#2610032 Ovechkin Top 5 Goal Scorer all time?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Yesterday, 11:22 AM

I've been thinking about this too, was listening to MvsW the other week and they said Ovi was 9th in scoring since 1992 (NHL debut in 2005), fair to say he doesn't reach Gretzky but he might reach Bossy and Hull. Even if he doesn't, in an era where scoring is down, goalie pads are bigger etc he will surely go down as one of the greatest scorers the game has ever seen.

 

He also lost a season and a half to lockouts. 

 

Where he ends up scoring wise depends on if the trend of allowing interference continues of if the league heads back to where it was after the lockout.   He's certainly one of the greatest goal scorers the game has ever seen though.

Is there an application I can fill out for the vacant GM position in Toronto? Afraid I may be overqualified though.

#2569596 Nabokov traded back to San Jose

Posted by F.Michael on 10 February 2015 - 10:36 AM



Future considerations is usually dependent on something happening beyond the deal. A player can't be given up for nothing so I would imagine the deal is something like if Nabakov signs a new deal then San Jose would need to give something. He's retiring so I would imagine there's nothing going to be exchanged. An example of this would be when we got Draper for $1

#2553232 The Last Gladiators

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 02 December 2014 - 12:23 PM

I've watched this film on Netflix a few times now. The more I see stories like this the more I struggle with the role of the enforcer/fighter in the game.

 

Agreed.  

 

I grew up watching hockey in the 80s, loved guys like Probert and Kocur but now as an adult hockey fan and knowing what it does to these guys I have a harder time enjoying it as part of the game. 

 

Especially because the more you learn about them you realize what great guys most of them were.  Blue collar guys doing what they had to in order to stay on the roster. Saying "they knew what they were getting in to" doesn't really explain it away for me anymore. 

 

As for the documentary, I thought it was a decent one, though completely misnamed.  It really is a movie about Nilan.
