Shhh. Keep that on the down low.

We don't need to give the stats crowd another thing to deem "unsustainable".

I think with the man advantage, it will be RNH inflating their totals.

PP Points Per 60 Minutes
Crosby: 7.719(only 22 games)
Giroux: 7.575
RNH: 7.419
Couture: 7.222
Hall: 6.747
Malkin: 6.239
Elias: 6.181
Pominville: 6.070
Eberle: 5.911
Tavares: 5.769
Selanne: 5.734
Neal: 5.733
Kopitar: 5.601
H. Sedin: 5.400
Stamkos: 4.815
Ovechkin: 4.868
Kovalchuk: 4.591
Seguin: 4.522
B. Richards: 4.223

Sure, a year makes a difference in Hall and Eberle's production but they were no where near that good in their rookie seasons. I think RNH was the big difference.

I didn't follow the selection camp that closely, so legite question. With how pitiful our defense is, why didn't we bring Pulock?

That was just horrendous. New PK method. Everyone go into the same corner at once, and don't come away with the puck

No one will want to take a penalty against the Oilers.

Who's spot does he take?

You take Dumba before you take Pulock imo.

Maybe I'm just higher on Pulock than most. If you're taking guys like Murphy and Rielly, you need guys like Pulock who play a calmer game, and can read the play well. Our defense is just all over the place

Yak and Nuge should take the gloves off and fight on centre ice.

Murray would have been nice for that.

Pulock is no pillar of defense. I like his game a lot, but realistically, if you take him then Murphy stays home and we all know that was never going to happen.

He is compared to the guys we have though imo. His defense is seriously underrated
