His numbers would be better but it's not that IMO. It's how he's engaged in the game. He's inconsistent in how involved he is each game.

That's just an excuse, and it really doesn't hold. It's been the case for Bobby his entire career, including when he was part of the RPG line.

I think you could have gotten rid of either captain or boy. It's a little weird and redundant to use both. Examples: 1) okay, Captain Stats. 2) okay, Stat Boy. See?
I was going to use one of your examples but I promoted u to captain since u took the time to look up all of Bobby's stats game by game lol


And I'm going to leave on that note

I'm cool with it... But there might be a couple power play goals mixed in
the middle of one of his scoring droughts... Unless you think he wouldn't work on the number 1 power play... Then I stand corrected

What happened to the middle ground I wonder
Yes, it his job to be a leader on the ice. And you do that by playing hard every game. When you're not scoring you should be hitting, forechecking, backchecking, playing strong D, etc. When Bobby's not scoring you usually don't even know he dressed for the night. That's not acceptable.

Completely off the topic, but why do people bring up their age on forums as if it in some way validates their opinion as being better than everybody elses?

Regarding the topic(s), yes Bobby is a streaky player. But you can also call his season stats rather consistent, but he's definitely not the guy you go looking for leadership on the ice. He's the Semin to the Ovechkin, the Kane to the Toews etc, the guy who can't carry a team but can easily make you a contender.

On Selanne, I fear that he's too stubborn to take a rest. He'll end up overworking himself this season, think that he can't play on the NHL level any more and call it quits. If he's anything like the average Finn, he just can't admit that he needs a rest.

That's a great point.

Ryan's inconsistency is unsustainable.
