    I guess I’m in the minority but I thought he was having another good playoffs.

    Do you a scientific explanation and data to prove your claims.

    That's good to hear. We just need to stay patient with KK. Timmonds did say he is more of a long-term project.

    Also he was ranked ~13th.. so, the Habs used their 3OA on him... apparently that makes him better.

    you perhaps have never spent any time around NHL athletes...

    you would probably be shocked at how slim/thin many of them are, both legs and upper body.

    meanwhile, some are built like brick shit houses...

    in that pick, i see a guy with beefy legs in comparison to the average i've seen. add the age and work ethic, and I suspect he'll be in the brick shit house category by his mid-20's.

    He was ranked higher than 13th on some scouts lists:

    They are more built like T-rex nowadays but all the players I've seen ,including myself have large legs,not like KK or Simmons. And AL legs are much,much larger than KK's

    Not saying you did,just merely showing a few examples of less than stellar skaters.

    If you think so that's your prerogative, I find he could do with better skating skills, it would only increase his ability to be more formidable.

    Legs are one of the easiest muscles to train and increase their size, especially the thighs.

    Yes, most hockey players have to buy custom jeans because their thighs much bigger relative to their waists.

    Here's subban in May of this year. Not the thickest lower legs, but has very thick thighs, where the power comes from:

    Not too much, just played with a bunch and went to a few parties, but that's a while back. Pretty much back then they all had big legs if I recall correctly.

    I can't see any thighs in that pic,and those calves are pretty skimpy imo. Yup pretty easy to get large legs if so inclined. Look at speed skaters legs,built for speed and endurance.

    Yeah, Subba's naturally skinny. But he did a lot of training off ice to build his legs up. His thighs at least are thick. Not sure If he works on his calfs normally and that was an offseason break time, or if he only builds up his thighs.

    There's so much wrong with this post I'm just going to say it belongs in the worst takes ever Hall of Shame.

    Stick to your "context" and XF, Corsi takes.

    You continually create false narratives to tear down because that's easier for you to do than argue in good faith or defend your viewpoints. Classic strawman tactics. In addition, anytime someone raises a good point or counter-argument, you simply ignore it. Then you chime in later and act like you've been participating in the debate/discussion like everyone else. There's no point in engaging with you until you're ready to have a discussion like a mature adult.

    Perry is slow but has great balance. Balance is almost always the premier attribute of great skaters (combine that with edge work and speed and WOW)

    Did KK play a different schedule than any other player on the team?

    Perry is an amazing player , he was not really fast in his prime either but his hockey IQ is out of the roof and hes always in the perfect spot. Those kinds of players are really rare. The guy wants to win and accepted a 750k offer on a taxi squad to have 1 more chance and he's thinking it.

    This could be perhaps only a 1 year time so let's enjoy it while it last.

    I said from the beginning of him playing this year that he brings unique attributes to the team.
    His hand eye coordination is amazing. His outside stick move is among the best i've ever seen . He's an example of a guy who knows how to buy himself time to make a play. Time and space are everything to a player in the NHL. You do it with speed or strength, or in Perry's case with amazing guile.

    and you stick to the attachement to ungrounded emotional takes with no basis in anything but a very poor understanding of elite sport in general, and hockey specifically.

    the stats are just a way to ground, or challenge, visual assessments. Useless to those who rely solely on emotion, i appreciate that.

    hence why not all opinions are the same.
