Leafs Projections

Photobucket
Now that I'm back from my summer vacation in beautiful Florida, it's time to gear up for the start of the NHL season with only a month left to go. There's a positive vibe around the city and Leaf fans seem to be pretty excited. For the first time in years the team as an identity and a direction. Fans around the city are debating the expectations for this team; some expect the playoffs and some expect the Bruins to have another lottery pick. Team projections have been beaten to death already, but the team is made up of players, so I'm going to do my best to give some projections for the main individual players on the Leafs. I'm going to leave goaltenders Giguere and Gustavsson out because neither has solidified themselves as the number one goaltender and so projections at this point would be pointless until the situation is a little more clear. With that said, let's get started.
