1. To read that beaver anal glands are used to make food flavorings--labeled under 'natural' flavorings.
2. That there would be a true stealth fighter you couldn't see. But the F-35 has proven me wrong since everyone who has ordered one hasn't seen a single unit.... they are THAT stealthy.
3. There would be fewer quality Hockey fights on the ice than off. But again, the fight between the owners and players was humdinger. Neither side would go down, it seemed like they just kept wailing on each other. OTOH, I did stipulate quality fights, right? This wasn't so much a quality fight as a sloppy slog with a couple fat bozos.
4. And this is the BIG one: David Clarkson would be 3rd in the NHL in scoring. Now how the hell did this happen?
Well, that's what this thread is really about. I haven't been able to watch many games over the past year what with pregnant/sick wife, house renovation, and two newborn Devils fans needing caring for, but everything I read seemed to indicate last year was a fluke for D.C.? But if that is the case then what is this? He is on pace for something like 36 goals in this strike shortened season! In a full season that would be sweet, in a short season that is monstrous. So for those who've watched more closely, what do we have here? Is he a budding goal scorer? Is this season two of a fluke? Or is he benefitting from some good pairings? Or is it a combination?
For my part, from what little I've seen I'm having a tough time with the fluke argument. Flukes don't usual last beyond a postseason in any sport, IMO. And look at Salvandor's sudden burst of scoring in last years playoffs. He isn't normally much of a scorer a d hasn't put up much this year. Typical fluke. A good fluke, but typical. But it sounds like Clarkson has been a factor throughout the season so far, no? That just doesn't sound flukish.... but maybe I just to believe that. So educate me my friends....
