    This thread is kinda hilarious because there’s a group of people who are posting everything sarcastically, then a group defending Zadina against the sarcastic posts, and a few legit people who think Zadina is busting at 19.

    This is very true, there's a lot of sarcasm driving debates in here and that's kind of funny.

    But as one of the few people that think he is "busting at 19"... what are the rules for when I am allowed to form an opinion of my own?

    I can't say "I don't think he is going to be a star in the NHL" because everyone responds with "LOL HES 19 LOL".

    Am I allowed to say "I don't think Alec Regula is going to be a star in the NHL"?, Or will that be met with "He's 18 you can't write him off yet!"

    Am I allowed to say "I don't think Otto Kivenmaki is going to be a star in the NHL"?, Or will that be met with "He's 18 you can't write him off yet!"

    Am I allowed to say "I don't think my next-door neighbor who has never played hockey in his life is going to be a star in the NHL"?, Or will that be met with "He's 18 you can't write him off yet!"

    Is this just top-10 picks you're not allowed to form an opinion on? What are the rules here?

    He is big with a shot. I'd give him time. May not live up to expectations but i think he can become a decent NHL'er

    You're mocked because your justifications for your opinion are bad plus minus and "Lucky points."

    What's the price of gasoline in 2024? I'm considering an EV but it's looking like the guy with 4 NHL goals is a sure thing.

    If you cant figure out the difference in these comparisons then no one is going to help you here.

    Forming an opinion of a 6th overall pick who is having a solid season is fine. I dont think anyone is saying hes a guaranteed star in the NHL. Its pretty hard to write him off from being a top 6 player right now though given what hes shown in the last 2 years

    He's not having a solid season though. Over half of the goals he's scored the light was in the goalie's eyes and the ice was flooded too heavily.

    You can form and say whatever opinion you want. People will laugh at you if you really think his production points toward him busting, but that’s their opinion

    His two goal night in particular, the goalie was really gassy and was so concerned with holding a fart in that it distracted him.

    On the board today. Probably a ridiculously lucky bounce. Or maybe the goalie felt bad and stood beside the net.

    Supposedly Zadina now has two, tonight.

    To answer the thread title, I believe he's been found.

    Dude, Zadina isn’t busting. He will be a top 6 forward if not too 3 forward for years to come. His ability to see the ice is amazing, passes the puck with perfection and has a sneaky slapper.

    What suggests that he’s going to be a bust? Please. Enlighten me with examples. I can’t wait.

    I’m not in the group that thinks he’s going to bust.

    For crying out loud give the kid some time before writing him off. Very few picks take the league by storm immediately after they are drafted.

    34 points in 21 games is pretty freaking good.

    That's in the AHL, not the NHL.

    18 year old struggles on a garbage team and is a bust after 40 some odd games? Seems legit.

    Lol, this guy really took the thread to heart.

    Relax there, buddy. Words on the inter webs don’t mean much.

    Lol, this guy didn't read the thread.

    I was the only one who pointed out the OP was trolling, which the OP himself acknowledged.
