Back in preseason we provided hockey fans with 30 outrageous fantasy predictions -- one for each team. Most of those predictions were based on instinct or a hunch, but regardless, they were things we thought could happen this season. And because they were such extreme predictions, we were obviously off on a few of them.
Is Zach Parise going to become the first 50-goal scorer in Devils history and rank as the top overall fantasy player this season? Definitely not. But it wasn't our fault he got hurt. Who knows, if he stayed healthy he could have eventually found his game and injected life into the Devils, or maybe not. But you could say we were off on that forecast. Jason Spezza is not going to record 100 points, especially now that he's injured, but even before that, he was obviously not reaching that hefty expectation -- that'll be the last time we believe in Spezza's talent. There were other missed predictions as well, but we won't recap all of them.
