With the 2017-18 NHL season officially launched on Wednesday night and the Hurricanes scheduled to start the season in just two days, this week is heavy on predictions for the upcoming season.

The Monday Coffee Shop polls and discussion had reader predictions at the team level.

Today’s Coffee Shop polls and discussion feature polls and discussion on individual player predictions for the 2017-18 season.

First, we will do a final stop on the captain situation. As many know, the team is scheduled to announce its captains at a press conference at 12pm on Thursday. The Coffee Shop had polls on the subject of the captaincy on July 10 and then revisited the situation on September 5 right after Bill Peters said that the team would name a captain before the start of the 2017-18 season.
