    Assuming this is tongue and cheek - the guy has passed on 3 layup ENGs already this season to get his teammates hatties. Glad to see him start to snag them himself!

    The NHL booking is really comming to help Laine out here as they've booked a rematch of the 5 goal St Louis game for Laine. He can't get a much better chance than this to try and pull away again...

    No, Ovechkin has heard about Laines goal scoring ability, and he will give up like he always does. He's going to stop scoring goals, and fade into oblivion while Laine takes the top spot. -Sarcasm

    Obviously he will "strike back" the guy only has one gear, and its pure, unrivaled, goal scoring madness.

    I doubt he pays attention to Laine to be honest. He's been in the league for a long time, and he's seen lots of players put up a lot of goals. His goal scoring ability is actually one of the few constants that the league has had for a decade.

    Wait. Ovi scores a lot of goals?

    ****. My world had been turned over.

    And this Laine person .. I thought he too was a playmaker.

    I'm so glad we have all been set straight.

    Ovechkin is still the best goal scorer in the NHL.

    Laine seems to score in bunches and then go cold while OV is consostent like a dam' robot. I always bet on consistency.

    The main issue that no one is talking about is this, Ovi bought a special trophy case for his rockets... It only has space for 7 though, so instead of winning he's going to let someone else win from now on, the trophy case was too expensive not to use....

    Or he's going to win in this year, which I would put money on.

    If he keeps up the empty net goal production of the last two weeks, no one can stop him.

    Ovechkin isn't a star wars franchise. He'll continue to play the way he always does - top of the circle one timers.

    Cheap. (something you can expect from a random Leafs fan in a Ovechkin thread.)

    'Alien' math says that with this resolution (Streak/Slump=3+ GP) Auston is less streaky/slumpy (proportionally more black periods in his career pattern) than OV.

    44.3% Matthews' career games are part of some streak or slump, compared to 47.5% for OV. General appearance of colored patterns also support intuitive first impression.

    Extreme cases of both slumps and streaks influence Matthews' averages more than OV's due considerably smaller sample set.

    Too toily thing to go now to resolution of 2GP (which doesn't constitute any kind streak/slump IMO). :)

    ...

    Fix my stats! That help you, and everyone else more than your cheap in person remarks.

    Was being courteous in letting you know that you did all that work and I really had no interest.

    Thank you. I'm really interested about these kind things. It's not enough for me I just declare something without at least trying to back up it. Sometimes I fail, sometimes I do not.

    This time I didn't, until someone comes with better arguments and better stats.

    ...and yes! I can easily go to cheap comments too, but it is not my only input to this site.

    ...and yes! I expect OV brings the 8th astral babe back to home.

    /end.
