    Good in the room... Change that to 'Character Coefficient' Another 'Inspirational integer' What we really need to do is develop equations under the guise of minima maxima mathematics to quantify a players 'floor and ceiling' in means of production. Also, assuming ice-time can increase scoring to a point, then points per minute begin to drop off... The classic bell curve... We could create formulas that determine the optimal ice-time for each player based on maximization mathematical principles. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    I love satire... I had a legitimate laugh at a comment below.. Patch would have twice as many goals this season if he had Eller setting him up, well on his way to scoring 75.... ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    All the talk of the Western conference being stronger than the East... Perhaps a few years ago... I think the balance of power has shifted. Operating under the assumption that the west is stronger gives the impression that teams such as Stl, Anh, Nsh would be dominating the East. I see these teams with major weakness... Anh on D (very young) and in Goal, Stl in goal and much like Mtl have little elite scoring after Tarasenko, and Nashville has little elite talent at forward, and Filipi Forsberg is on his way to an implosion after a dominant 1st half (have him in fantasy, quite a decline) ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    It was a low head.. Not a high stick. Haha I was watching an old Habs game from the 70's recently, what was apparent is that the default position for all players stick was having the blade on the ice. In today's game during the delivery of a check players sticks are often flailing in an uncontrolled fashion. This is a significant change, controlling ones stick requires much effort and reduces overall intensity. The ongoing consciousness of stick control results in body contact where players hands are around there hips as opposed to the checks today where often times players have their hands below their chin and use their arms in an explosive fashion to deliver more force to their opponent. High hands leads to high hits,meh icy lead to concussions and careless stick flailing. There is a general recklessness in modern hockey. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    I don't see any favourites in the East. The Pens... I could see Fleury single handedly lose a couple key games... Any of the 6 below have a legitimate shot IMO, but I'll list from my fave to least, putting a premium on goals against above all else. My East Rankings.... 1) Habs 2) Rangers 3) Pens 4) Wings 5) Bolts 6) Isles ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Please use "pip squeak" for DD MC Cranks for Markov And if people weren't so sensitive I would suggest Black Magic for a certain player. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Really? Wouldn't Galchenyuk, PK, N8, Patch, and Price all be considered to be comparable to the classic "coming of age" genre of literature? ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    The entire culture of NHL hockey fandom has turned completely negative as a result of media coverage. The common theme has shifted toward pointing out problems rather than relishing strengths. HIO comment boards are focused on Manny Malholtra, Lars Eller, MT, DSP, and Emelin. Why is it that there is little discussion of Patch evolving into one of the premier two-way players in the game, leading the NHL in +/- while being a top 10 goal scorer? Carey Price charging toward a Vezina and Hart trophy nomination. PK Subban living up to a $9 million dollar contract, and with the injury to Giordano a front runner for his 2nd Norris Trophy. Galchenyuk continuing his upward swing and becoming one of our top offensive threats, on his way to a 23-27 goal season. Andre Markov easily being the best 35+ D in the NHL and proving the knee problems of a couple years back are behind him. (He and PK will easily put up the most points of any 1-2 NHL D combo). Nathan Beaulieu becoming more confident and showing he is capable of playing in the second D pairing, perhaps even a future partner for PK. The stories mentioned above seem much more important and pleasurable to discus than the trivial topics on here daily. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~
