Who is in your TOP 10?


  • Britts94

    After watching the Bruins goon the Wings, and Pens bow out with D shoulder injuries, and the Rangers take out Mtl, and Chi and LA hit in he East, I figure the bigger players will command a premium. Like Nick Ritchie(?), the 224lber if is still available. Like trading down to maybe have a shot at the USHD RWer later in the 1st rd and a 3rd round pick or something. Gonna post Pavelec’s SP over last three seasons vs the team avg, and compare against all other starting goalies playing at least 100 games and 10 per yr minimum. I expect Pavelec to be in the lowest 5%.
    I dunno why Jets want Stanstny. He had a Jokinen-like yr very recently where led his team in minus.
    I used to play Little League. When I got angry that I got nicked by a pitch I’d huck my bat at the pitcher. I was suspended, then banned. Kept doing it at every level of ball. Even pick up games in the park, I’d be hucking the bat at the pitcher and starting fights. Everyone hated me. I even had to do time and get counselling.
    But then yesterday, an elderly lady across ther street had her purse snatched. The jerk hurt her or shoulder in the process. She was in pain and yelling “purse-thief! Purse-thief!! Someone do something!”.
    I sprang into action. It was like the 88 flashback from ‘Necessary Roughness”, I found a 2×4 from a cement form at my foot, and hucked it across the strike. Direct hit! I was redeemed for all that sports muscle-memory practise. All the nay-sayers were wrong. …Just when she thought her day couldn’t get any worse.
