50 in 38?
Goal-per-period = 1
No vid nor gif for his goals?
25% of his yearly NCAA goal scoring production in one NHL game. Pretty crazy.
Outscored Mete NHL total.
Tbf I'm tied with Mete for career NHL goals
Can't ask for a better start.
damn, welcome to the show
God knows. Brady Tkachuk apparently finds it much easier scoring goals in the NHL than in college, so why not Poehling ?
He could pull an Eller or Boulis
So guys, after Poehling scores in the 3rd, how many more goals do we need to win this game?
I dunno if it's a dream or it's the reality. I'm slapping my face at a high frequency to be sure.
I love guys who are on pace for 8 goals per NCAA season and 246 goals per NHL season.
Maybe he would’ve been ready this season
If he plays a mere 12-13 seasons and keep up this pace, he's gonna end up with like 3 000 career goals.
Guess what? That would but him at 1st all time, about 2 000 goal ahead of a certain Gretzky. Imagine if he plays 25 seasons!
Okay I'm done being a Leafs fan
Well, when they're on my team, hell yeah.
Impressive first game for sure. Let's just hope some people go overboard expecting a Calder trophy next season or something.
I do think he could have played this year and done fine, which is why I could see him making the team next year as the 4th line center as we always rush our top prospects anyway and he's already got NHL size, skating, speed while working hard at both ends, finishes his checks, good playmaker. If he doesn't make it, I would say for certain he'll play some games next year.
Some people are gonna be having non-realistic expectations for him because of this game. Then again, what else is new.
Indeed. He was often compared to Mittelstatd who had 5 pts in his first 6 games. Buffalo fans lost their collective hats for him and the Sabres traded RoR to make room for him to be their 2c. Mittelstatd disappointed in year 2 not because he had a bad season but because the hype on him was just too great.
I'm still certain Poehling is our 2c. I'm higher on him than most people. I think he's a safe 50pt player. I just don't want the hype machine on him to roll too hard yet.
How’s that shot @WeThreeKings ?
