Blogger's Breakouts

I was asked recently to contribute on behalf of the Jackets the two players who I believe will have breakout seasons next year.

My picks as well as others from the central division can be found here.

Fire away - who do you think will have a breakout season next year?

Good write-up, I couldn't agree more... those two Jackets should become NHL veterans next year.

That was a good link, as it yielded a couple of good blog lead for other teams.

The single most interesting thing I read on that page was the Steve Sullivan fact... that is a good story!

That really was an interesting fact about Sullivan. Crazy how negotiations work sometimes.

Russell was also right there in the mix for me but just couldn't pass on Brass or Jake.

I'd predict Brass to have a HUGE year, like 25-50-75 ish. And what about Filatov?

LTL said...

I think Filatov will "breakout" not this year but next.

This year I predict a similar season to what Voracek had last year but with more goals than assists. I'm thinkin 21g, 15a for 36p.

Good point on Voracek. He's got to put more goals on the board. Russell too. I think anything less than 8-10 goals for him will be a disappointing season, even if he is on the 3rd pairing.
