If what you say is true the next player who goes to the CHL from college shouldn't score a lot more in a league in which scoring is similar. If what you say is true every player that went from D-1 to the CHL shouldn't score so much more in a league in which scoring is similar (GPG) to the one that they came from
Again, I would love for you to prove that that is true.
They score a LOT more because the competition is weaker, because they are much younger.
What you said would make since if there was a lot GPG (goals per game) in the CHL but there isn't.
Yours would make sense, but your assuming they score more because the competition is weaker, and your assuming the competition is weaker because they're younger. Totally different games, and CHL is way more similar to pro hockey
I named 4. There are a few more. All 4 of those players didn't just increase scoring but increased it by a lot. Skinner's got nothing to do with it, neither does Crosby, Fact is any time a player goes from D-! to major jr, they have a much easier time scoring because the competition is so much weaker because they are younger.
I will remind you about this the next time a player goes to the CHL from the NCAA and I guarantee you and will bet you anything that his production per game will increase by at least 50%.
You will probably have forgotten by then, I won't
Again scoring more has nothing to do with how good the hockey is.
I wrote, very clearly, that last year NJD and LAK were 2 of the best defensive teams. Whcih is what helped them win the SC. You said they were not. Now I have pointed it out and proven my point, and you ask if I am following?????
How have you proven they were the 2 best defensive clubs? The only thing you've done is mention OUR defense and Howard.
St. Louis was the best defensive club. #1 in fewest goals against and #1 in fewest shots allowed.
Besides Doughty, Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk are more valuable than anyone in LA's or NJD's defense core
Blues are one of the better teams this year and I could easily see them in the finals. They physically dominated us which I think validates the Tootoo signing. At this point though I wish Holland had chased Prust instead of Sammy.
Still just one game though, not losing my head just yet
