The law of diminishing returns is a fundamental principle of economics.

It states that in all productive processes, adding more of one factor of production, while holding all others constant ("ceteris paribus"), will at some point yield lower incremental per-unit returns.

We do have a lot of forwards, I guess..... :|

BB's head trauma is diminishing??
Your head trauma is diminishing??
Your anxiety over someone else's head trauma is diminishing??

C'mon man, can't you tell what is going on? Mick is an attention seeker.

The posts where he leaves you guessing. The memes, videos, and GIFs. The inference that he's banging a 19-year old. The hint about his birthday just around the corner.

Of course, when he gets his very own thread he balks. Doesn't revel in it like Skyo or Dud or Blob. That's too much.

Different strokes for different folks makes it interesting ... and very entertaining 8-)

Right said Fred
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I will go with 93 points. There is a substantial possibility I am mistaken.

I like your technique BerryMan, not setting yourself up for disappointment. I predict 100 pts

At the 1/4 poll the Canucks have 23 points. They had 22 points at the same point last season. But this team looks better than last years group. Not a world beater by any means but more competitive. I predicted 96 points and they are on pace for about 94.

The next seven games are going to be massive for the Canucks. All good opponents and six games on the road. I think they need to get a minimum of 7 points in those games to hang around the playoff race long term. The games are getting tougher now, not just the opponents. Time to put their big boy pants on.

Problem is, a lot of the 'heavier' players (Ferlund, Rousell, Beagle) have been replaced by soft guys like Baertschi and Ericksson..

I agree, we need to go 500 in these next 6 games as our bottom 6 gets healthy again..

And get BigMac up to play in erickssons spot... Loui needs some special time in Utica

The big difference in this year's team is that even with this recent streak of losing, they are still leading the league or at least second when it comes to shots for vs shots against metrics. They have regularly out-shot and out-chanced other teams by a wide margin.

In previous years, they weren't at all competitive once the injuries to vets hit.
Try to focus on THIS year...
