  3. Sportsnet, here in Canada, is showing the 11-1 game at Montreal, when we scored 9 against Roy, which sent him to Colorado. Watching this game again, all these years later, Roy had no chance on almost all of those goals. The Russian 5 were all over the ice, there was really nothing he could do. I have nothing else to say other than that, ha! Man, the Russian 5 were good!

    Attacking you? LoL, you literally called me dumb in your previous post... Bullying you? LOL You've definitely voiced your opinion. You voice your opinion on Larkin and Zadina every time their names are mentioned. You voice your opinion on Larkin and Zadina, even when their names aren't mentioned... You definitely haven't supported your opinion with any real "facts". Unless of course you consider posting Yakupov's stats -> Yakupov = bust, therefore Zadina = bust, as facts... You are not "likely right". In fact, you are very unlikely to be right. Sure, there's an small chance Larkin's play up until now has been a complete fluke, and he *regresses* to an average 2C, but it's definitely not likely... Sure, there's an small chance Zadina breaks both arms and both legs, and never recovers, and goes back to Russia next season, but it's definitely not likely... I don't think you really are sick and tired of my s***. If you were, why do you continue to argue back and forth with me, but won't engage with anyone else that is challenging your dumb opinions? Call me a homer all you want. Doesn't bother me a bit. I'd prefer to be overly optimistic about the team I cheer for, rather than overly pessimistic about the team you supposedly cheer for...

    I realized I shouldnt have put Byfield in that group as his stats doesnt stand out in that way. But looking at both Rossi and Prefetti they have a huge number of assists this year. Numbers that in the last couple of years only have been matched by players like Morgan Frost and Jordan Kyrou in their draft+1 or +2 seasons. Rossi especially seems to benefit from his teammates also scoring big numbers too as the 67's had 4 players in the scoring top ten this season.

    Would please stop attacking me with every post... I'm not going to be bullied into agreeing with with you... I've voiced my opinion, I've made my case with facts... you don't like that I'm likely right and you're dream world is challenged... I get it... but I'm sick an tired of your s***. Notice how you incited this entire back and forth and the last one and the one before that, because you can't handle someone disagreeing with your lazy homer take.... again I get it.

    Worth thinking about, but I guess my first though after hearing that is that everyone's stats will be inflated. So if we're comparing them to past draft years/players of other leagues sure, but if we're just going to look at them relative to one another and assume the quality of the OHL isn't drastically different this year then It's not really a huge factor. Personally I'm not knowledgeable enough on the skill differences between the various leagues, outside of the typical narrative you hear about the QMJHL being a higher scoring league. That's why I find prospects like Stutzle so enticing, as I think there's no doubt a men's professional league contains stiffer competition.

    There is zero evidence that supports either of your dumbass claims that "Larkin is at best, a 2nd line center", or "Zadina is a bust". Zero. Larkin has performed as an average to below average top line center the past two seasons. He's still only 23 years old, and will most definitely improve in all areas of the game. He will be considered a legit 1C through his prime years. Zadina performed as a top six winger this past season, on a terrible team. He's still only 20 years old, and has played less than half an NHL season. He will also only get better, and be considered a legit top six (at worst) winger through his prime years. Of course there's no proof to back up a projection, but there is proof on how they have performed thus far. Look at basic stats, advanced stats, try watching a game, listen / read the opinions of NHL players, coaches, general managers, hockey analysts, etc. You (and a handful of idiots) are the only ones that don't see what the rest of us see. No matter how much you hope to be right on Larkin and Zadina failing to meet expectations, they won't...

    I didn't back out of the debate I definitively ended it with facts, not wistful unfounded optimism. You were/are wrong; I showed that empirically and you're to dumb or stubborn to acknowledge it... that's on you not me. You're lazy and you suck.

    Read somewhere that goaltending this year in the OHL has been abysmal. When asked about the goalie trademarket in juniors this year one scout said something like: "Can you even find two goalies in the OHL worth trading for?". Something to think about when it comes to Byfield, Rossi, Perfetti etc. Their numbers might be inflated. Sorry for not being able to provide source.

    2020 Draft Thread

    Thanks for the short analysis as I still have barely looked into Drysdale. When you mention Hughes and Makar my interest is piqued. Your last line is the way I think though, and if we don't get Laff I'd really like any one of those guys. Byfield obviously, Stutzle would be cool for the german factor and because I really like drafting guys who've already played in men's leagues. Rossi seems risky due to his skating/size, but he just seems so stinking talented and also appears to have some exceptional balance, which may make his size less of a factor.

