I think he has a lot of talent. Due to his behavior I don't like him. I always say he should leave the shenanigans to a player with less skill then he has.

The latest was the player that pulls the opponents stick up, striking himself in the mouth in a effort to get a 4 min. penalty. How's that, although caught while in review.
Very true Marchand does have talent, apparently he can’t let go of other crap. It just is if he going do those shenanigans don’t turtle.

Game 39 will be remembered as a deal breaker, well jaw break anyway.

Sad, although you watch a guy in WHL they let you float into the opponent's zone. In the big league, NHL one must keep his head up!

Can't imagine if one played defense the way I used to today in WHL. There would be some upsets!

Will the canuckle -heads be up tonight against Boston?

I don't believe they have had much success against good teams this year which leads me to believe they may well get punted in the first round.

Did they? Did rookie cards sell. Unopened boxes sold, but there is value in that as well.

This is absolutely the schoedingers cat scenario. They aren't there and are there until observed. Maybe he kept the boxes that didn't have one? Who knows. Crazy though.

There is ZERO room for debate. Connor McDavid is the 3rd greatest hockey player in NHL history...

Who's your number two? There's no way I'm ranking McDavid ahead of Orr and Lemieux just yet.

Mike Bossy. See list above.

BTW, I'm assuming a player's goodness is based on the number of 90 point seasons in a row. Ya ya, I know, not a very good way to measure things. So Ill take the L.

For myself part of the goodness has to be leading the team to the promise land of Lord Stanley’s Cup.

And that would be Henri Richard, who played for the Habs, with 11 Stanley Cup wins.
Second would be Jean Beliveau and Yvon Cournoyer, who played for the Habs, with 10 Stanley Cup wins.
Third would be Claude Provost, who played for the Habs, with 9 Stanley Cup wins.
Fourth would be Maurice Richard, who played for the Habs, with 8 Stanley Cup wins.

See a pattern here?

^ they didn't play for the Leafs?

P.S. greatest goalies in NHL history:

Charlie Hodge 6 cups with Montreal
Jacques Plante with 6 cups with Montreal
Dryden also with 6 cups with Montreal

I don't think most cups is a good metric either. Mike Vernon has 2 and he couldn't stop a beachball.
