And here we are. A mere 48 hours before training camp starts. A cool breeze in the air. Leaves falling. Time to make asses of ourselves once more. Seriously - check these predictions from last year:

 

Quote

Kaapo Kakko, Selke Finalist - LindG1000

 

And he got exactly zero votes. 

 

Quote

Filip Chytil leads the NHL in face-off win percentage. - @Gravesy

 

Finished at 43.4%, good for....333rd. 

 

Quote

Nils Lundkvist is at least a Calder nominee - @BlairBettsBlocksEverything

 

And he got no votes.

 

 

Quote

Kreider scores less than 40 points - AND 20 goals from Rooney @Drew a Penalty 

 

Kreider finished with 52 GOALS, let alone points (77). Rooney finished with 6 goals. 

 

 

Quote

Trouba is a healthy scratch numerous times. @TwoMinutesForNothing

 

Trouba played 81 of 82 games. He sat the second-to-last game of the season for rest. 

 

 

Quote

Jack Eichel will be traded to the Rangers by Christmas. @RichieNextel305

 

Nope. Vegas ruined that dream, like so many others.

 

Holy fucking shit, we are BAD AT THIS. Yet we keep doing this to ourselves. There's a lesson in here somewhere. Anyway....

 

Rules: You get to make EXACTLY ONE prediction about the 2022-23 New York Rangers. It must be less than obvious. Most off-the-wall truth at the end of the season wins nothing rep. I am asking for incredible foresight here, so get your divining hats on (or drink yourself silly).

 

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

I’ve been waiting for this, so here’s mine:

 

At some point before the trade deadline, whenever that date is, the New York Rangers will acquire Patrick Kane from the Chicago Blackhawks.

This isn't ballsy!

Some of you guys need to learn what ballsy is.

 

Shesterkin records a shorthanded GWG 

 

Again, I'm going to remind you that this has literally never happened in the history of the NHL. There is a goalie with a SHG (Hextall, playoffs), but it was not the GWG.

 

Also, if the Kane prediction was the "Vichy France Politician" of ballsy, this is the "Genghis Khan" of predictions

There’s ballsy and then there’s “pie in the sky”.
 

Not ballsy - Shesterkin gets 35 wins

——
Ballsy - Shesterkin breaks single season sv% record
——

Big Foot Exists - BSBH as a whole goes the full season without shitting on Chytil in a post

——

Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams - You and Pete won’t get into a tiff all year

 

Your prediction is past ballsy and in the Big Foot Exists level, but short of Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams. Not “impossible”, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
