    Looked into this earlier... if he plays every game in season will have 738gp to finish the season, and a similar adjusted PPG still most likely.

    I think of Giroux as more of a tabby Catman.

    That's settled, but now I can't decide which DC hero Provorov is...

    Cyborg or Superman? Both are too perfect

    Ghost is The Flash
    Voracek is Wonder Woman because I want him to yell at me on Twitter.

    When there's trouble, you know who to call -

    TEEN TITANS!

    I know you can't see them in this pic, but there are a bunch of TT figures in my case.

    I was as old as Methuselah already back then, but I watched a ton of it too. Love that show.

    This drives me crazy. Here we have one of the best players in the league for a while now, and the best goal scorer he has ever played with is scott hartnell. At some point claude needs a finisher, for him to go this long without one is kind of crazy.

    He has Couturier.

    Tied for 6th in goal scoring.

    Interesting little stat-list... I thought so anyway!



    Also can imagine a world where the only players amongst the top 20 who does not end up in the HHoF are Gaborik and Vanek.

    All the other 18 either are already locks or have excellent chances.

    Fun Giroux stats:

    With his points tonight he has now got at least one point in 353 regular season games since the start of 2010-11...

    No NHL player has got at least a point in more games.


    That was also his 140th multi-point game since the start of 2010-11. Only 3 players have more:

    Crosby: 163
    Kane: 148
    Ovechkin: 148
    Giroux: 140

    Remember he'd cycle like a Hakstok zombie last year and not even attempt passes like the ones he assisted on tonight, or this season?

    If you do remember that, take that memory and repress the **** out of it. And if you can't repress it, perform a self-lobotomy to take away the pain.

    I think a small add to Kapanen + 1st would be enough. Flyers woud have retain some and take on Bozak.

    All the Montreal trade threads on the main boards were the best...watching Montreal fans say they would not trade Galchenyuk for Giroux 1-1!

    Great ****in season but I hope they do something to add to the core to try win. Our youngsters barring change are 3 years away from being the second wave that we need to win. Gotta spend and trade some chips so we get a chance.

    I agree. We have two superstar players in Giroux and Voracek, and they are not getting younger. Both have been incredible this season, and it would be nice to make a serious run sooner than later.

    However, young players hit their prime on average a lot sooner than people think. Like ~21-22 for forwards and ~22-23 for defensemen.

    Morin, Hagg, Lindblom, Aube-Kubel, Sanheim, Friedman, Vorobyov, Kase, Marody, Konecny, Laczynski, Allison,Provorov, Rubtsov...

    should all on paper be starting or in their primes by the end of the 2018-2019 season. And you have a player like Patrick who on paper should get into his prime slightly earlier.
