Dont worry, his goal ‘corking’ is getting back on track.
Anyone remember that fan who claimed Laine could score at will?
My guess is that he just doesn't want to show boat so he has been missing on purpose.
I don't know who you are referring exactly, but I am one of those who saw free scoring Laine. At will, that's what it looks like. Multiple times actually.
Now when it goes in again, you should too put some time for watching him, so you won't miss anything and you don't have to come here to make that kind comments again about Laine's fans.
I’m sure the goals will increase during his contract year
I'm here to help you buddeh, have a look at your posts "like". He used to be a certain "Dad" on here. Multiple 70g 150pt claims that didnt come to fruition.
If your a big fan of goal scoring have a look at the leading goal scorer from that draft year. Incredible numbers so far.
Is he still addicted to Fortnite?
He still plays it:
Nalle_Puh29's Fortnite Tracker Matches
About 12 matches per day on average. I don't know how much that is in minutes/hours though.
Seems to be about 15 mins per match. So he plays about 3 hours per day.
Fortnite addict or not he would still be a healthy #2 goal-scorer on your team.
Do people actually keep track how long he plays lol he’s having a great season because he’s not fraging in fortnite but giving call outs now
I think you meant third, Nylander has 25 and we both know who's in the hunt for the rocket
P sure that guy is a buffalo fan wtf
He's still a great player but yes, the claims he would score more than Gretzky were a touch silly.
1) I've watched him quite a bit
2) NHLers don't even get a shot on net at will, much less score goals at will.
3) I asked a question about one specific fan; I did not make comments about Laine's fans.
Laine is a great goal scorer. It's enough to be a great goal scorer without the dumb hyperbole.
Are you always so defensive? I want Laine to succeed
Oh no, is the Fornite watch back on?! I thought we got over that nonsense lol.
Laine's having a good season. Pucks are starting to go in for him, 9 goals in his last 9 games. After scoring 20 and 15 goals on the PP he only has 6 so far this year so if our PP can get hot he might make a charge at scoring 40-45 this year while likely putting up the most assists of his career.
Compare PP goals and there is your answer
Love Laine but the amount of people claiming he was more impressive than Ovechkin should feel embarrassed
Well both Laine and Matthews are still ahead of where Ovechkin was at the same point in his career.
lmao most by far the most overhyped prospect ever on HFboards.
It had the perfect mix: The Leafs haters, a very passionate Finnish fanbase, and comic book guy.
Laine started with 11 goals in his first 15 games or something like that and the hype went from crazy to downright ballistic.
Actually his 1st & 2nd seasons sure were pointing to him being the best since Ovie
Unfortunately he has completely destroyed his recent seasons with his summer "training"
They pointed to him have the *potential* to be there, but he wasn't really separated from those behind him.
For combined goals per game in the first two seasons of a players career since the 04 lockout he was behind Ovechkin and Eric Staal, barely ahead of Matthews and Malkin, and marginally ahead of Crosby and Stamkos.
Didn't he recently get a hat trick?
Staal had 11, 45 and 30 goals in his first seasons, with his "2nd season" gone due to lockout.
Laine had 36, 44 and 30. He was younger, and scored 44 in a season with less scoring than when Staal scored 45. Going by straight league averages, Laine's 44 was greater than Staal's 45, and he was younger.
Your math seems to be as good as Pulju's English. Only a Pulju would say 44 is greater than 45
Maybe you should learn how to read?
"Going by straight league averages, Laine's 44 was greater than Staal's 45, and he was younger."
Adjusted for the season (by straight up league GF averages), Laine's 44 goals was slightly better than Staal's 45 goals over 10 years earlier.
For example, Hull + Ovie lead the all-time adjusted goals per season stats, not Gretzky:
