5) Jack Campbell Will Set Franchise Record For Wins
If goaltender Jack Campbell can get back to his early season form, he could set a new franchise record for wins in a season. The current record is 37 wins and is shared by Ed Belfour and Andrew Raycroft.
Campbell currently has 23 wins, so he will need 15 more wins to break the record. With just 31 games left, it will not be an easy task.
If he plays well enough and the team keeps him in, he will have a good shot. The Toronto Maple Leafs will need to play Campbell in 23-25 games to have a real chance.
While it is true that Campbell has struggled since December, I think he’ll right the ship and get back to form. Campbell was the NHL’s best goalie for the calendar year of 2021, and while goalies tend to be the most inconsistent NHL performers, I think he’s shown more than enough in his time in Toronto to get the benefit of the doubt.
As much as I would love to see all five of these predictions come true, I will settle for 3/5 of them. Predictions are always a fun thing to do. Some come true, and others are too unrealistic to come true. Either way, I hope you enjoyed my predictions.
