Smyth will hit 30 goals again
Horcoff will achieve similar numbers
Schremp will not have more than a cup of coffee
Mikhnov will look lazy, but his name will be often read on the scoresheet.
Hemsky will not get the 100 points as some are optimistically predicting
Sykora will be a force on the PP and ES
Pouliot will turn out to be a disappointment.
Thoreson will follow that paths of Dominic Pittis, Brian Swanson, Jani Rita, amoung others.
The Oilers will split the season series against Calgary
The Canucks will miss out on the playoffs.
The Avalanche will remain competitive
The Wild will improve and contend for the final playoff spot.
The Oilers will be .500 at the end of October.
The World Curling Championships and Canadian Finals rodeo may cause some problems.
DET/NSH/CGY/SJ/ANA will be locks for the playoffs. The Oilers will have a chance to finish ahead of the latter 2 teams.
The Oilers will sell out all but 2 games
Likely a first or 2nd round exit in the playoffs. Don't worry, Calgary will choke in the first round.
The Oilers will provide Edmonton with another year of great entertainment - which is why we watch these games.

Letter in the Edmonton Sun yesterday
"WE WOULD like to publicly acknowledge an act of kindness by Ryan Smyth and his wife. Our eight-year-old grandson was at the Stollery Hospital visiting his very sick newborn sister. Kaleb was told that Ryan was visiting at the pediatric ICU and was asked if he would like to go see Ryan. After thinking a few seconds he replied that no, he wanted to stay and hold his sister. After about a half an hour Ryan and his wife came especially to see Kaleb. He stayed and talked with Kaleb, signed autographs and had pictures taken with Kaleb and Maya. Do you think Ryan has a new fan? You bet he does, and many more as well.Thank you Ryan, on behalf of the Strandberg and Moroz families. You made a little boy's day!
(A great story. Thanks!)
