    I'm going to say around high 30's in points. Offensively I'm not that worried about him. I just don't know how he's going to do being that #1 guy defensively. I wish we would've signed Hannan. He would've been perfect with Smith or Kindl. I'm still really hoping we trade for Jaybo. I'd rather not start the year with Smith, Ericsson, and Kindl all on the team.
    You need centerman that can play two ways and if they donít play two ways in the end, you canít win, because the guy you are counting on canít get himself on the right side of the puck enough. So sure he can score, he can score but his team loses every night, I didnít know that was the objective. I thought winning was the objective. So if you centers canít play down the middle, and canít play without the puck, you have no chance.

    I've lowballed the other predictions so I'll go 45 points as my guess.

    Given the fact that he is going to be a starter I see his numbers up a bit as compared to the last couple. I'll say 45 points or so.

    I agree with you guys. I'm thinking 41-50, and I too will go right in the middle with 45. He's going to have so much pressure on him this season. He'll need to continue and develop his overall game. Big season for Kronny. All-Star, wearing the "A", and being the #1 defenseman on the Red Wings for the first time in at least 15 seasons.

    Yep im the guy who put 30-40. Doesnt mean he wont be a good #1, I just dont see him putting up more then high 30's. I think he will be a little shell shocked at first and afraid to pinch, lay those big hits or step into the slot for a shot. He is going to be afraid to make a mistake.

    35. I'm guessing he'll be with white, so someone's gotta stay back and actually play defense though.

    38 points. He already plays significant minutes and plays on the power play, so I don't see where a large jump in numbers would be warranted, plus not having Stuart as his partner, I would think he is going to have concentrate more on the defensive aspects of his game.

    I like how four people said a number between 31-40 in their posts but 31-40 only got two votes lol. When is the next one going up?

    I was planning on putting it up now, but I can't seem to C&P anything.
