    so a guy who, before last year, wasn't a center puts up a lot of points. If ( hopefully when) we get better center depth, we move that 50-60 point guy back to a position that he is better suited for and he STAYS a 50-60 point winger ?

    yeah that makes a ton of sense.

    Negative value since he plays for Montreal, probably worth a mid-high 1st and a good prospect on any other team (that isn't Toronto.)

    After last season, there’s a HUGE question mark next to that statement. Each brings something unique. That said, Domi needs to prove he can do it more then once.

    Every player on the Canadiens sucks except for player the thread pertains to for the purpose of propping up said player.

    No matter what we think of the player, the transition from wing to center is very difficult for any player.

    He was only 23 last year, players can get better as they enter their prime. It doesn't make sense to assume his shooting percentage at 21 or 22 was the best he could ever achieve.

    He’ll likely have a higher shooting percentage than that at some point in his career, I agree. I just don’t think he’ll shoot 13%+ again frequently.

    Which isn't all that bad considering the only thing we gave up for him is a guy who has more coke than blood in his body.

    I'm being facetious (idk if Domi will even stay C), but Koivu and Plekanec would have been excellent 2C instead of 1C, which Montreal still lack.

    That said, if Kotkaniemi, Domi, Poehling all end up being Koivu/Plekanec levels, the lack of star power could be offset by the depth they would provide. If one ends up a legit 1C then we are talking business :)

    I think Domi as the same value then Gallagher by now.
    It's not about just the stats (Points) but everything else on the ice.

    Another 50pt player?

    Lets see him hit 72pts again. Prior to this, his high was 52 and his low was 35, also on bad teams.

    But its equally as likely that he hits 72 again vs he will revert to his career average. I hope he does hit 72 again but its far from a lock.

    it seemed to fit domi like a glove.
    And when Drouin did it, he was the worst 1C in the league by a HUGE margin.
    The titanic's maiden voyage went better than drouin down the middle.

    yeah he doesnt have the value of gallagher currently, even if he stays in the middle.

    The issue here is that he was also anchored by unsustainably bad PP.

    I don't think he hits 70 again playing Center (barring ridiculous sheltering) though.

    Everyone would (and Nylander is yet to parlay his skillset into something better than Domi's last season, while also being VERY underwhelming last season). Also, winger vs. center.

    I keep forgetting that he's 34 and had a career year with no signs of actual progress, genius!

    I would say at least 1p/gp is elite. He was very good last season, but not elite.

    13.5% is pretty high for a guy who has primarily been a playmaker throughout his career. In his first three seasons he averaged 8.7%. His on-ice shooting percentage was also high at 10.7% at 5v5. Sustaining that over multiple years would put him at the top of the league.

    I'm continually amazed at how daft some people are but they continue to rise to the occasion.

    I never said he couldnt progress. I didnt even imply it. In fact, I said I hope he DOES hit 72 again. All I said was is that its possible he doesnt.

    Montreal had what .... 4 or 5 forwards that had career years last season. The possibility, despite Habs fans denials, that they hit lightning in a bottle that may not replicate. Sure, it certainly can again and I would love to see it. But its not a sure thing.

    But, please, continue on with your inanity ...

    Gotta discuss both sides then. The habs were a very good 5 on 5 team. I would anticipate a drop there.

    However, they also had a God awful power play, so perhaps there will be a bit of a rebound in that category to somewhat compensate for 5 on 5 drops.

    I'm not sure how stating that is some form of denial. I'm thinking about 65 points for domi next year if healthy.

    Domi is a better player everywhere on the ice outside the faceoff while been the same age. Goal/Assist/Pts/Grit/+-/etc

    Nice try tho.
