In Topic: Larkin for ...

Today, 12:02 AM

I want Larkin to be better offensively than Toews.
But i don't expect it, if he becomes a 60-70pt selke caliber defensive forward I'll be ecstatic.
But I want him to be a 90-110 pt selke caliber center.

That would make me happy.

Yes already on pace for 61 points in his rookie year. So its possible. I see him topping out around 80-90 though

In Topic: If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

I know.
I'm probably a genioos.

And there it is. Why would he want to inflate your ego anymore? It's already bigger than your parking spot

In Topic: The Rise and Fall of Drew Miller

You can't have a full team of scoring wingers.  You need cheap 4th line guys who don't score goals, but prevent the others team from scoring them.  Maybe Miller is part of the reason of D has good stats.
BTW, Bill, Darren Helm only has 2 points, he makes more than Miller and will probably get a contract north of $4M next summer... For my money, I re-sign Miller for $2M for the same production and scoring ability before I give Helm anywhere NEAR $3M, let alone $4M...
Why don't we have a thread called the rise and fall of Helm....or Franzen...or Cleary...or whomever is not doing quite as good as he did the years prior.  Miller is fine here, he may or may not get re-signed because of roster space, but I, for one, think he'd be a good 4th liner for someone for at least 2 more years.  If we have to room, I hope its us.

Umm... We've had many of those threads for Cleary and franzen...

Youre on. I will make u a deal. I will send you my Yzerman white (used to be home) for the Smith stadium if it happens.

That's a dumb wager. I'll take it.

There are 3 lies. Lies, damn lies, and stats. Even fancy stats don't tell the whole story.

As far as Jurco goes, I remember Blashill says nh Jurco needs to skate harder, not be able to skate harder. That implies an unwillingness to put forth necessary effort.

Not necessarily. If your boss said you needed to work harder, does that automatically mean you're unwilling to work harder? No it just means he expects more out of you, now you have to show him what you can do. He's just lighting a fire. Most players when in a slump or something like that will openly admit they need to work harder, it's not some public shaming.
