    Gretzky only topped 150 points in a season once after his 28 yr old season. Ditto for Mario Lemieux (injuries didn't help) Sakic had one of his six 100 point seasons after 28 (his second best year ove more »

  • Forum Post: Gagne?

    Posted 08/28/2014 01:17:40 EDT

    nite, no, it's got nothing to do with the Bruins grasping at straws.  I mean, sure, if Gagne plays really well in camp and pre-season, maybe they do think about signing him and moving Kelly to RW or s more »

    I think, steve, to stick with your illustrative example, there's still a context piece people would need to understand to really make sense of what they're seeing.  The Bruins went 0 fer the Habs from more »

    Just spitballing the revenues here, but if you're drawing 7000 a night each season with an average ticket price of $17 (just because someone here picked it - I haven't looked it up), you're pulling in more »

    If we're doing the NCAA/CHL comparison, you have to take into account that the CHL doesn't keep these kids from making money off of playing hockey.  The future pros (i.e. the ones who, in a market bas more »

    I think, steve, NAS is trying to find the poison pill examples in lieu of writing an essay, and I'd connect that to the suggestion asmaha makes about coaches gameplanning around the data from advanced more »

    Two things that the advanced stats acolytes will never get past, though: 1) the most commonly cited "advanced stat" was invented by a goalie for goalies; 2) "Corsi for is a proxy for...".  As soon as more »

    More and more, I find Emelin's a bit of a defining case for me. Here's a guy who lays the body regularly.  13th in the league for D in hits.  Sometimes, he goes for the "big hit".  Now, let's be clear more »

    Okay, now let the freak flags fly.  Wild speculation, but two things you genuinely think could happen this season - so, unlike NAS's thread, where we were talking about things you felt, based on reaso more »

    I think you missed the point of the fable.  See the fox says he doesn't want the grapes and so he ridicules them for being too sour, but clearly he did want the grapes, but didn't get them.  Because B more »

    I got nuthin'.  I could come up with some wishful thinking stuff, sort of like nite's: Jordan Knight will make his NHL debut and look like a viable prospect. Matt Fraser will gel with Carl Soderberg a more »

    FA invitees is the norm; having only two defensemen in the system get invited?  I don't think that's the norm, is it? Maybe what I should have said is that it's discouraging that the Bruins only had s more »

    Bruins prospect analysis.  Interesting that they put Pasterneck at 5th.   Also interesting that Camara comes in 10th, Ferlin 9th.  Donato, Griffith, Cunningha more »

    Goalie trade returns are all over the place.  LA basically got a high second and a high third for Bernier...and turned Frattin into Gaborik, but you can't count on that kind of flow through every day! more »
