I really wanted to ask him how many 3rd liners scored as many goals as Ladd did with Atlanta the previous year, but I figured the answer would be along the lines of "uh yeah, it's because he gets first line minutes bro!"

And that's when you call your buddy Garret and say:
yo, what was Ladd's G/60

Ladd would be great in the bottom 2 lines of Team Canada. He's a better suggestion then whomever in the media suggested Kevin Bieksa

And I still cheer loud when Ladd scores. Have no idea why I really went on a rant about him.
That is a good post

Ladd's point getting will probably slow down but he doesn't have the type of playstyle that lends itself to "streaks".

Depends how you define a streak I suppose. He has far more multi game droughts than Kane last year.

What about a play style lends itself to more streaks?

Opportunistic playstyle lends itself to streaks.

Not sure what is opportunistic and what isn't. Why wouldn't tip ins and garbage goals be opportunistic?

Just took a light skim through, definitely satisfying. What ever happened to sportsmanship?

When you are that bitter and jaded about your own sports team's fortunes, you latch on to anything negative about the other team and blow it up. We do the same thing when the Bombers lose, only we're self deprecating about it. They sound pretty serious in that thread. Either way, opposing team fanbase meltdown is funny to see.

Why be bitter though? Because of one bad stretch? I mean they made it to the cup finals last year. Had a great run. Still several games above .500 this year. 6 division championships in the last 10 years. 3 Stanley Cup wins in the last 20 years. I mean that's not a super-dynasty but that's well above the curve, and pretty rewarding if you've been a fan for the last 20 years.
