Okay well rather than get dragged into a humourless discussion about the meaning of "generating offense" I'll just point out that you could claim that "offense" is "generated" when the puck leaves the stick of the player who scores... usually pretty damned close to the net and well inside the opposition's blueline.

There is only three games left... but interesting question.
This came up last night on HF. Nope... playoff games don't count.

If Corrado keeps playing the way that he did last night, he should be ahead of Barker and/or Alberts.

How long before BoringDude throws him under the bus and blames AVMG for ruining the kids young career for rushing him?

Any takers on games? :roll:

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I think Ballard just saw his career as a Canuck come to an end last night. :rofl:

Corrado - 6'-2"
Ballard - 5'-11"

Corrado - Excellent Skater
Ballard - Excellent Skater

Corrado RIGHT HANDED
Ballard left handed

Corrado CHEAP!
Ballard EXPENSIVE!

LOL... maybe check with Bobby Orr? Offence was generated every time the puck got on his stick.. no matter which zone :)

Hey how did I get brought into this, I have always said AV does not give young players a chance.

Again why is Corrado even playing? because of injuries, if they didn't have any he would not even be given a chance regardless if there was 1 game left or 30. Division wrapped up or not.

So kinda like Dank's goal last night (smile).

Barker sure, but "those watching" probably noticed that Alberts was even better then Corrado last night. Perhaps the best run of games we have seen from Alberts.
