I recall saying 500 and then trending up.
Like you I'm too lazy to look though.
Luongo peaked in 2007 and 2008, before that groin injury. He had great numbers last year but that was by far the best defensive and offensive team he's ever played behind.
Yes and it's almost exactly the same team we currently have which is prety much exactly my point in this thread.
This is the exact same team that had one of the best regular seasons ever last year, and then went to the final. Anyone who thinks they wont be a top team this year is off their rocker.
Kesler has had some chances around the net, but for the most part this year he's wristing it off the glass or the opposing defenceman from way out. He gets one or two good chances a game right now at best, and he plays with the Sedins on the PP. You are totally overstating his offensive looks.
He is getting a ton of shots and chances. Everything is just a split second too late or a few inches wide. Against Chicago for example he had 2 shots on goal but 4 or 5 missed shots and 4 or 5 shots blocked. Further to that he threw another half dozen or so passes that were just a touch off as well.
He is all over the puck and there is a ton going on in the offensive zone when he's on the ice, but just about everything is being bumbled. If he were invisible there would be cause for concern but he's not at all. In fact he's been one of their most prominent players, just not necessarily in a positive way.
That will change, I'm not sure of much but I'm sure of that.
I am not a babby, and in fact I have never encountered a babby (glare). And stop smiling at me. It's weird and unprofessional.
