Let's see...Hejduk had scored 7 Goals + 5 Assists = 12 Points in 17 Games before he was named captain.

A pace of 33 Goals + 24 Assists = 57 Points <- [EXACTLY his average for the past 6 years]

After being named captain, he only put up 7 Goals + 17 Assists = 24 Points in the remaining 64 Games he played.

You can choose to believe that the captaincy had no effect on his game, however, please note that I've been watching hockey for the better part of the last 30 years and I've NEVER seen that kind of drop-off in a player that consistent that wasn't injury related. The drop-off is ALWAYS way more gradual. Even more support to the theory that the captaincy had a major effect on his game is that he gave it up after only 1 season, leaving the team in the hands of a 19 year old. If it didn't bother him, surely he would have kept it for another year?

Please quote me on this, IF and WHEN we do have a season, he's going to look much more like the Hejduk that's been putting up 25-30 goals and 55-60 points than the guy we saw last year.

It's also interesting to note that both Jones and McGinn, who ALSO both finished with 37 points are top-9 forwards based on how they finished the season but Hejduk isn't with his 37 points with how he started the season.

Very rarely can you pinpoint the exact date when a player starts to SUCK but apparently with Hejduk, it's November 14th, 2011.

Last 6 years average:
73GP 27G 30A 57PTS

Last 3 years average:
70GP 24G 29A 53PTS
Agreed on all counts. Just from watching Hejduk's game last year, he was fine physically. He was still a good skater and his hands were still smooth as silk. He was just making a lot more mental mistakes than he usually does and he couldn't find chemistry with players that he usually does. I think he can have a veteran's bounce back year.

Well, Barrie looks fine so there's at least that...

and despite the horrendous audio, this is the best stream I've ever had.

I like how the announcer can't say Barry Goers' name without saying his first name as well.

I'm sure there are fans of other teams who are sure we have a player with the last name 'Barrygores'.

"I've got both goals and the fight."
" We didn't have a fight."
"Well in that case I've got both goals."
Hahaha.

Colby Cohen now has 30 points in 128 AHL games. Wasn't he supposed to have a bit higher offensive upside?

Yes.

But that is kind of hard to do when you are scratched.
