#1987050 WC in Pitt. pretty much a done deal for 2011

Posted by toby91_ca on 19 May 2010 - 07:54 AM

This love fest with these two players and teams is getting really old.

I can understand the issue most people have with the constant promotion of Crosby and Ovechkin, but I think people need to step back and appreciate just how good these players are.

As of right now (I know numbers could decline, but both are still years away from their primes):

Career points per game leaders in NHL history:

Gretzky - 1.921
Lemieux - 1.883
Bossy - 1.497
Orr - 1.393
Crosby - 1.364
Ovechkin - 1.336
Dionne - 1.314

Pretty impressive group to be included within. Again, over the long haul, their stats may begin to lag, but it is also important to point out that all the others on this list played in a much higher scorer era than today's NHL. While they have tried to increase scoring, scoring is still low and goalies are lightyears ahead of where they used to be.

People need to understand that these players are special and if the NHL doesn't market them as such, they are missing out. To NHL fans of other teams, it gets annoying, but I do think these guys draw in new fans.


#1982215 Wings' first draft pick - 22nd overall

Posted by Guest on 09 May 2010 - 04:03 PM

What are they gonna do with the dilemma called Jakub Kindl? a 15th overall with maximum years in the AHL and still is a liability and a turnover machine... what a fail pick :thumbdown:

#1985017 Youngest Staal traded to Carolina

Posted by Carman on 14 May 2010 - 10:31 AM

Going to be interesting to see if Carolina tries to get Jordan and Marc.

A collection of Staal's would be interesting.

How would Jordan's and Jared's name be on the back of the jersey? Jo. Staal and Ja. Staal haha?

Thanks for a good season.

I'm right now trying to puzzle out how to accept a series loss that was so greatly brought on by officiating.

We've been old and on the way down for 10 years. Eventually someone is going to be right.

I prefer the other song by this band from the San Jose area - "Lights"

Go Sharks!


I prefer "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'" and "Separate Ways."

Now all you Wings fans DO realize that Journey is a Bay Area band, right? Might be bad mojo to call on them for your aid tonight. And I know that Jonathan Cain is a pretty big Sharks fan, too....

Given the circumstances that the Wings are from Detroit, shouldn't you guys be playing something from Eminem or Kid Rock? Or Madonna?

If your choices were Eminem, Kid Rock, or Madonna, wouldn't you play anything else? Thought so.
