You completely missed the point. Whoosh

It is my opinion that Pageau is better defensively, not behindthenet's.

Bonk brought that up with the Karlsson stuff.... If I like the Corsi and what not for Karlsson, I should like it for Spezza. I all said regarding this is that Pageau and Zibanejad are better than Spezza in that regard. I said NOTHING else regarding those stats.

One again trent, whoosh


Not only are Pageau and Zibanejad better at puck possession (some would say a is defensive strategy), but they are better at the traditional style of defense. My opinion based on watching all of them play.

I've responded to every post. Tell me, which point did I skirt around?

Oh wait, you can't, as usual.

I don't really think Tavares is better than Spezza. As of last season I think they are fairly similar. So, wrong as usual and pulling stuff out of butt.
