Oct 10: Immediate Impact - Best 18 Yr Old Rookie Seasons

For my first blog post of the new season, I look at the forwards with the best 18 year old rookie season relative to their peers. For this I measured how each of these rookie forwards PPG compared to that of the average PPG of the top 10 forwards, top 30 forwards and top 50 forwards in the NHL during that season. I than listed the top 12 forwards that have entered the NHL at 18 since the league dropped the draft age in 1979.

Of course Gretzky leads the way but where does McDavid sit on the list and how does he compare to other generational talents such as Lemieux and Crosby. To find out CLICK HERE

Gold star for the first person who can guess which 4 former or current Oilers make the list without reading it.

Oct 12: Connor mcdavid will crack the 100-point barrier

This blog post I put my Connor McDavid prediction on the line. Last season I predicted McDavid to have 71 points in 77 games. Turns out I wasn't optimistic enough in terms of points-per-game.

This season I believe a healthy Connor McDavid will break the 100-point barrier. To read the breakdown of my prediction and the logic behind it CLICK HERE

That was a really interesting read. Thanks for that. Also, way to go with your prediction about McDavid's point total and the overall point race in the post below - pretty impressive.

Thanks very much. I was uncertain he would make it to 100 but that late season point streak took McDavid over the edge.

Keep an eye out for my draft rankings which should be out on Tuesday.

Great stuff! really goes to show how random the later rounds is. Value drops off huge after 34.

Value difference between 8 and 9 is larger than difference between 34 and last overall. Difference between 1 and 2 is similar to 15 and last overall

Or itd take 333 7th rounders to equal to value of a 1st overall
