Bold Predictions For 2018

12/28/2017 at 8:33am EST

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

Here are 10 bold predictions for the coming year:

Erik Karlsson will be traded

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk already believes he’s overspending on player salaries with a $68-million payroll. According to Kyle Turris, Melnyk did not wish to match the six-year, $36-million contract Ottawa’s former No. 1 centre signed with Nashville....

Ken Holland will part ways with the Detroit Red Wings

The NHL’s second-longest-tenured general manager won’t be sticking around for the Red Wings’ rebuild. Holland has yet to sign a contract extension, leading us to believe a shake-up would benefit both the executive and the club. We’re not predicting Holland will be fired. Rather, he’ll part amicably in the off-season and become a top candidate for another empty GM seat.
