Can we stop basing a player's performance on 7-8 games?

I feel like every single thread on here is the same title but just with <insert struggling hockey player here>. It's stupid. A lot of these guys are playing on new teams and/or went about 75% of a year without playing an NHL game. Can we at least give them a partial season before starting threads like "OMG what is wrong with Jordan Staal?!"

He doesn't look enough like Eric. He'd be successful if he looked more like Eric.

And Mike Richards, Ryan Suter/Shea Weber, Jordan Staal, Jonathan Quick, etc. Sure.

"Player X may or may not play well for the rest of this season."


That makes for such exciting discussion.

Ovechkin-Giroux-Seguin would be a good 3rd line

This is going to be par for the course until the NHL decides to run an 82 game season through to late September. 8 games is just more cause for panic with these stakes, even though the rationality behind it might not be very sound.

No! 9 games is enough to declare players busts and superstars!

Can we stop expecting everyone on the Internet to be completely rationale and patient?

Schneider is floundering based on 4 games.

"Do you think it was a mistake to part ways?" I'm sure Nashville is judging their decisions after 2 weeks of games.

The clubs aren't making any decisions right now but the fans can have their own ideas about how it will work out for them, career-wise.

Nothing. He's sniping posts like a madman. He's a shoe in to win the art cross (bar).*
