You need to read more carefully:

Personally I do not believe more in jinx's than I do Jesus, Santa Claus or any of that sort of stuff.
I do find it amusing that others do though, and I do find it entertaining when people panic because of it
Hey! Santa does exist, Ive seen him!

Go for it. Because, frankly, it's insanely childish to think that a post on a message board has magical effects powerful enough to alter a hockey game.

How many "average" players do you know that have scored 5 goals in 1 game?
Well, obviously going by my logic, I can think of one off the top of my head.

As for "jinxing"...that's just silly superstition. Post away.
Ovechkin also shoots more than just about every single player in the NHL. The year he scored 65, he shot the puck (on net, not counting missed shots) 446 times--that's ~5.5 shots per game.

In comparison, the two years Gaborik scored 42 goals (07-08, 09-10), he took 270-280 SOG (~3.5 shots per game). With Gaborik being the primary shooter on his line (considering Duby/Richards/Cally all like to shoot and are all on a separate line), he could easily pot 50 (currently shooting at ~4.4 shots per game (~360 per season), on pace for 52-53 goals if he plays all 82 games).

If Gaborik keeps doing what he's doing, there's no reason for him not to score 50 this season. As long as he stays at or above his career average shooting percentage and keeps up his current pace of taking shots (shots per game are sustainable, shooting percentage should as well considering he's 100% healthy and his line has good chemistry).

I know, I want to. Just looking for an opportunity...

Lundqvist is looking strong today. 14/14 saves. Maybe it's shutout time today? If after the second period he's still doing well I'll ask in the GDT.

:-D

I just came to post here that he hasn't scored since this jinx thread was posted. A couple more scoreless games and I say we do a beat-down of the OP.

Just so long as people have someone to point to for the player's on-ice performance (or lack thereof), all is good, right?

How about not flubbing a completely unwarranted pass back to the point with a minute to go up a goal.

This game was a pretty good example of what pisses me off about Gaborik.

I know there's no HFBoards rule that this thread is breaking... but in the name of all that is holy... he hasn't scored since! Do the right thing, mods!
