Fuck! No one made this thread and we have two days until the season!

Let's get going people!


Rules: You get to make EXACTLY ONE prediction about the 2014-2015 New York Rangers. It must be less than obvious (a prediction like Henrik Lundqvist will win 10 games is pretty obvious).

Most off the wall truth at the end of the season wins a prize nothing. Yes - I am asking for incredible foresight here.

Oh - and no repeat predictions. If someone beats you to the punch, so be it.

I'll start:
- Rick Nash scores 50+.

Nash with 42 goals, exactly.

If this comes true, I should be granted a lifetime non banning agreement

Ballsy prediction, eh? Derick Brassard, point-per-game player.

Nash finds chemistry with young guns Miller and Duclair and puts up a 40-40 season. Miller and Duclair each score 45 points as rookies.

Nash going 40-40? I think that's decently ballsy. Maybe Duclair and Miller's point totals are unnecessary.

It'd be ballsy if he didn't already have season like that. Maybe 100 points is ballsy...80...not ballsy.

I say, again, not ballsy.

That he signs a long term deal for $500K more than his 1 year deal and giving the exact date it happens? I think that's ballsy. More ballsy than this:



Krieder scores 30+ goals.


Kreider had a 21g over 82 game pace last year.

So you're saying it's not ballsy that a player increase his goal output 33% in one year?

Pshhh. That's not ballsy, it's obvious.

He hasn't come close to that since 2008-09, six years ago. And half seasons don't count.

I'll go with my usual: Lundqvist scores a goal!!

Because why?

RichieNextel305
10-07-2014, 06:33 PM
I personally expect Kreider to score 30 goals this year, so I wouldn't label it ballsy based off of my own projection for him. But, to each their own.

Pete
10-07-2014, 06:38 PM
I have him at 22-25. 30+ would be a monster year. I don't expect that leap at all, this year.

I think he's gonna take a giant leap. He had a bad camp last year, and started in Hartford if I recall. This year, after now his first real full season of hockey and now knowing the guys he is gonna be playing with, I just see him taking off. I expect big things from Kreider.

30 goals is a big number in the NHL and just a handful of players get there. To surpass it while increasing his pace by a third would be a monumental step. Hence the prediction being ballsy.

NYRangers92
10-07-2014, 10:16 PM
Before I make my prediction I want to know if its allowed in NHL rules. Can a junior player be returned after 9 games and then come back for playoffs once their junior season is finished?

If so, then my prediction is Duclair is sent down after 9 games then returns for playoffs and makes Kreider 11/12-like impact
If not substitute Duclair for Boo Nieves or Buchnevich (if possible)

Maybe he means he'll play in 25 games?

NYRangers723
10-08-2014, 08:31 AM
Krieder scores 30+ goals.

I think this could be a realistic predicition. Last year if he hadnt gotten gotten hurt he probably would have scored 20 goals at least. It seems like he has more knowledge of the game and how to use his assets. At worst he scores 25 but i do think if he plays a full season he can hit 30

Because there's no telling what would've happened the other 40 games. Want a better one? Nash becomes playmaker extraordinaire and posts 55 assists.
