lol okay....

 

how many goals you think Schneider is going to score this year? and do you think he's going to be on the first or 2nd PP unit? 

I have him slotted in for both powerplay units.

 

I think JM's point is that we're we're practically out of the running for #1 overall simply because we have a reasonable defense and one of the top goaltenders.

Thanks for everything. I can't think of a single person that had such a positive influence on a sports team for such a long period of time without ever playing a game.

What is the track record for top ranked goalies by central scouting?

Lindros was a dominant on both ends of the rink and piled up huge +/- numbers in addition to everything else.  Pavel Bure was an exceptional goal scorer but his commitment to defense was less than total.  I know who I'd take if I were starting a team.  I believe the HOF holds a grudge against Eric but I'm not sure for what.

 

Also Bure scored 60 goals twice, not 4 times. 

 

lets not get into semantics, I had to go look up the numbers but Bure was over 60 twice, was once at at 58 and once at 59. so for all intents and purposes pretty much a 60 goal scorer four times. He was among the best goalscorers in hockey for about 10 years and was by far more skilled than Lindros, and its not even close. He put up over 40 goals twice on Florida and won the Richard with linemates I don't even know who, Viktor Kozlov? I remember that one season he had 100 points and his next closest teammate had like 35.

 

For once the HHOF was right. Perhaps his commitment to defense was lesser, but by the same token if I'm starting a team I'm easily drafting Bure before grabbing Lindros. It's like saying you'd rather have Parise than Stamkos. Both elite players, but one borders on generational while the other is a great player.
