This isn't your typical fantasy hockey projections story. Predicting Alex Ovechkin to score 30 goals this year isn't anything special, simply because it's obviously going to happen. That's a safe and uninteresting prediction. This is a story full of strange and fairly outrageous predictions.
Some of these predictions are based on statistics or changes of scenery or different line combinations, but most of them are based purely on instinct or a hunch. You may think some of them are extreme and unrealistic, but that's the point. Odds are only a handful of these will come true (maybe none of them), but nevertheless, these are things that could happen this season.
