Early August Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- The Forecaster has Auston Matthews going from 40 to 42 goals — I think more — and from 69 to 75 points. That 75 points would tie him with William Nylander for the Maple Leafs lead in scoring ... One surprise to me, the Forecaster has Connor McDavid going from 100 points to 97 — I’m thinking 110 is more likely. But the magazine loves Leon Draisaitl in Edmonton and has him going from 77 points to 91 ... The scoring champ prediction is not Sidney Crosby or McDavid, the likely choices. It has Evgeni Malkin winning the Art Ross.

- Peter Karmanos is asking for $500 million US for the Carolina Hurricanes, who have trouble selling tickets. Good luck to him. Bill Foley paid $500 million for the Vegas franchise and many wondered why the price was so high.

a few more hockey notes, remember it is early August...
