[Sticky???]]Thats right I said it. 3 point game last night playing on a 3rd line with Marty Reasoner and Evander Kane. Great 2 way game, adept penalty killer, tenacious player by the net and in his own zone, makes players around him better, has excellent hockey IQ.
Will be an allstar in the coming years and will score over 70 points this season

I am sorry, but please don't compare Peverly to Richards...not even close. Nobody brings what Mike Richards brings to the ice, Mike Richards is Mike Richards. Maybe Peverly will be a poor poor poor man's Richards in 7 years, but he is no Mike Richards.
Buddy played in the ECHL and ECAC for half of his career, don't compare him to a player with the Juniors, International, and NHL accomplishments that Mike Richards has. Plus he is older than Mike, so...

Indeed. Compiling points in October - and last season on a bottom-feeder (sorry Thrashers fans, I'm an NYI fan - I known bottom feeders) is comprable to delivering clutch performances on a Cup winner...and for subsequent seasons.
If one wishes to make a bold prediction, go right ahead. Citing last night's game as any evidence is...nevermind.
I don't mean to rain on your parade here, but last year Aaron Voros was one of the leagues leading scorers after the first handful of games. He and Dubinsky were absolutely ripping it up in the first month...it went downhill from there.
Lesson: You can't really jump to these conclusions early on in October. If Peverley is still putting up this kind of production at the end of November, then it's time to start making comparisons.
I told ya so. I was right all along. This Canucks team is incredibly overrated and I called it.
