You guys need to watch Mika Zib a little more often. Hes hilariously low on this.
Last season Eichel was playing with Jeff Skinner when he scored 40 goals. So he can't say how Eichel hasn't played with anyone good.
Anyone who doesn't realize Point has been our 1C for two seasons now is just willfully ignorant. Stamkos makes for a great 2C/LW, but Point is clearly better now
This list was made in the off season. Going into this season, Zibanejad had only one season of scoring over 51 points. He's having a good season this year, but his placement going into the year was fine. If anything - it was a bit too high.
He owns a timeshare in Cancun.
I didn’t say that. I said he hasn’t played with a superstar. Skinner is a star. Not a superstar or elite. Anders lee scored 40 goals once too with Tavares. Skinnner scores 40 goals too with Eichels. Never had before even though he was always a good sniper albeit inconsistent before.
this year now that he’s paid and not with eichel, he’s been pretty bad to say the least. So I’m not sure what this had to do with anything. There’s a huge difference between a 90 point set up man playing with you when your a sniper like marner and Matthews and a career high 60ish pt guy in skinner who has an off year every second season.
You’d be expecting too much from people. They’d actually have to watch your team to know that. Can’t you tell from most posts that people just stat check ? Lol
PS I love points two way game. He obviously gets to play around a lot of great players, stacked powerplay unit but he holds his own and is going to be an elite player for a long time.
You forgot that it was only this past December when Sheldon Keefe out Matthews and Marner on the same line together at 5v5.
Didn’t forget that.
That’s still half the season to this point, I’m not suggesting he has to be carried by teammates, that would be ridiculous merely pointing out just like people do Eichels increases ice time that Matthews has increased ztsr power at least to a higher degree then eichel anyway and both influence.
You do realiZe, I’m not on a crusade but due to the large volume of leaf fans, mixed with how few people watch eichel, I was just stating the ovcious. Ps- getting involved in two freak accidents spraining your ankle doesent make you INJURY prone. There’s a difference.
And I don’t even call Mathews injury prone, never have in my entire life.
Brayden Point is better than ROR?
I never said anything about that. I don't care where people on HF boards rank players lol. You've very obviously got an issue with him being ranked ahead of ROR (and yeah, I'm pretty sure it's cause one of those two is a player on the team you cheer for), but also turn around and prove you don't actually know Point's role on his team. So I just don't put much weight into your issue with this ranking because you haven't done much work to actually know about the other guy you're trying to discredit.
So enjoy doing all that my man.
How is Toews that high? It’s not 2010 anymore. He’s been pretty average a while now.
Above Barzal Couture and Larkin?
Only 1 behind EP?
Is nobody reading when the list was made? their seasons last year looked different from this year.
Also one year shouldn't make or break a player.
He is severely underrated. As an Islanders fan, I was cringing when Ottawa traded him to the Rangers for peanuts.
Is Krejci 10 spots too low? Or 15?
Instead of the usual criticism of the ranking post, I'm curious to hear who everyone thinks is the biggest riser/faller is from the list?
-Pettersson or Zibanejad would probably be my biggest riser(s)
-Tavares would probably be my biggest faller
Robert Thomas will be on this list in 2 years
Wouldn't be surprised to see Zibanejad in the top 10-15 on this list next time around. Since the start of 18-19, he's averaged a point per game while being an elite defensive player and penalty killer. The Rangers' version of Bergeron pretty much.
