Colorado Rockies 1976 Posted December 5, 2022 Share Posted December 5, 2022 My perception of Patrik hasn't really changed...very good player and borderline HHoFamer...I'd like to see him get in. At one point it absolutely looked like he was headed for superstar status...from 12/14/1999 through the end of the 2001 season, he played in 136 regular seasons games and scored 76 goals and added 86 assists...at the time I thought he was going to finish with at least one or two 100+ point seasons, he was that good. I've been over it several times but to summarize, I don't think Lou always did right by him...I think there was a bit of "Patrik can make it work with anyone we put him with."...at times he was stuck trying to make guys like Zubrus happen. I guess one way of putting it is that Patrik probably had superstar talent but due to a lot of factors didn't quite have a superstar career. But that's not to knock him...there's no shame in being very good and it's not like there's tons of NHLers who've finished with 1000 points or more. And on another note, Corey Perry a HHoFamer? Give me a break. You put him in and a lot of guys who've been snubbed previously should become instant hall-of-famers AFAIC...Roenick, Brind'Amour, Pierre Turgeon, etc. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
