This thread got off on the right foot.
Artemi Panarin's 61 points so far this season would have led the Rangers in:
If Panarin keeps scoring at this rate it will = more leg kicks which will = wear and tear on his leg/groin/hip which will = him having to retire early which will = the Rangers getting out of the final years of his contract
Even if he is down to 50% in his last years he will still be a bargain
He’s kinda good.
Dude has basically 70 before the all star break I mean come on.
Enough with the "points" - yes, he has great stats, very observant.
He's also exceeded every expectation - as a teammate, professional, leader, worker, performer, entertainment, heart, pride, personality, etc etc etc.
He is the best.
67 points in 45 games, holy cow.
Plz just be this good or close for a while. Plz
I wanna be wrong about getting him so badly. Was / am worried about timing.
Plz when we play MEANINGFUL games in spring let him be this
If one of us were to have said this past summer that we expected Panarin to score 100 points in a season, that post would have been charged as an unrealistic expectation for any player. Now we are just over halfway through this season, and a claim that Panarin will score 100 points this year would be charged as unrealistic because he is pacing to blow well past that benchmark. This guy has placed himself at the absolute center of the organization in hardly a half-season.
That million dollar smile on the bench
I love Bread
Games like tonight make a potential playoff birth very exciting. Panarin can carry us.
Eleven million dollar smile babayy
No he can’t.
See vs STL
We want a winning team not one guy
(EDM BUF say hi)
Its amazing how he doing other guys on the ice better.
The real crazy part.... what happens if he plays with 1st line talent/finishers? There's no doubt that he benefits from cerebral/high IQ players but there's room for improvement in that area... as well as PP production.
He's on pace for 90+ Even-Strength points... We're talking about a category/tier with Gretzky, Lemieux, Bossy, Coffey, LaFleur, Esposito, Jagr etc.. All-time greats... Only 13 players in NHL history. Jagr was the last to do it in 1996.
if he continues like this the Hart should be his even if we don't make the playoffs. It wont happen but he's the hands down MVP so far. All the other top players have other top guys riding shotgun with him. Panarin as Strome and Fast. And he's doing it all 5v5.
10 more points than any other player in the NHL at Even Strength. That's absurd
Agreed tho honestly I'd put MacKinnon a tad ahead of Breadman for the Ross. Yes MacK has Rantanen and Landeskog typically on his side but both those guys were out for a long stretch of time and MacK pretty much by himself with some help from Makar kept the Avalanche afloat and not only elevated his own play enormously, he made guys like Donskoi and Burakovsly look like all-star wingers which we all know they are not.
So if it were me as this very point in time for MVP, I'd go:
MacKinnon followed by Panarin, McDavid and than Pastrnak.
He might actually be the best player in the world right now. His competition is McDavid and MacKinnon.
That is one inappropriate sounding typo...
Stealing that stat to brag on main board, that's ridiculous. Especially considering who is line mates are lol
4 games back I made the argument, Panarin would be the only one to challenge McDavid for the scoring title. I argued that if he scored 8 pts in his next 4 games, which wasn't unreasonable, then he would be in reach of McDavid. Well, after the 4 games, he didn't get 8 pts. He got 12 and is now 4 pts behind McDavid with two games in hand!
I see no reason for him to slow down. It's amazing McDavid has a challenger for the title. The Breadman has cometh.
