You're not an idiot, the Corsi stuff is crap. People use it because they don't watch enough games or don't know how to form their own opinions when watching games. They draw up baseless conclusions and anyone with half a brain wouldn't take this Corsi stuff serious.

It's not crap. Like any stat, including +/-, it has a context. But as always, no single stat defines a player. Not even goals/points.

It would be funny if Hejduk scored and celebrated with the swim

Corsi (actually not that one but all those tools when combined) are very good at looking at defensive stats which are hard to judge.

Besides, who has time to watch all 30 teams on a regular 1-2 times per week basis? No one does, not even an analyst. And it's not like people's own cognitive vision is unbiased.

What? How the hell can that be? How can "ALL" the Dmen be playing too much?

Are you suggesting the Avs put some forwards on the blueline for stretches of the game to "lighten" ALL the d-men's workload? I sure as hell hope not.

They do that on the powerplay already.

I doubt we'll get to see the pregame ceremony for Hejduk since it's a NBC game. Hopefully they'll post a video of it on the Avs website.

He means they all suck and are playing in higher roles that they are not capable of playing in.

No ****!

So the Avs are suppose to lighten ALL the D-men's ice time by going with all forwards on the powerplay? Maybe they can put all forwards out on the penalty kill too in order to give ALL the D-men a breather and lighten ALL D-men's ice time.

C'mon man, the statement that ALL D-men are getting too much ice time makes no sense.

I would argue that they have plenty of #5 and #6 D-men so whomever is playing in those roles is well cast. I would also argue that Johnson is cast just fine as a top pairing D-man although a top #1 might be a stretch. Where the Avs are lacking is a 2nd top pairing D-man and a decent set of #3 and #4 D-men.

Even if they don't have a true #2, #3, or #4 D-man that doesn't mean that ALL D-men are getting too much ice time.

I assumed that bk=back.

I found this though: bk= British Knight, and lots of other weird stuff that bk could mean, but I suppose you weren't trying to mean those things.
You really have to shorten the word "back"? (if bk=back that is)

I'd like it too, but Sacco is adamant to put Mitchell there and break-up the well working 3rd line.

I lawled, but just now read the GDT so...

also, if somebody could post a link to a feed since it isn't being shown on GCL that'd be great. I'm not sure if you can watch it via nbcsports online or not.

If I say 2857 career points,
or maybe 894 career goals,
or perhaps 1963 career assists,

Pretty sure any ONE of these describes a certain player

Only one player in the league has the potential to amount to that many points. That should have been obvious enough.
