1st section is player season performance predictions. You have 3 categories: great season (exceeds expectations or showed great progress), average season (did not show any major improvements, but also did not disappoint), bad season (did not meet expectations or just had a bad season). Place 3 players in EACH of the three categories and give a small explanation for why they are there. *please try and put players who will have a significant role on the team. to keep things interesting!*. Do not put more than 3 players in the categories, even though there could be many more that have great or bad seasons. Just choose 3.

My predictions:
Great Season
Cole Caufield - Hits at least 60 points with 35+ goals
Sean Monahan - Rejuvenates his career on a bad Montreal team putting up around 50 points (assuming he does indeed miss some time due to injury)
Evgeni Dadonov - 40 points at the deadline, becomes a fan favorite, (sort of like what happened to Kovalchuk) and gets traded for at least a 2nd rd pick and a prospect

Average Season
Brendan Gallagher - Like you said, an improvement of last year but that isn't saying much. He gets around 15 goals and 20 assists
Kirby Dach - Not a breakout year but also not a bad year. He puts up around 35 points and is projected to be a good middle 6 center
Josh Anderson - Scores 20 something goals... just an average season

Bad season
Jonathan Drouin - Has a very promising start to the season and gets hurt... and doesn't come back
David Savard - Plays as he did during the first half of last season...
Juraj Slafkovsky - Starts the year on the team and is very underwhelming, gets sent back to Europe after nine games and everyone overreacts and starts labeling him a bust. (Hopefully this doesn't happen)

2nd section is team performance predictions. Only 1 category: Standings placement (within division, conference, and NHL)

My predictions:
Standings placement
7th in Atlantic - 14th in Eastern Conference - 26th in League

3rd section is the trade + pending UFA predictions. To make it interesting, you can trade ONLY 3 players (pending UFA or not), and you HAVE to extend 2 of MTLs pending UFAs. Predict who's being traded, and for what return, and predict the contract extension of both UFA players.

My predictions:
Evgeni Dadonov has a great year and is retained and dealt at the deadline for a pretty good return - MIN, WSH, NYR
Jonathan Drouin is traded for close to nothing as he's been on the IR for damn near the whole season. Similar to the Riley Nash trade to Toronto in 2021 - LAK, COL, ANA

Unless Jake Allen and Sean Monahan have good years and are willing to resign then I wouldn't have a problem with it. Realistically, the only UFA I see getting an extension is Alex Belzile.
