Predictions and "Grade-ictions" Series

Kimmo Timonen
2009/2010 Regular season stats: 6G 33A -2
2010 Playoff stats: 1G 10A +6
Grade: B+

Timonen was, as he has been throughout his entire career as a Flyer, a very reliable and versatile defenseman. He was a main contributor along Chris Pronger on both the power play and penalty kill this past season and would more often than not have to bail out his defensive partner, Braydon Coburn, during even strength play. And the fact that he was paired with Coburn was a big reason his plus/minus went from +19 in 08/09 to -2 in 09/10. Timonen also had a stellar postseason in 2010 and even though he turned 35 in March, he proved that he is the least of the Flyers worries this coming season.

2010/2011 Predictions: 8G 32A +7
