A hilarious lark. Ironically it drifted off into food in the rural BC town of a denizen of the list.

I'm not sure if Pettersson is overrated around the league, maybe a bit. Hasn't been the same player this year and that's a bit alarming to me.
Might be due to bad coaching. The standing in one spot waiting for the perfect pass on the PP for the one-time is just plain silly and predictable.
It's creativity and a deceptive shot that are is bread and butter.
Having a long successful career, one for the record books, will depend on a very good attendance record. Of late, he has been taking too much grief
from opposition teams that have guys designated to make his life miserable.

Sounds like something Doc or Chef said while they were guzzling Jimmy's load to cover up the fact that they wanted Vilardi over Pettersson.

Pettersson and Hughes is enough generational for us.

Pettersson and Hughes are Generational

Again, our first round picks of 2017 - Petterson and 2018 - Hughes are Generational in the NHL.

When you draft Generational talent like Pettersson and Hughes

Petey is generational.

The Chef has been stealth throat pumping Doyle for years now about Petey being generational and he never even felt a thing

I think we should clear up a few definitions.

To me, and I could be wrong, ‘generational’ is used for a person who changed the way the sport is played, or the greatest player of that era
Great changed the game.
Howe changed the game
Mario, Sid and McJesus are arguable the best of their generations.


‘Franchise player’ (implies elite status) are the people that the best at that role or position on a specific team. Top 6 forwards, they gotta be PPG. Defenceman must be Norris considerate, and goalies veznia.. not sure if there has ever been a bottom 6 franchise guy.

Now, Demko, Petey and Hughes are all franchise guys, but they are not generational yet.

Throat pumping me? Yeah....no. More like fisting himself and launching his diapers everywhere. If he wants to make a fool of himself he can have at it. The compulsive lying gets to be a bit much but if he thinks Pettersson is equal to Crosby there isn’t much I can do to help him. :eh:

I would guess somewhere around 90% of his posts are directed at you to illicit a response. You probably respond to 99.5% of his baitings therefor...the stealth throat pumpings shall be acknowledged

Boss... him and I have been playing this game since what, the turn of the century? If I didn’t respond to him this place would be dead. Actually maybe he never really went full troll until Dan Hamhuis signed and then he constantly called him out while the team was tearing the league a new one... Hamhuis BTW was a fantastic free agent signing. The Chef hated 2008-11.

BTW most of my responses although tongue in cheek are usually on the mark. I just don’t tend to be as bipolar as the Chef.

So the Sedins were not franchise players.

I always laughed when people called them point per game players. Daniel managed ppg 4 seasons of his 17 season NHL career, Hank manged it 3 seasons of 17 seasons.
