Thought we could have a little fun before the puck drop tomorrow night. Projections for the forum this year. Feel free to add since I know I left out some of the routine guys/ and the odd girl on here. Cheers everyone!
NAS- Can the wily vet put up another standout season? Hits hard and usually takes on all comers. But, let’s be honest folks, he’s not getting any younger. If camp is any indicator it will be a down year for this soon to be over-the-hill gamble. Supposed leader in the locker room but has a hard time following his 100 post rule. Will be interesting as well if he continues to turn into what he hates most as he grows older (skating clown). He is a true curmudgeon.
Red- This Power Forward is stuck between a rock and a Stanley Cup champion. Will she continue to cheer for the Bruins even though her team is back in the Peg? Will be interesting to see how she gets along with the rest of the board. How long before she abandons the duck boat for the sinking ship?
Shuperman- The true skating clown of the Boston Globe forum. Will fight all comers, only if they accept to it. If they don’t he will respectively back down and await another opportunity. Gives you good minutes and you don’t feel bad playing him. Good veteran presence.
Dez- This poster isn’t known to back down from a fight. Somewhat insightful, somewhat loony, but always producing. Solid.
Kelv- Dump him. Another year older/wiser and still dreams about bedding Carey Price.
Callod- The necessary pest. Produces while ticking off everyone around him. Teammates stand him only because they wear the same colors. Everyone else hates him. Will fight all comers. Steady point producer. Keep him until his act runs stale. Plus, he was rookie of the year last year so that's something.
Stanley- What can be written of this space cadet? Well, after 1290371123 attempts he finally got a prediction right so you have to ride the hot hand. Predicts a dynasty so why not keep him. Stan is also a great guy in the locker room.
Nite- Pick him up. Beats out Kelv this year. Wittier, brasher, and doesn’t look for friends. He is a banger.