    I bit the bullet and sifted through your nonsense, but see no actual analysis or what you're referring to outside of some stupid Staal/Bergeron comparison (shallow). I may have missed it or not looked back far enough, but I don't care that much to spend more time on it. Feel free to find it for me if you'd like. I'll say again, statistically he's a 1C, It's real easy to figure this part out, so easy I'm not going to do it for you since anyone with any basic reasoning skills can figure out how. He does this while being the sole threat his team has to offer, which if you don't think is a massive disadvantage, you're delusional (color me shocked).

    I won't search back thru hundreds of pages to find out where your analysis is coming from. I will link 2 pages that show that Larkin has been a 1C in scoring over the last 2 seasons. https://www.foxsports.com/nhl/stats?season=2019&category=SCORING&group=1&sort=3&time=0&pos=0&team=0&qual=1&sortOrder=0&page=1 It was a down year for Dylan this season, but he still finished 58th in scoring among forwards. Eliminate the wingers and Larkin finishes at 31st among centers. Out of 31 teams, that would make him the last 1C in, but still a 1C despite playing on the worst offensively and lowest scoring team. https://www.foxsports.com/nhl/stats?season=2018&category=SCORING&group=1&sort=3&time=0&pos=1&team=0&qual=1&sortOrder=0&page=1 This list puts him at 23rd among centers in scoring last season, making him comfortably a 1C.

    I agree with this. However, there will be no need to strip Larkin of the C. He will be a great captain. Seider will be a great alternate captain. Like you've been saying, the captain does not necessarily need to be your best player, but in this case, Larkin will be the 1C and Seider will be the 1D. The question is, who will be the other A? Who knows? Who cares? Maybe Bertuzzi. Maybe Mantha. Maybe upcoming draft pick... Hey everyone, I disagree with *almost * everything mackel has to say hockey related. Larkin is / will be a 1C Zadina is / will be a 1W (not a bust). Blashill is a good (not great) coach. LOL You backed out of that debate because you knew how dumb and wrong you were... Larkin tracks as a very good 2C, borderline 1C, right now. No way he improves beyond his 23 year old season though...

    I literally have nothing specific about him to point to. It's just one of those things where its what my gut is telling me. However, my gut can be wrong, so I won't stubbornly argue the point.

    Look in a mirror and say just that. FYI you don't have to constantly bring up the fact you disagree with me... I know you do and so does anyone who's been on LGW in the last 5 months... your not gonna change my mind. I did an analysis of every team in the league for KRSMITH on this very subject... it's in some old thread (feel free to track it down)... statistically Larkin slots as a 2C on more teams than he does as a 1C and on a number of teams he slots in as the 3C... but yes puddle, since I hold a view different than your own... gotcha

    2020 Draft Thread

    I'd been thinking all season long that Minny's gonna get one of the first three picks. Still think that. Just a gut feeling. Fair enough. Personally, I dunno what's not to like about him. He filled in for Byram at the WJC and performed admirably, becoming the youngest defenseman to represent Canada since Jay Bouwmeester. He has the elite skating and elite offensive instincts of guys like Hughes and Makar but he's also surprisingly good on the defensive side of the puck. Like Seider, he projects as a guy who eats minutes across all situations, a guy you can hard match against top talent. A guy you can really lean on. His bread and butter will likely be the power play, but I definitely don't see him as a one-dimensional power play specialist, if that's the concern. A top three of Drysdale, Seider, Hronek could be delicious. On the other hand, if we take Byfield/Stutzle/Rossi then we likely will have addressed our center depth problem, possibly for the next ten years.

    It pretty much is unless player X is traded. Stripping Larkin of the C down the road is worse than appointing Glendening for a few years IMHO.

    I didn't know Captain was a lifetime appointment. Captains get changed all the time. What is the harm in giving Larkin a chance to prove himself in the role he's been groomed for? Nope. C= Larkin A= Seider, Bertuzzi

    Maybe the league should gift the first overall to Minnesota. We wouldn't want them to riot or anything. Im less convinced about Drysdale than I was about Bowen or even Q. Hughes.

    2020 Draft Thread

    I'll be pretty surprised if Askarov goes in the top three. Less surprised if Drysdale does, as I think he looks like a future 1D. I'd be ok with Yzerman taking Drysdale or Rossi as high as 2nd overall, so I really mean it when I say we'd be getting a stud with all the makings of a cornerstone player at 4th overall.

    I'd give one to Ottawa just because I feel so bad for their fanbase for having to deal with that dumpster fire.

    Glendog for Captain

    I think you're probably right here. I won't mind it, and I think he'll probably make a good Captain. To CRL's point though I just hope he loses a bit of that petulant attitude, or at least makes it significantly less overt. He's only 23 though so I'm not worried about it. I mean, statistically it isn't ludicrous at all and supports me much more than you. But to call a 23 year old who nobody really touts that highly anyway overrated is just unreasonable in and of itself. Though you being unreasonable and having the argumentative depth of a puddle isn't really new at all, so carry on.
