That won't stop me from thinking that people who confuse such basic language are illiterate.

Every generation says that about the following generation. Congrats on turning into your parents.

Personally, I don't see any standout teams in the West, and wouldn't be surprised by any of a dozen or so teams ending up pretty much anywhere in the standings.

it is a joke, not really, that was an error. But if you read my post, i did write down Henrik Sedin is better than Richards. Burrows is better than Callahan. Nash is better than Kesler

It does take away from the meaning of the sentence.

There - place, here or there.
Their - possessive, their car was on the road.
They're - short for they are

Also this stood out (I didn't read your full post) 'they barley made the playoffs', but that's probably a typo.

Don't you mean if?

Best way to improve your grammar and spelling, invest in a half decent smart phone.
Personally have found my spelling has improved tenfold since buying my first smart phone.

On the thread, I mostly agree with the basics of the posts (past the ghastly spelling and grammar) one that sticks out is Colorado, no way do they not beat one of, let alone both of Alberta teams. Edmonton still doesn't have the structure or defense to compete for more than 5th worst at best in the League. Also Calgary is due for a down year from both Kipper and Iggy in the same year, Iggy scores 50, Kipper plays sub par. Kipper posts best stats since the Cup run and Iggy has like a 36 goal year. I see this year as the finale of the Flames semi competitive team before the tank seasons come.

Also you mention the West as the East a couple times in the East reasonings. Otherwise pretty bang on with the consensus on the standings.

Here's a novel idea: let's talk hockey in English, not illiterate teenager-speak.

I'll say what I say every time "Hocke.yy.Inside.rr" is brought up. You add unnecessary letters to words and you'll remind me of 13-year old girls every time. I was brought up in the MSN Messenger times. That's just the reality of the truths. If we want to talk like men discussing hockey, you'll use proper grammar to the best of your ability. It's actually annoying for some of us to see the English language that some people pay taxes to be taught in democratically-funded schools be abused like I have seen it abused. Even if I am just a teenager...please. Just try.

Why?

I understand that there is a limit to how many more points a defensman can achieve. Historically players also struggle to be consistently delivering at such extreme levels (e.g. both Sedins been above 100 points once each for then to "drop back" to more realistic levels). That said, Erik Karlsson is still young and developing. I'm not sure if I have ever seen a defensman with that much natural attacking ability. I honestly think he might break the 100 points barrier at one point - playing for the right team.

Ability wise I think he is even more dominant among defensmen (in attack) than Crosby is among forwards (not saying Karlsson is better than Crosby - just relative to other defensemen).
