Powe is such a good D-man

Quote:
Flyers’ defense packs Powe-erful punch
Aside from a pair of goals earlier this month, Mike Richards hasn’t lit the lamp since Oct. 10 against Anaheim. So where’s all the Flyers’ offense coming from?

In what is becoming a growing trend around the NHL, teams are getting a significant portion of their scoring from the blueliners — the guys who aren’t paid to dent the twine.

The Flyers are third in the NHL in scoring behind only Washington and Atlanta. Ten of their 62 goals have come from the likes of Chris Pronger, Braydon Coburn and Matt Carle.

Perhaps the biggest surprise has been from Darroll Powe. The second-year defenseman out of Princeton has three goals in his last five games and has already equaled his output from last season.

“I’m a little more comfortable [playing] in the [NHL] and a little more confident,” said Powe, who netted his sixth goal Monday against the Devils.
“My linemates are doing a great job and I’m finding some open space and they’re feeding me. Sometimes the puck just finds the back of the net and right now I think that’s kind of happening.”

"Second-year defenseman"?
At least they got his college right.

And meanwhile, we all thought Pronger was the complete package. ********.

Powe will be the first 50 goal scorer to finish the season with 50 goals 50 points

and no assists, if he could pull that off, I'm sure I'd do something awesome to commemorate that

I'm sorry. I love and Powe and all, but if he scores more than 20 goals this year, my head goes immediately to what people might be stupid enough to trade for him. If someone thinks he can be a consistent offensive asset, and they're willing to give up a sizable bit, I'd take it.

Let's remember that I'm one of his biggest supporters. Either way he should not hit 20.

Though he does have more goals than any of our other defensemen.

If powe finished with 30 goals and 0 assists i would love it lol. Infact i bet he goes all season without an assist. Then in the last game of the season gets one to spoil things

Pretty sure I read something on ESPN saying the Bruins were glad to get Defenseman Milan Lucic back.

I don't think he knows how. He hits and scores, and falls down

Powe hasn't passed anything since his last class at Princeton. He's a defenseman ... I see now.

This article is spot on. I bet Powe wins the Norris and starts at D for the All-Star Team and maybe even Team Canada.



What a big jerk this guy must feel like. I wonder if Powe read it?
