So yeah, putting much stock in last year's numbers is madness IMPO. :drink:


I guess that's the nice thing about a shortened season, eh old boy? When the stats don't support your argument you get to throw them away.

Unless they DO support it of course. In which case we will throw them out there again and again with no mention of how the small sample size might be skewing them.

14/15? :lol:

Not ready to go out on a limb for Silent G in 13/14, despite all your talk, wot? :mex:


I said in a year! Never meant to suggest he would surpass them this season.


Okaaaaaayyyyy.... so how many points will Hodgson get next season?

60-70, and he'll look good doing it too.

Look for lots of Topper's AHL-level toe-drags.

;)

How many points does Captain Optimism think the Twinkles put up this year?

Number of starts matters a great deal when it comes to judging a goaltender's performance.

Lou averaged 60 games per season over 12 seasons until last year's gong show.

20 games doesn't count for diddly in the face of that Señor Sillyhead. :thumbs:

Well he scored at a 32 point clip over the last half of last year. :hmmm:



Kassian had 4 points in his last 35 games last year which included 0 points in his 4 playoff games.

Sam Gangner, a guy you seem to love, scored at a 46 point clip the last 23 games of last season (despite being soft and crap in his own zone).

To be honest I don't see why anyone would love Ganger and loath Hodgson. From my perspective they are basically the same player.

Very good offensive centres who are undersized and don't skate that well.

Umm, like duh potatoe, because one of them USED to be a Canuck?

Why do you keep trying to drag Kassian into this debate? :crazy:

OUR conversation has not been about Kassian.

"GAGNER" is a stand up guy and has played 3 times as many games as the decidedly gay Hodgson

(if I may use that adjective).

Or are you going to try to say Hodgson has "character" or some shit. :lol:

Hodgson got hot for exactly 24 games of his thus-far 139 game NHL career (151 counting playoffs).

Hmmmm.

65 points (or more)... loser must use "I am so-and-so's bitch" as a sig for 2 months.

Keep usual avatars up.

Deal? :mex:

60 and it's a deal... if you are also willing to make a prediction on the Sedins' numbers this season.

Let's try to be a bit more creative than the "so and so's bitch" siggy though.

I think Avatars would be better.... :lol:

Fine, 60 points, sigs, no fuckin' welching.

But I would LOVE to hear a Sedin 2014 point prediction, puleeeeeez.
