It's easy to get caught up in awards when writing a prediction piece with a little more than half an NHL season to play. Picking Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid as the Art Ross Trophy winner, Carey Price or Devan Dubnyk as the Vezina winner or someone like Sergei Bobrovsky or Nick Foligno as the ultimate hoister of the Hart Trophy might make a decent read, but we're going for a little more bold than that. 

As the calendar turns to 2017, we're examining some big storylines that could play out in the coming months, both on and off the ice. Big names could get traded, big decisions—like participation in the 2018 Winter Olympics—loom and more than a few firings could take place (we're looking at you, Colorado Avalanche and New York Islanders).
