Discussion in 'GM Games and HF Leagues' started by Makaveli, May 10, 2020.
and this is from the guy that eviscerated my lineup last round.
Damn looks like we in trouble.
Read my 1st post in this page that explains why 9 of you are wrong. Not too late to change to the right side
Panarin is a LW, Keller is a LW, and Dahlin is a LD.
Read my first post to know why you 9 are right, and the other 7 should switch, not too late to hop on the Toronto hype train. You all know what a championship calibre team looks like, and hint, they don't have .909 starting goaltending
Just going to throw this out there, guys like @Panda Bear and @Makaveli throwing out their feelings for every matchup and giving reasoning I have mad respect for. If you can tell me why your team should win you definitely gain brownie points in my books, or if you're like @m0pe, while he may be my opponent and I truly believe I should win, I totally respect him debating it and stating his case as opposed to sitting idly by, so to all those of you partaking in the debates, I love it!
you guys really need to stop voting colorado.
yes, colorado has the best set of defensive/possession-driving forwards, but their defence is a clear doesn't have the same level of mobility or puck-moving ability. hamonic is the worst player of the twelve listed by a large margin, and giordano continues to get slower, which is a huge issue against the speed of players like svechnikov and rust.
and don't give me this crap about how price's numbers are only low because of his team. petry and weber on two different pairings is nothing to scoff at, and chiarot and mete both did more than adequate jobs at different points this year to complement them. hellebuyck's been behind a complete tirefire in terms of defence to the point where every single jets player is a black hole.
colorado's forwards and the leafs' forwards are a wash, sure
but leafs defence > colorado in terms of match up
and hellebuyck >>>>> price
i'll keep posting this stuff until toronto is voted thru btw
y do u hate me Panda
stop moping, dude.
Thanks Panda this is how I feel too, my D and G really are just far better in 2020... a few years ago Colorados likely wins but it's changed, players get old and slow, while other players truly blossom. Shea Theodore had a Norris calibre season, I can post all the articles and numbers and comparisons again showing it. He's essentially young Josi before people realized this eyear just how good the guy was, and he's on my 2nd par paired with Fox, and @m0pe I looked into the numbers, Fox had more even strength points than Marino total, and 7 more at evens (a 24 place jump in D scoring). The D and G really does just tip it
To be fair man, I don't think Panda loves me all that much either but he can make some good clear cut takes as evidenced above
can he move up to this round based on this pun
to be fair, i don't think Gio can fallen off that much in a year from when he won the norris. Yes i would take Josi but Gio is still a top D in my eyes. I like to base "now" not only off 1 season. I would much rather a consistently good guy in these games then ones who just had a big year.
Also re: Fox, he played more games. Their per game ES points was very similar.
I totally get the votes for Toronto, it's cool. I had you pegged as a top team, great squad you build.
But hey, gotta argue my side...I think it is close either way as much as Panda may not think
I like everyone here, actually, but I'm a tough nut when it comes to fantasy hockey!!
Gio struggles against extremely fast players these days, so if he's your top pair out against Rust and Svechnikov who have defenders who can play a great breakout pass, that's a huge problem.
I loved your team, its inside my top four, pretty much fluid from 3-5 for me, and I can always respect someone arguing their own sides, I did have mine and one other above though
Hehe I love my super breakout blueline, gotta have wheels
I don’t know if we’re going to get more votes, only 18 last round and we’re already at 16
We’ll start the semi finals tomorrow afternoon
that’ll be fun
I am about to open the Semi Finals Voting Thread. Congrats to all that have made it this far!
Congrats @hockeynorth on advancing past us. Good series, well deserved.
In player polls, the players of the NHL still vote Price as the best goalie in the league.
Your team was unreal and yours and mine were the two I felt could beat LA, and yours the only one I would really think could beat Toronto here. I felt mine won the matchup off depth but yours scared me the most
@m0pe, @Retinalz, @FanofBadHockeyTeam, @LatvianTwist those were some awesome teams, some I loved right from the start, and others I learnt to love after hearing why people liked them so much
Price has an aura to him that commands respect from his peers.
Unfortunately, it only works on his peers. He isn't the same anymore. He can still hit the peaks sometimes, but not as often. Blame injuries.
