7 games left.
With the way his line has been going I expect him to hit 30.
Points in 15 of his first 23 games (22pts)
Points in 9 of his last 11 games, (15 pts)
That's 24 out of 34 that he has scored at least a point.
Injured vs Vancouver on Nov. 26th (or was it 2 days prior vs Detroit) regardless.
Coming back from injury on December 19. The next 30 games, Mika promptly scored all of 6 goals and a scant 3 assists. 9 pts. in 30 games! That's Peter Holland production.
It's easy to see his injury was detrimental to his play, coupled with Kreids being out as well.
Just thought I'd share the actual numbers and what anyone might want to project.
Even though technically Mika missed only 10 games, one could easily guesstimate he actually missed closer to 35. Seems to me that a ppg from a healthy Zbad, isn't a stretch. A good thing.
Still say he isn't a TRUE 1A. Not yet anyway.
"I'm not actually posting the most insipid things imaginable and embarrassing myself in the process. I'm just showing how 'easy' you all are to stir up! By 'easy' I mean you post small, simple responses that question my intellect and make me feel like a dope. God you're all so easy in that regard! Why does that qualify as easy? Idk I'm just desperate to salvage my bruised ego!Ah- I mean you can't bruise my ego, it's hard as steel you soft, tissue charmin millenial!"
Yeah, I did.
I could've possibly had a some what of a normal convo with haveandare and shinchanyo but then the trolls decided they had nothing better to do.
Hey..but if you ever want to check out a bunch of useless hole digging memes or gangster rap gifs this is clearly the place to be
BTW..That Zbad really showed that last place team a thing or two last night, didn't he?!
Good news for you. Mika has become my favorite player on the Rangers, so that means he will likely be traded. Lol.
Lol..I don't necessarily even want to see him traded.
I just want him in a position where he belongs and that's not as the #1C
We should just forget the labels and be happy we have center capable of scoring 30 goals.
I don't know what generational forwards we've had that Rangers fans have such bizarre expectations on forwards.
No.. I'm not happy.
We're missing the playoffs.
Aside from that, I don't need you or anyone else telling me what players I should like or dislike for whatever reason.
Yet, if I don't agree I must be a ****ing moron right?
You have your favorites and I have mine so how about we just leave it at that..
I agree with part of this
I don't think anyone called you that
Yes, we should. In answer to your last paragraph/?.......I think it just may be we all want that kind of dominting player that you can count on every game and nearing 80-100 pts.
If my eyes aren't deceiving me......Kreids and Zbad may become just that.
New York Rangers' Mika Zibanejad is Key to their Rebuilding Efforts
“I want to be the No. 1 guy,” he told The Post last week. “This is the first year I’ve been in that position where my line is against the other team’s top line or checking line, and I think I’m learning how to handle it.”
Yeah, he said "I want to prove", let's not mince words here.
For me, that's a good thing. He doesn't feel he "already has" proven it's a good deal for the Rangers. He wants to do MORE, and be better. Right now, I consider him a very good 2c. It's not a BAD thing to have 2 very good 2c's, (1 impersonating a 1c) but do we have that already or even within the organization ? We don't know yet.
It's a good start anyway.
At what point is a 'very good #2C' simply a #1C?
This is a real stretch.
I know its a ****ty year but let's call things for what they are.
impossible. Haven't you heard?
Can't have a good convo when that's all i ever say now
I mean certainly no one will be denying it.
Zibanejad finding a way to stay motivated
Expected to play for Sweden at WC
Scoop up a bag of hair for a great stocking stuffer for a NYR fan.
What a softie, we should replace him with someone who has grit and skills like Cizikas.
Masterful job at twisting my words around just to take a shot.
But I'm not surprised that you have clearly have nothing better to do.
Good job bro
Who needs defensive fwds or penalty killers anyway?
Maybe we can just roll 3 lines this year
