[QUOTE]In Response to Re: B's players pts distributed this season : As i remmber horton played last season so what changed on the first line??? He got injured but he played more than half the season. What changed interms of forwards that will make a difference?

yup. Horton played the first half of the season...you may remember, if you were watching, the bruins were pretty much head and shoulders above every other team in the NHL at that point, didn't they have a 14 game win streak?
So let me get this straight, Pittsburgh is much improved because Crosby is coming back. The same Crosby that was on Pittsburgh when they lost in 6 to the very average Flyers. However, Horton is coming back to the bruins, who struggled without him, but with him in the lineup looked like the best team in the NHL, got worse? interesting, I am looking forward to hearing you explain your reasoning, it should be insightful.
On to Hamilton - are you of the opinion that point production is all that matters when evaluating D-men? It seems that way, you keep on bringing up 25 points and a +13 like it means Corvo was good. Corvo, in a word, was horrendous. He earned the name "uh oh corvo." He played on a really superior team, which is why his plus minus was decent, but he was the worst d man thats been with the bruins for a while. Hamilton could easily, and i mean very easily have a better year than Corvo did without showing up on the scoresheet once. Having said that, I ABSOLUTELY think he can get 25 points. Have you heard anything about this guy? 72 points in 50 games in the OHL is unreal for a d man.
the following is a list of the top defensemen scorers in the NHL this season that played in major junior, and their point total in their last year:
Brian Campbell - last year in OHL: 14-39-53 in 66 games.
Dustin Byfuglien - not sure but i believe he was a forward in junior - 22-36-58 in 66 games.
Pietrangelo - OHL - 8-21-29 in 36 games
Weber - WHL - 12-29-41 in 55 games.
i could go on and on, but the point is, Hamilton's numbers (and we know you love numbers) are off the charts and he's also pushing 6'6"
