This exactly. Arm chair GM's know more than anyone actually in the nhl. Period!
Youre missing the point.
.13 over these sample sizes is insignificant really but even if we want to make a big deal about it, you have to look at /60 (especially on the PP) to understand why 99 points in 83 games is actually slightly worse than 100 points in 91 games. It doesn't make sense to say that if you go by /GP models but perfect sense by /60 models.
Whats really exploded have been his goal numbers though with the extra icetime despite having to play through a couple of injuries.
Since the coaching change:
Goals/60 from centers in the NHL since Keefe was hired by the Leafs:
1. Matthews: 1.99
2. Zibanejad: 1.65
3. Stamkos: 1.63
4. Bergeron: 1.57
5. Aho: 1.56
Just in a different tier scoring goals as a center than anyone in the game.
He's so good at scoring goals that even if you wanted to go Goals/GP (which underrates his scoring), he currently stands at .582 for his career. Thats just behind Brett Hull at 8th on the NHL list all time and he's catching him, with Gretzky next on the list.
I think he might be a top 5 center in this league.
His /GP show all you need to know. 1.10 P/GP and 0.49 G/GP to 1.19 P/GP and 0.61 G/GP.
It’s crazy how underrated Drai STILL is , amazing !
Haha Hahahaha oh man did I need a laugh today. Bergy has been one of the best centers in the league for years. Please don’t admit you don’t watch hockey
Leon "centres his own line" Draisaitl potting three goals on slick feeds from McDavid. That's got to boost his ranking.
Lets also take Away Brett Hulls 400 or so goals. he got because he played with one of the greatest assist men of all time. God hfboards is dumb.
We all must have missed the part where Brett Hull was listed as a Centre.
Yes, we know that Draisaitl is much better than Matthews. Stop reminding us.
Also, this was at the beginning of the season. Nobody in their right mind has Draisaitl behind Mr. Selke/60 though.
Hmm not even honorable mention of last selke winner.so hes not even top 19 centre?interesting.
In case people missed it,
Don’t remind us of the foolish Barzal ranking. There should be a 2 in front of that 0, not a 1.
So...you haven’t watched him bro?
Cool to see Barzal getting the respect he deserves.
