I feel like with Adam Pelech, Scott Mayfield, and Noah Dobson I was on the right track. Nick Leddy and Ryan Pulock I was way off with. For Leddy, I was not expecting the offensive resurgence that we saw from him.
As for Pulock, the assist total was a fine guess, I just wasn’t anticipating the cold streak shooting. This year looks like such an outlier for him, I’m not going to worry about that going forward.

I don’t care that my numbers were off, how about hitting the starting split perfectly! I’m going to hang my hat on that one. Both goalies overachieved my expectations, and I’m sorry for doubting Mitch Korn, even though my predictions would still be considered good seasons from a starting goalie.
