    No because it is close regardless of his last 8 games. I swear people freak out and start talking out their asses when a player has a slump. I mean is Malkin now an AHL player because he has 10 points on the season and has not looked good really so far this season? Absolutely not!

    Has any information been released about Heiskanen having prolonged symptoms of covid like Ristolainen?
    I mean, yes, there seems to be some kind of pattern but on the other hand, a lot of players underperform for an abundance of reasons every season.

    On the other hand, in a hyper-competative environment, even a small decrease in like, alertness or conditioning can make a big difference. A player suffering from those effects might not be be 100% sure something is covid-related himself, and you wouldn't want to bring just a suspicion to the media.

    It's almost like fans should stop over hyping young defenseman.

    I was told this would be a normal season, no different than any other.

    Oh, wait... I wasn't.

    The sheer number of star-level talent that has fallen flat on their face this season is more of an indication that one can only take so much from a year like this. Enjoy it but don't get bent out of shape if a player isn't playing up to their potential.

    Is this happening? My view it looks like the stars are shining as bright as ever. Unless we're calling every first liner in the league a star now.

    I’m sure he’ll be fine. It’s still very early on for the Stars and they had the rough COVID situation to start the year.

    Seems to me that this is a result of lingering effects from having COVID, some get extreme brain fog from it and seems like some players might have that unknowingly even.

    Perhaps you don't understand COVID? There are dozens of documented long-term effects of COVID. Medical science is still trying to figure them out and has very few, if any, proven treatments. It's probably safe to assume that they all haven't even been identified yet. I don't think it's a coincidence that several players who had COVID are having a difficult time.

    While primarily a respiratory disease, COVID-19 can also lead to neurological problems. The first of these symptoms might be the loss of smell and taste, while some people also may later battle headaches, debilitating fatigue, and trouble thinking clearly, sometimes referred to as “brain fog.”

    Using career PPG as deterministic for a guy with literally 2 seasons in the NHL, those seasons being age 19 and 20, is a very poor idea

    Miro Heiskanen is a player that improves ANY team in the league, significantly. Admire this player on skillset alone. Maybe he will never win a Norris but he'll be a world-class competitor for the next decade. Covid won't slow him one tiny bit in the long run, or even this season taken in its entirety, so don't let the trolls bother you.

    I've had covid. Perhaps you are too melodramatic?
    You would lose that bet. Badly.
    Ding Dong, that's why I wrote that he shouldn't play if he has other symptoms, genius.
    Who knows. If he suffers from covid symptoms, most likely.
    He doesn't have to play. Leon Bristedt in Rögle BK in the SHL took a break to recover from covid symptoms. He was back in action after 1 month.

    What about Josi, Jones, Zibanejad, Pettersson, Lafreniere, Malkin, Dahlin, Eichel, Karlsson, Larkin, Domi, Duchene, Hall and so on?

    I've seen more people asking "what's wrong with Player X" than I ever had in any season prior (not to mention all of the "Is Player X generational after his great start" bullshit). I'm just saying that it might be wise to reserve judgements on players for this season, good and bad. I mostly say this because I've seen a disproportionate amount of terrible to outright awful takes on this board (at least, more than usual) and am trying explain away some of that too.

    Way to miss the point.

    150 game sample size is a better indicator than 21 games.

    That is a horrible list. You listed a bunch of players on the leagues worst teams as your examples? :laugh:

    Go find me years where no "star" player in the league had a down year. You could find a list larger than that in any given season, did you seriously just list an 18 year old rookie after watching 2 of them struggle last year?

    Looks like you're trying your best to strawman an argument.
