GWG :thumbup:

Because he finally drove the net to shoot, and Hudler drew off three defenders and hit him with a perfect pass.

He's one of the guys I'm looking to really step it up with Z out for God knows how long. He better bring it.

It's the playoffs, he always brings it and steps up his game, do your research.

He is a different player in the playoffs. He steps it up a few notches, he's looked very good in all 3 games and was outstanding last night with so many strong shifts plus the GWG.

Through four games:

NHL ranks:

Points: 3rd

+\-: 2nd

Team ranks:

Points: 2nd

SOG: 3rd

+\-: 2nd

This is why he makes 3mil. Not for his average regular season statistics, but because he is one of the handful of players who actually plays better in the playoffs.

Not that I'm knocking Fil's numbers because he's been stellar compared to practically everyone else in the playoffs, but your numbers are off.

NHL ranks:

Points: 6th

+\-: 4th

Team ranks:

Points: 2nd

SOG: 3rd

+\-: 4th

Depends on how you interpret stats. If someone has 6 points and a dozen have 5 and player X has 4, I consider that player X is third in points while the people with 5 are tied for second. To each their own.

Filppula is a beastttt. Well worth the money.

Flip's got a big task this series. Scoring will be a bonus, to me he has to shut down their key guys, as noted above.

You would be wrong. I'll show you an example:

Schembechler 10 points

Carr 9 points

Harbaugh 8 points

Hoke 7 points

Rodriguez 6 points

Now, in this situation it's clear where everyone goes. But what if a scoring change happens and one of Lloyd Carr's goals is given to Brady Hoke.

Schembechler 10 points

Carr 8 points

Harbaugh 8 points

Hoke 8 points

Rodriguez 6 points

The order is the same, right? But now we have a three-way tie in second place. Does Rodriguez suddenly move up from 5th to 3rd? Of course not.

Why?

There are four people ahead of him, that makes him fifth. It's really easy. Really.

They'd be tied for 2nd but that doesn't make the fifth ranked guy move into 3rd.

Flip has been rock solid. This will be an ever bigger test for him... but for as much as people complain that he doesn't live up to his potential in the regular season, he always finds another gear in the playoffs.

Go get em Flip!!!!

The first tiebreaker is goals scored. This has determined the NHL's scoring leader three times.

The second tiebreaker is games played. If two players have the same number of goals and assists, the one with fewer games is ranked higher.

The third tiebreaker is who scored a goal first in the season.

He needs to be ready to center the second line that will have to shutdown Clowe/ Rat-face Couture/ and Heatley.
