    Collapse?

    Kinda dumb piece. It's like documenting the collapse of your washing machine. So great at first, but WHAT!!!!....after 20 years it breaks????! Preposterous!!! Moving on.

    ECF- CAR vs. BOS

    I absolutely hate Boston and I am pulling for Carolina to win, but I wouldn't hate a San Jose vs Boston finals. It would be a cool story-line with Thornton trying to win a cup against the team that traded him away. If Boston ended up winning though, it would just suck.

    Collapse?

    I don't know if I'd use the word collapse. I mean, 20 years at the top is pretty strong. I'm more inclined to use the word drop right now. If we stay in the dumper for 10 years, then we can use collapse.

    2019 Draft

    Wouldn’t years played and years played in specific levels/league be more determinate of development than age? Further, is draft class not based the the former? I haven’t seen any other analysis that favors the age metric until later in player’s careers when years in the league are too unevenly spread across players.

    2019 Draft

    That's a terrible example because I doubt you'd ever see a 20 year player being drafted at 6th overall. If a player is 20 years old and hasn't been drafted yet....more often than not, they don't get drafted at all and may make their way to the NHL as a free agent (rare)......but if they do get drafted, not sure how they would all of a sudden be drafted so high. You absolutely have to base comparisons on draft year. It's very difficult to compare a player born at the beginning of the year to one born at the end of that same year. In that case you have almost a full year difference anyway, but it gets more challenging when you get towards the middle....in pure age...may not be a big difference, but hockey experience gets impacted by cut-offs. Take the biggest comparison players of the last 15 years....Crosby vs. Ovechkin. Everyone sees these guys as the same age, coming into the NHL at the same time. But Ovechkin is almost a full 2 years older. He was only drafted 1 year earlier though because of where their birth dates fell. If Ovechkin had of been playing in North America, even though he's almost a full 2 years older than Crosby, he really would have only had 1 additional year of major junior experience due to the cut-off.

    Collapse?

    I would call it a decline. It was inevitable. No dynasty lasts forever. I dont get why this team, going thru the same cycle as everyone else, is fodder for the masses.

    They see us rollin’ - they hatin’ I will enjoy the vast numbers of seething fans the moment we are back to contention. It will be sooner than they think.

    2019 Draft

    Same. I, like many, would absolutely love to land Byram, but I really don't think he's available at 6. Someone will want a dman before that. This draft, more so than any others I've paid attention to, has me uncertain of who I'd want. Turcotte, Zegras, Caufield, Podkolzin, not to mention I'm open to the idea that Cozens will be better than I think. So hard to choose. Part of me really thinks Zegras is going to be the surprise catch, like Pettersson was.

    Byram could absolutely fall to us at 6. I'm not saying it's something we should count on, but I do feel like the Byram HYPE! is getting a wee bit excessive on the interwebz. Been meaning to do a mock draft. I'll try to do it tomorrow.

    WCF: San Jose Sharks vs. St Louis Blues

    I was there in person for game 7, never in my life had I felt so deflated as a sports fan. Having all the annoying penguins fans in my section certainly didn’t help either. Before those 2 finals Pittsburgh was actually my second fav team, I liked them since the early 90’s as that first cup win was the first season I really followed hockey. Hate them now.

    Find our "safe space"? And hide from the realities of life? Or we could make incredibly wordy signs and march around the national mall.

    I mean Larkin already had a full NHL season, 23 goals, and 45 points at 19. The 6th overall from his draft class had 55 GP at 19. The 6th overall from the 2015 draft class had 70 GP at 19. The 6th overall from the 2016 draft class had 70 GP at 19. Hell, even Rasmussen had 62 GP at 19. Zadina has 9, and was a middle 6 winger in the AHL
