In Topic: General discussion for tonight's games

Yesterday, 11:29 AM

Buffalo, the team, scored 11 goals in 10 games so far this season.  Pittsburgh scored 7 goals in the second half of it's game last night.

Agreed, if he never went to KHL, he would most certainly already be the 2nd highest point getter all-time.  He's currently 89 points behind Howe and 126 points behind Messier.  He scored 67 points last year, so if he comes back again next year I'd say he's has a decent shot at catching Howe, but it would be tough to catch Messier.  Statistically, if he puts up the same numbers this year and next year as he did last year, he'll catch him, I just think the likelihood of that happening is low.


Just thought I'd bring it up as I saw a comment somewhere today about Jagr not "hanging on" but actually still being a very effective player.  I probably realized, but didn't think about it much that he was very close to the top of all-time point getters.  I'm not a fan of his at all (not that I have any great dislike for him).

Two line pass?  That's a phrase I haven't heard in years.

I heard a bit of Bob McCowan's show last night and tuned in right in the middle of him talking about the Wings being for sale.  He was basically saying that he stands by what he said.  It doesn't mean there will be a sale, just means that it is out there as a possibility.  I see it as a trade rumour type deal.  There are talks all the time about potential trades involving certain players....most of those talks do not result in an actual trade, but that doesn't mean there were no talks happening.


Anyway, Bob suggested that the story he reported was based on information from 2 independent (and very reliable) sources.  He also suggested that he heard from a 3rd since he broke that story.  So everyone can deny it all they want (he made specific reference to Holland). 


My take....Bob doesn't make stuff up, he's one of the most connected and respected guys in the business.  I've listened to him quite a bit and there are often times when he talks about hearing things, but doesn't mention them on air because they are just rumours.  For him to put something out there, there's has to be more to it and more substantial sources claiming it.  We're not talking about some dumbass reporter out there trying to make a name for himself.


That said...like most other things, I think there is truth behind this, but I don't think it will come to fruition.
