Predictions 2013. Around the league

Nazem Kadri from SBNation database of pictures

  1. Nazem Kadri will score at a higher points per game than Brayden Schenn.
  2. Bobrovski will be within 0.005 of Bryzgalov in save percentage.
  3. Daniel Alfredsson will not crack 55 points.
  4. The Flyers will have less points than they did last year.
  5. Marc Andre Fleury will have a lower than the median save percentage for a starter (as defined by goalies who play more than 30 GP).
  6. Varlamov will be top 15 in save percentage.
  7. Cole will play less games than Connolly.
  8. Ovechkin will crack 100 points again and win the Hart.
  9. Iginla will not crack 35 goals nor 75 points.
  10. Tampa Bay will pick up 2 players making 3 million+ during the season.
 Lets see how I did:

  1. NK= 0.33 vs BS = 0.33... They Tied.  Wrong
  2. Bryz=0.909, Bob=0.899... Wrong (though Bryz did worse than everyone predicted)
  3. Alfredsson= 59 points... Wrong
  4. 2010/2011= 106 pts vs 2011/2012= 103 pts.  Right
  5. Median save percentage for goalie with >30 GP = 0.915, Fleury's = 0.913. Right
  6. (Same list as last) Varlamov was 26th... Wrong
  7. Connolly= 70 GP vs Cole = 82 GP... Wrong
  8. Ovechkin=65 points... Wrong
  9. Iginla= 32 goals and 67 points... Right
  10. This one simply didn't happen.... Wrong
3/10.... Terrible.

Read on to see if I can do any better this year....

  1. Eberle will not be top 10 scoring, but he will be top 30 (ie 11-30th)
  2. Ovechkin will outscore both Sedins
  3. Vokoun will be within 0.003 of Fleury in save percentage
  4. Nash will score less goals and/or points than Kessel (at least 1 of the two)
  5. Edmonton will not break the top 10 in the West
  6. Calgary will be the worst Canadian team by points
  7. Duchenne will outscore Landeskog (by points)
  8. John Tavares will outscore Seguin in points and goals
  9. One of Toronto's goalies will have a better save percentage than Pavelec
  10. Smith will not be top 12 in save percentage for goalies playing greater to or equal 25 GP
