Philadelphia Flyers: Predicting the Stats for Their Top 10 Players in 2013

The Philadelphia Flyers, along with the rest of the teams in the NHL, are preparing for the start of the 2012-13 NHL season after the lockout ended this past weekend. 

Stats are tough to predict this year because of the unique situation of an extremely short preseason and shortened regular season as well. Players may simply get hot quickly and end up being near the top of the league because the season wasn't long enough for them to cool back down.

At the same time, it may take longer for others to get going, and they won't have the luxury of the second half of a season to really hit their stride and start producing.

It may also benefit older players, who won't be as worn down as they would be at the end of an 82-game season. At the same time, one injury could effectively throw things off completely for a player who misses just a few weeks while recovering.

So as volatile and difficult as it may be, I'm going to take a stab at predicting the stats for the top players on the Flyers for this lockout-shortened season. 

In order to come up with this list, I simply chose the players who had the ten highest point totals for the Flyers last season. (Jaromir Jagr and Matt Carle were replaced with Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn.)
