Detroit is in a playoff spot, lost 4 games in a row, and Yzerman rewarded them at the TD with literally nothing. Not surprised if they miss.

Speaking about Detroit, why wouldn't a team like them sign Kessel and try to get into the playoffs? I know he can't play in the playoffs, but I'm sure he'd be a small boost over their bottom 6.

They should be tanking for 1 more piece. Who knows, they might win the lottery and land Celebrini.

What is Steve thinking grabbing Holl etc.

Phil the Thrill getting robbed of 1000pts is pure BS.

I suppose it's possible, but you can only move up 10 spots in the draft now, I don't think they fall that far down the standings.

Detroit signed a few guys longer term who are on the wrong side of 30, not sure why they aren't going for it. Makes no sense to me.

I understand Vancouver maybe not wanting to sign him, but surprised he couldn't find a place to play elsewhere to at least finish the season.
If he limited his options due to contract demands or only wanting to sign with a contender, it would make sense, but if he's just shooting to finish 1000 points or even wants to find a landing spot for next season, it couldn't hurt for him to return to Pittsburgh or Arizona to give them a good story in a lost season. Even Chicago or San Jose could work on a league minimum contract with no term.

Me either, especially considering Patrick Kane’s aav is very low right now as the surgery he was coming from historically had poor results. (The internet said it I guess it’s true idk).

I felt they should add ontop of that value boost they’re experiencing. They have abundance in every prospect category except forward. I could understand them holding off if the forward were the trade demand, but still.

Anyway; kane isn’t gonna be less than 3 mil a year again unless somebody gives him enough term to get the price that low. Would be nice to see him in the playoffs one last time. Even tho I dislike him cause blues fan.

Side note I drove round trip Seattle and back to watch a blues playoff game in which Kaner sent us home sad in double overtime. Was even interviewed on the broadcast cause of my literally 6 day drive to watch that game live. Frank Cusamano did the interview. Long drive home. Thanks Patrick Kane for that misery.

This one

70 goals as hasnt been done since the legend of Selanne in 93 and nobody has come close since Ovie in 08

Thorton pushed for 100 assists a few times in his prime days

Because he's cooked, man. The team that got the best look at him playing in the A, whose coach is his best friend, took a look and said, "nope, that isn't going to help".

Loveable guy, but he was gassed 15-20 seconds into shifts in Arizona. He's a couple years older now.

They didn't sign him because they couldn't make the money work, kinda screwed him over.

As a fan of the player, whoever made the decision to not sign him saved the Canucks from Tocchet-Kessel. Underrated move of the deadline. Nucks fans should find him and build him a statue.

100 assists means 100 goals were scored by your team.

Scoring 100 goals is better than scoring 70 goals.

So, the answer to your question is 100 assists.

There have only been 2 NHL season with 100 assists by a player not named Gretzky. Lemieux and Orr most recently in 89.

There have been 10 70 goal seasons by a player not named Gretzky.

I dunno. 100assists seems a little more elusive.

Asking whether 70 goals is better than 100 assists is sort of like asking whether Ovechkin is better than Crosby.

Ovechkin helps himself score while Crosby helps everybody score.

I never understood the hype between their rivalry, given that they're two completely different players.

In general players will probs always admit to wanting to score more goals than assists. As goal scoring is fun ask Mark Stone. That man always acts like he scored his first. Now not to say nothing is bad with generating assists but its arguably a secondary goal unless your a Dman.

As you do need a goal to generate a primary or secondary assist wink


Both are good accomplishments but got to admit when looking at modern scoring reaching 70 goals be crazy. As the last guy to almost do it was Ovie with 65. How he has not reached 70 be a surprise

There's no such thing as an assist without a goal.

Depends... 100 primary assists means you helped a lot in 100 goals...

100>70

although, 100 secondary assists means you were there on 100 goals... Definitely not as impressive...

Learned a new rule today: If you pull the goalie in OT and concede a goal, you forfeit the loser point
