Who will boom and who will bust next season?

Posted by Richard Pollock in Columns,Puck Prospectus Column on July 29, 2009 — No Comments

As part of my responsibilities at Puck Prospectus, I wrote five mini-pieces for ESPN.com discussing which players are expected to trend upwards and which players are expected to trend downwards next season.  The projections are based on a new Puck Prospectus stat called VUKOTA (similar to PECOTA for baseball).

I was responsible for the Southeast Division; here are the five pieces (Note: ESPN Insider is required to read these stories):

Florida Panthers

Atlanta Thrashers

Washington Capitals

Tampa Bay Lightning

Carolina Hurricanes
