A breakout prediction

I have this feeling that Mike Komisarek will break out in this years playoffs. Further more, I believe that Alexei Kovalev will step it up too. Who do you guys think might break out?

Zednik broke out 2 years ago before Mclaren took him out. 8 points in 4 games, he was ahead of Forsberg. Now I expect him to do it for an entire series. He played such a great game against the Leafs, he looked like a superstar.

I think Julien will prefer Quintal over Komisarek?

Kovalev is not very intense these days but he's a gamebreaker, the only one we have up front.

Yeah he was benching Quintal ''To give a break to him before de playoffs''

I don't think Komisarek will have much ice time in playoffs , but if he play like he did lately he could be a more important part of the team when playoffs starts .

Zednik will be our 1st goal scorer in the playoff.He's a clutch player and love to play with Saku.

Time will tell who will win the battle betwen Quintal & Komisarek.At equal performance, CJ will use Quintal more but if Komi overplay Q with ease, he will play more.

Kovalev will eventually wake up. Maybe tonight in MTL against NJ!!! He will be a key player in the playoffs as well.

I bet Dagenais will be scratch 3/4 of the time before the playoff and will not play in the playoffs except if there's injuries or if we are losing 3-0 or 2-0 in a serie. I think that like us, CJ hate the way he played last night.

I think that Dowd is not confortable in the offensive zone. He is not very creative but of course he excel in defensive missions. I think we should use him on the fourth line instead of the third. And continue to be the PK specialist that he is and giving him 11-12 min of ice-time instead of 13-14.

I think Komi has the potential to break out, but he won't get the chance unless someone gets hurt IMO. CJ seems pretty set on keeping Quintal and Bouillon in the lineup.

Langdon hasn't scored in 3 years. Mind you, he's still a long way away from the NHL record of 17 years without a goal (Randy Cunneyworth scored in 1981... and 1998)

Not sure where this record came from. Cunneyworth was definitely no sniper, but he got a few every year.

Arrggghhh, my bad. That's the longest scoring drought for a player on theSAME TEAM. I went over it too quickly. Cunneyworth travelled a lot.

So I wonder what is the longest scoring drought ever for a player? Langdon must be chasing it.

i assume this is what you were referring to?

The longest gap between goals by a player for the same team is an almost unbelievable 17 years. In 1981-82, Randy Cunneyworth played 20 games with Buffalo, scoring two goals (the last on Nov. 15, 1981). Then they sent him to Rochester of the AHL. He spent the next three and a half seasons there. In 1985 the Penguins brought him back to the NHL, where he played 13 productive years with Pittsburgh, Winnipeg, Hartford, Chicago and Ottawa. Buffalo signed him as a free agent in the summer of 1998. In 1998-99, Cunneyworth played 14 games for Buffalo, scoring two goals (closing the 17-year gap on Feb. 11, 1999). Then they sent him to Rochester of the AHL! I guess he can take a hint—he's been there since. He became Rochester's head coach in 2000-01, a job he still holds.

Yes. Indeed.

Right now, Daneyko holds the record

"Daneyko, who turned 39 in April, is still plodding along after 20 seasons on the New Jersey blue line. His 255-game scoring drought (snapped last October) remains an NHL record. In January, the defenseman had his first two-point game since the Taft Administration"

Langdon is around 115 games without a goal (2001-2002 season).
