    Kel - All those are pretty reasonable and many of them may actually happen. The Price offer sheet is the long shot here. I say not happening.

    Red Wings sign Suter.
    NHL reaches agreement without too much drama.
    NHL makes rule adjustment regarding goalie gear and/or something to combat collapse.
    Tampa Bay makes a significant trade.
    Nash is traded... and it's a bad trade for both sides.
    Canadiens hire a french coach.
    Marleau is traded.
    Stasny is traded (for Marleau?).
    Bruins trade Thomas and get a big wing.
    Something completely unexpected.

    1,2.3, 6. and 9 are a given.  (4) Price is now a legend in Montreal, he needs a team though, Semin is there kinda player, hehe.  He is a great fighter... hehe. (5) Luongo will get traded, nice market for goalies.  (7) Parise will sign but not with the Devils or the Bs.... Rangers maybe.  (8) Edmonton does not need another young forward, think defense ->>> Suter will be traded and signed, lots of teams waiting... Detriot fans are wishful thinkers for Suter.  Add Washington to Tampa and Toronto as must trade teams.  Buffalo and Ottawa will make more moves as well.  

    Oshie in a Bs uniform would be better than Parise cap wise.  Bs will pick up an aging defenseman, Mark Streit?

    I should probably do something about getting fired for passing out on my typewriter. Poor taste will never be corrected it's inbred no cure.

    Re: 10 NHL Summer Predictions,,

    1. Bruins win Stanley Cups in odds years of the 2010's (5 in total).
    2. Tyler Seguin wins Art Ross Trophy in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018.
    3. Doug Hamilton makes the squad in 2012 because of cap friendly salary and PC decides it is better he apprentices in the NHL rather than go back to junior and not correct bad habits.
    4. Doug Hamilton leads defensemen in scoring in 2014.
    5. Stanley Cup winning goal in 2015 will be scored by Jared Knight, assisted by Seguin and Hamilton. Cup winning goal in 2013 is still fuzzy at this moment, but I see Nathan Horton in the picture.
    6. The New York Shotblockers miss the playoffs in 2013 thanks to shotblocking injuries to six players throughout the year.
    7. Thomas and Rask notch 15 shutouts in 2012-13.
    8. Bruins will have 8 20-goal scores next season.
    9. Leafs miss playoffs for an eighth straight year.
    10. LA will make the 2013 final and suffer a King-sized sweep to the Bruins, giving up 20 goals and scoring only 4. (7-1, 3-2, 6-1, 4-0).

    that's because of what they're named after. They're not named after the plant, they're named after the Maple Leaf Regiment. Since the source of the name is a proper noun, Maple Leafs is actually the grammatically correct plural. Smythe got it right.
