In Topic: Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Wow, thanks for asking.

I'm doing great. I can still hold my kids, play with them in the pool, and zipline with them at Whistler.

My parents and my brothers family joined us for a week in San Diego, then all flew to our home in Washington. We just took them to Whistler where we all, including my 75 yr old mumsy, did the longest tallest zip line in North America . (The kids did the bobsled run too, along with my wife)
 

 

That's good to hear.  As for that zip line, I wouldn't do that for all the tea in China!

Zetterberg is on Wings FB page doing it, and nominating....Kimi Raikkonen.  Are they friends off ice?


In Topic: Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Euro_Twins....if you are purely looking at stats, I don't think Datsyuk has a chance at the Hall at all at this point.  804 points in 824 is good enough?  Don't think so.  Lindros has 865 points in 760 games and has a Hart and Pearson...he's not in.

 

My personal starting discussion point used to be 1,000 points AND over 1 ppg.  Anything less than that would be very difficult, but there would be exceptions (e.g. several high end trophies)

 

GMR has nailed it.  If that is your criteria, then only a handful of players drafted during the Bettman era will make the HOF.  One only has to look at the list of total NHL points, I think Thornton is the highest ranked Bettman era player and he was something like 37th last time I checked.  The list is dominated by guys drafted in the 70s and 80s.  Under your criteria, all the accumulators who played in the 80s will get in ahead of the superstars of the 21st century, which is just wrong. 

 

Plus Pav's points can't be looked at in isolation, the guy won 3 consecutive Selke's whilst averaging 92 points and winning a cup.  He's a top-10 all time defensive forward.  Throw in his jaw dropping playstyle and he is just a unique player.

Can I have Fedorov with Datsyuk's attitude and work ethic?

 

We saw flashes of it (like those four 20+ point playoffs) but never consistently enough.

 

Both HOFers.  Better player?  I flip-flop between the two,

This is such a surreal position to be in. Thanks PlayMaker and everyone.
