1. Tomas Hertl will score 35 goals if he stays healthy
Last season, Hertl scored 15 goals in only 37 games. If he would have played 80 games he would have scored around 32 goals if he kept that pace up. Assuming he can improve on that mark from last year, it is a very reasonable prediction, right?
Well, before his injury in early December, the -foot-, 210 pound center was one of the hottest players in the league. I am 95% sure, he would not have kept up this pace for the rest of the season. That’s what makes this a bold prediction.
