    I don’t recall it being the “stacked team” that stopped Pavol Demitra in the final seconds against Slovakia to assure our place in that gold medal round.

    Furthermore, last I looked, the Canucks aren’t a bunch of pee-wees neither.

    Despicably despondent, I yawn as

    I agree, Tampa and Stevie Y will likely will be fine. But, if Vinny and/or St. Louis has their production fall off a cliff there could be big trouble.

    Could you imagine in 7 years from now (not unthinkable) he becomes the all time wins leader and there will still be detracters.

    He’s back to normal….

    Pouliot is getting more hits than AK.

    It’s 6 games without a point for AK.

    And in the games where he was scoring, he was taking between 4-7 shots on goal per game. Now he’s down to 2-3, if he even gets that.

    All his shots are missing the net now or being blocked. Good goalscorers/snipers find a way to score.

    And what I like least about AK is that you can see from game to game, since he hasn’t scored, he’s becoming more and more invisible.

    Watch the highlights of the Phoenix or Ottawa game a few weeks back on NHL.com. He’s all over the highlights, giving big hits and playing a strong offensive game. Now watch the highlights of the past few games, and your lucky if you even hear his name mentionned.

    That’s the way he is…

     I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

    Plante didn’t see regular time with the Habs until he was 25 too. Carey might finish this season at 100 wins or very close. That puts him almost a third of the way there and he’s only 23.

    Even if he averaged 33-35 win seasons, he could do it in 6-7 seasons. Its not impossible, and its fun to think about
