With all due respect to you both, he's already the best ever, regardless of a win or loss in this game.

I agree. Good points. I actually like Kessel. I think he's a dude that just likes to play hockey. He doesn't want to be a leader or face of the franchise, just to play hockey and score goals. Those guys are fun at pick-up, but not in the NHL.

Well said. I will disagree on the 20-30 goals and 80 points though. There are a lot of other tangibles Subban brings on the business side of the equation, such as jersey sales, branding, and market presence. I believe that is a part of his $9M salary as well. If Subban wasn't Subban, but just put up the same points and was the same game changer he is now, it would be interesting to see if he would still be worth $9M

I didn't split it by conference, but 60% of the top 15 teams are in the top 15 in overall standings, and 60% of the bottom 15 faceoff teams are in the bottom 15 of overall standings. So your claim stands up. Nice hunch.

I remember back in NHL 2007 or 2006 or 2008 I forget, but Saku Koivu's toughness was 99. The one time EA Sports got a rating right on the money.

@CJ I saw your volunteering message yesterday but didn't get a chance to respond. Here in Hamilton I participate in a program called Snow Angels. It's a pretty good program, you get as many houses in your area as you can handle, and after a snowfall you shovel driveways for people that don't have the capabilities to do so. I have the same 3 houses I do every winter and even though they say not to talk to the house owners, they usually come out and thank you. It's a pretty good way to get some exercise and perform a good deed. I'd definitely recommend looking into it in the Ottawa region. I'd be willing to bet they have something similar, if you're looking for some volunteering opportunities.

Ya exact same actually. Just RDS, no HD. So we're in the same boat. Good to know I wasn't the only one. That will be great if the blackouts are lifted for people with Cogeco. I remember someone mentioning they received a memo from Cogeco saying that there would be no blackouts but when I talked to them they had no idea.

Anyone in the Hamilton area have the game on RDS yesterday? I don't even have a subscription for RDS with Cogeco but the game was on last night. Just curious if there were more that had access. Makes me wonder if the games will be blacked out starting in the regular season.

Read a lot of good posts about our D this year. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see all of Tinordi, Beaulieu, and Pateryn up this year. I could very well see a pairing of Beaulieu-Weaver, and Tinordi-Pateryn rotated in and out throughout the season. Tinordi and Pateryn played together in Hamilton, and Beaulieu and Weaver complement each other on the 3rd pairing.
