I remember the last Hab to show similar "promise"... Latendresse. Let's hope this turns out differently. ps. I like the signing.

Goes to show how useful statistics are.

Chicken or the egg? Hey, these teams are really good, so let's statistically analyze what they are doing well. Now that we have the stats for those good teams, lets develop a metric upon which to judge all other teams going forward.

I think that confirms what everyone speculated below... just a literal description of their colours. As if a five year old named them.

This has got to be, hopefully, one of the most intentionally ironic posts of all time. ... "almost a slog to complete"

Which sport involves more acting. Soccer or pro wrestling?

I love DD, always have. I think he is an amazing center and for his value, there are few equals in the league. It still baffles me that he gets such criticism, especially when the worst most people can say is that he is good, BUT only because he gets favourable wingers/matchups/zone starts/choice of strippers after the game/... However, despite my enduring love for DD, I really believe that Pleks is totally on another playing field. How many times did we see Pleks neutralize some of the top offensive threats in the league. He has the ability to completely shut down guys like Ovechkin, Crosby, Stamkos, etc. And when he's not assigned those roles and allowed to simply play offense, he does just that ... very well. And yes, with less favourable wingers in Gionta/Bournival/Moen!/ any other odd end MT can't fit elsewhere in the lineup. Pleks' value to the team should not be underestimated and they would be hard pressed to fill his role with someone that can bring everything he does. DD on the other hand is replaceable, albeit likely at a higher cap hit.

Do any other teams' fans get to enjoy every game no matter where they are located?

So who does he blame for that final kick?

Or.... completely collapse again before halftime.
