I was going to start an Artie thread last night but lost interest due to back spasms since my window AC experience yesterday morning.

It seems a thread like this comes up every summer just after a guys sophmore season and 33% see the potential in all aspects and 66% want to trade said player for a 'elite' grinder & a 7th, or package that player with Redden, Newburry & 2nd & 1st for Malkin.

Then after the thread reaches 22 pages of "yes he is" , "no he isnt" nearing the season opener, the guy breaks out and is now untouchable in 95% of HFBoards eye's. 3 years ago it was Cally, 2 summers ago it was Dubi, Last year it was MDZ, albeit it was after his 1st season but it's never been against this board to break rank.

My goal was the way those threads preseed that players breakout season. Almost like a 'right of passage' here on the NYR boards.'s to Artie's break out season.

IMO, 18g, 26a was just the tip of the iceberg.

Let the trashing begin so the hockey god's can grant the kid the imortal status of untouchable in NYR fans minds next summer.
