    remember when Karlsson wasnt that great for a month or so to start the year? He is up to 41 points in 43 games and he has a 60% CF% (!!!!)

    Perfect example of people overreacting to temporary trends.

    I recall people on the main board claiming Karlsson was donezo after his rough start.

    to be fair, for years, we held out hopes for a lot of players, only to be let down. sure, some of his late finds are finally hitting, but i'll go as far as to say that a good chunk of our pessimism comes from the lack of good prospects we've had. THANKS DAVE

    Same is true for the Rangers. Though they kind of are tanking and started doing that when they sold everyone of value off last season.

    Henrique has been missing this season even with good line mates in Ritchie & Kase.

    Yeah both teams are competing for a draft pick, Vats goals per game are up at least, could be worse.
    I was worried he was never gonna be threat again with his slap shot, he could finish with 10G this year if he gets hot at the end of the season.

    Vatanen has 81 shots on goal and about 200 missed shots (just guessing) in this season. His slap shot is really inaccurate, but I like his wrist shot. Many of his assists have came from those situations where he just throws the puck towards the net.

    However, Vatanen's shot is still more accurate than Butcher's. That dude just don't know how to shoot the puck, which is sometimes really frustrating when the Devils are on the PP. Otherwise he is a great PP quarterback.

    Didn't he write a letter to the fans saying that they were tanking?

    Didn't this also take place half a year after they traded their #1 center for futures?

    That'll happen. Henrique is incredibly streaky. We've learned that Vatanen is guilty of that, too.

    The trade was still a good one. Both teams filled holes - albeit not with the "ideal" candidates, but with serviceable players that certainly fit needs.

    Panarin's gonna go back to Chicago, Bobrovsky's gonna go back to Philly, and the Jackets are gonna be ****ed sideways.

    Tough situation.

    Hahaha, it's always like that. People start speculating and "What if?"ing all over the place, and it's always like the guy overslept for a meeting or yelled at his coach during a bad game.
