S53 WFT #1 - Bold Predictions
#1
(This post was last modified: 03-27-2020, 12:11 AM by hotdog.)

This PT is for SHL players and send-downs only; it is not for SMJHL rookies.

A fan favorite around these parts, it's time for the PT Team's BOLD predictions. I've consulted with members of the PT family and some unassociated pals to put together this list of spicy takes for you to grapple with.

These predictions are BOLD... which means they're most likely wrong. Your task is to pick one of these that you think is EXTRA wrong and school us on why in 25+ words.

BUT If you see somebody making a claim you disagree with, you can be our white knight and step in to defend the honor of the PT team - reply to someone's post (with 25+ words) and explain why ACTUALLY,,,,,,, the original bold prediction is right.

Luke - Edmonton will miss the playoffs

bbjygm - Hamilton will do well and everybody will be very calm and cool about it when they do

Y-man - New England will still miss the playoffs

Katth - Toronto will not finish last in the league

Fordyford - Hamilton will finish dead last in the league

Luke - Toronto will win fewer than 7 games

Donini - Winnipeg will make the playoffs

JayWhy - The Buffalo Stampede will finish just outside the playoffs, at 5th place in the East

hotdog - Aleister Cain will finally take home an award (it's not bold because he's got a ton of TPE but it is bold cuz we all know he stink)

Puolivalmiste - TEX goalie White Goodman will be Rookie of the Year

JayWhy - The Chicago Syndicate are going to be top 3 in the league in both goals for and goals against

Mike Izzy - In their 19th seasons, one of either Robert Phelps or Mike Izzy will win one of the awards for the S53 season.


All members who meet the criteria (min. 25 words, on topic) will receive 1 capped TPE for the S53 cap. 8-10 users will be selected as Participation+ members for going above and beyond in this task; those users will be awarded an additional 1 uncapped TPE.

Any posts with malicious intent will not be graded.
Deadline: Sunday, March 29th at 11:59 PM ET

FOR - we all know Hamilton's going to do well. That's already a given. With a strong roster and a good goalie, not to mention a team of strong test simmers, there's a very low chance that they won't do well. And I expect the rest of the league, being the calm and collected people we all are, will applaud them on their efforts and strong roster building.

On JayWhy's, I'm going to disagree on the grounds that this isn't even a bold prediction. I'm assuming that he meant CHI will have the top 3 (highest) GF and (highest) GA. We've all been watching the pre-season sims and CHI dropped 8-7 and 10-8 games every other day. It's really not bold to say this run & gun style will result in that outcome, if anything it's the expected outcome.

Katth - Toronto will not finish last in the league

I legit don't think this will happen. Toronto is incredibly bad at everything, including losing and tanking. Tampa Bay and Minnesota are both also down there, and Minnesota is alone. Toronto and Tampa might trade wins off each other and either one of them could be at the bottom of the table, but Minnesota is alone in the west and teams are gonna feast on them.

Disagree, unless we make an award for having a GAA above 4 because I bet that's what he'll finish the season with. Cain is a trash goalie who should've build changed to skater with the switch over

Luke - Edmonton will miss the playoffs

Edmonton has consistently made the playoffs in the SHL and with their young core players beginning to hit their prime, they will look to rise to the occasion and continue the playoff tradition in the city of Edmonton.

Thank you @caltroit_red_flames for this player signature!

Fordyford - Hamilton will finish dead last in the league


Agreed. Simon is still pissed off that we switched Sims and he has secretly been plotting against Hamilton in order to ruin their games in FHM, just like they opened everyones eyes and ruined him.

Luke - Toronto will win fewer than 7 games

No Toronto slander shall be tolerated. I know Toronto has been the butt end of many jokes but c‘mon fewer than 7 games......... they just traded for ELITE 3C First-Name Last-Name who will lead the league in absolutely nothing. But I promise you we will win more than 7... even the casino is giving us +\- of 10.5.

Luke - Edmonton will miss the playoffs
Donini - Winnipeg will make the playoffs


FOR: For one to come true, the other will come true also. So how does this come to pass? WPG will surprise when Big Dick Nick "The Goat" Brain has a surprising MVP season and Goku "Connor McDavid" Muerto wins the scoring race. And EDM loses their entire team to coronavirus and has to replace the whole squad with IFAs.

Luke - Edmonton will miss the playoffs

As much as I hate to say it, I have to disagree with this one. I can't stand Edmonton for the most part (Battle of Alberta and all that) but I bet on them in the casino. And that is the only reason I give a hoot.

I think this one is plausible, Cain finally gets a chance to prove hes the de facto most talented goalie in the entire league. One issue is that the Specters have had a perpetually mediocre to decent blueline however and that might lead to Cain having to face too many shots to maintain a decent GAA, even if the team wins.

Yes, Hamilton will do well. That is for sure. After all they did 2 million test sims as they promised to do to make sure to found the most efficient build to use with the entire team. The league will however not be calm and cool about this. Reports go that there are currently investigations to see if we can switch to Eastside Hockey Manager for Season 55.

I don't think New England will miss the playoffs this year. There's other teams that suck more and in the few test sims I've done they have always made the playoffs.

I don't think that Edmonton will miss the play-offs. Even I'm in other team, I think Edmonton can play good and reach big results this season. Because it's FHM time fellas. Good luck them, by the way.
