Good blog. I'm very suprised though that Derian Hatcher did not crack the lineup in scoring here! LOL.

Bouwmeester will have 50 points no question (barring injury)

i do not think any defender will have over 70 points. Kaberle and McCabe will both be in the top 5 ( barring injury) Gonchar will not be in the top 5. Neither will Vishnovsky or boyle. Top ten will be as follows. Scott Niedermayer 69Thomas Kaberle 67Nicklas Lidstrom 66Chris Pronger 65Bryan McCabe 65Sheldon Souray 62Segei Zubov 60Sergei Gonchar 55Dan Boyle 52Dion Phaneuf 52

I think Timonen will be in this list. He'll continue his role he had as a Predator with the Flyers and will produce a lot, especially on the powerplay.

Nice list. Looks like you are expecting a rise in scroing from the backline overall.

I don't think Lidsstrom is going to get outpointed by Gonchar. other than that, good list.

alas! no devils D-men, no surprise there

I wouldnt be surprised to see Weber higher up. That kid is amazing and he will be taking a higher role with timonen gone.

Lidstrom is awesome, Top 5 to ever player the game as a defenseman. He can completely dominate a game. It is insane to see Detroit dominate (the regular season at least) year in year out.
