.

1. Andersen wins 40 or more games.
2. Matthews scores 50 goals.
3. Morgan Rielly smashes his single-season points record and puts up at least 45.
4. The Leafs earn 100 points or more

Nylander and Matthews finish with over 80 points each.
Upon the wicked He will rain Jerseys; blue and white and burning waffles will be the portion of their cup.

The injury bug bites and sophomore slumps slump, with an across the board 5% reduction in all major stats, leaving us just missing the playoffs.

Then, with those hard lessons learned, we take the Cup in 2019.

I love Gardiner but I can't see #4  I mean no first place votes from anyone if that's what you mean.

Some downers:
-Zaitsev doesn't crack 30 points
-Brown doesn't crack 12 goals
-The Leafs finish the season with a back-up not named McBackup or Sparks
-Carrick is traded or falls out of the top-6 on a permanent basis at some point

Positive notes:
-Andersen surpasses Raycroft/Belfour's single season wins record (37)
-Marleau has a rough start but comes alive in the second half of the season and still scores 20 goals
-Gardiner asserts himself as the teams number one defenceman
-No sophomore slumps for the big-3, all of them surpass last seasons point totals
