It's "C" League.....in Southwestern Missouri. A league full of guys (and gals) like me who only started playing in the last few years along with some "B" players to help us out. But I do score a decent number of goals that result simply because I at least grew up playing road hockey, some shinny and think the game reasonably well. If I managed to lose weight to get faster I'd be in the upper quarter of the league. I was on my way at the beginning of the year and then blew my knee out and all this great southern cooking had that weight back on in short order. So back to the beginning!
I also never start scoring until the back half of the season when I figure out where my center is actually going to be (we play 3 seasons a year and the teams are redrafted every season).
But enough about me....Grabner will not score 70. I really dislike his play so far this year. It's very similar to what he did the first 40 games last year except this time he has some benefit of the doubt so he gets to play with Tavares and gets 18 minutes a night. Last year he was on the 3rd and 4th lines and ony because of injury. No question he'd be in the doghouse here if this was how he started the year...and for plays like on the Hodgson goal where he wasn't doing anything other than being a nuisance to his own team.
A goal is a goal Tant. In my 20 years+ rec hockey career, I've piled up more than 70 goals. Started playing forward at first then the last 10 years on defense.
Am I ashamed that I've abused beginners, seniors and women to achieve a big chunk of my stats? Hell no! After I rag the shit out of the puck, I might even occasionally pass them a cookie so they'll have something to brag about afterwards. Hey, I'm not a total douche! When you're as good as Magic40 or me, it's not cockiness, it's confidence.
Okay okay, it's because I bought one of those really expensive sticks a couple of seasons ago.
