Holy man, there’s other deals in place I’m sure but no ones commenting on then
It’s kinda ruining it tbh
Pick run, pick run, pick run, pick run!
*slams fists on table*
PICK RUN! PICK RUN! PICK RUN! PICK RUN!
drew doughty has name value but he’s objectively really bad at hockey relative to salary at this point.
He’s not great but I think you can blame that on being in a horrible team with no opportunity to win.
??? jack eichel is on a horrible team and is good at ice hockey
Because he cares more and hasn’t won a cup.
Put him on a good team, and he will be a top 5 defender again.
I have no doubt in my mind.
Still looks great when I see him play.
you watch lots of la kings games ?
top 5 ? MY GUY
drew doughty is bad because he’s subpar at ice hockey relative to his standard not because he doesn’t care.
Disagree entirely but it’s fine because he still has huge name value
Doughty is living off of rep, he gets the bad team excuse yet other great players still play well on bad teams.
His name value is massive though so I can't call it a bad pick.
doughty is ranked #193 due to things like ineffective passing that leads to poor contributions for generating shots for his team, a high failure rate for zone exits, and not even logging huge minutes against elites anymore
still almost a standard deviation above for denying zone entries tho
Oh by the way: THE CLOCK IS LIVE
this doughty debate is a downer
caused my trade controversy to lose steam, and LT is smart enough to not reply to the demand on proof
only a OG mod has that level of intellect
Well, the goal of this game is ultimately to have fun and enjoy the draft with other people while constructively debating picks and ranking methods.
If you're going to continue to not enjoy the game and project this lack of enjoyment onto others, you'll be removed as GM.
Your choice. Drop this nonsense and keep playing, or be removed.
full power to you, I respect it
does this rate up there with the Sedin - Benn/Seguin HF controversy
over the past three seasons, Guentzel is #3 in xGoals adjusted by shooting talent behind Ovechkin and Matthews. he's also super underrated with his passing.
and with eye test and playoff record, you can tell he's a gamer and is just so f***ing smart at finding open ice.
newest pandascores have him at #24, which suggests he is criminally underrated as per "he's just a crosby byproduct" rather than being seen as a legit star winger
I just need the ONE guy left on my board to fall..
*checks draft board*
17 more picks....welp
My list is still pretty thick but there’s one guy that I would love to have. Doubt he falls.
I got a few that I’d love to add.
I, too, have a list
He lasted 1 more pick...goodbye Parayko
If anyone has a #1 Stanley Cup Winning D available and is willing to get creative, PM me.
In the meantime, I shall debate whether to punt on D for a few rounds or give up on my restriction and suffer the consequences of being dumb
