5 player performance predictions:
Zucker had a great year this year he scored 21 goals in just 51 games and I think he easily could’ve been a 35+ goal scorer had he not gotten injured. My prediction is that he will be a 30+ goal scorer with 40+ points.
He had 48 points in 80 games as a second 2nd line center (14 goals, 34 assists) amd I think that’s good numbers for him. He is good offensively and defensively and a great leader for our young team. My prediction is that he will have a 50 point year and remain on the second line with Zucker and Niederreiter.
There is no doubt that he played amazing last year going 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA. Although he could be just another version of Kuemper, I predict that he will have around 45 wins, 2.30 GAA and a .920 S%
Suter is a way above average defenseman but not as talented as Keith or Doughty. He played well for a defenseman racking up 38 points in 77 games and being a +7. He will have solid offensive numbers and his +/- should go up this season while playing in front of G Devan Dubnyk.
Parise had 62 points (33G,29A) and was a +21 in 74 games. His performance should improve this year because C Mikael Granlund is getting better and Pominville is a consistent point production player. I predict that he has 30+ goals and 65+ points.
