NHL Roundtable: The next John Scott; Kane trade rated; Calder race
That said, one palatable way to do it would be to create a player vote, for which the players select a guy based on likability, not ability. Goons, grinders, and old guys tend to top player polls for funniest/nicest opponent, anyway. Maybe Paul Bissonnette could get the call.
SP: Given the circumstances involved, I liked the trade for both teams and still do. Tyler Myers, because he skates so well, has a much higher ceiling than Zach Bogosian. And his improvement since he left Buffalo has validated that. The Jets will need all the giant, right-handed puck-moving defensemen they can get when Dustin Byfuglien bolts.
If McDavid hits 65 points this season, that would make his season scoring rate 1.48 PPG. That would be third-best ever for a rookie, ahead of Peter Stastny but behind Teemu Selanne and some other guy who was on the Oilers once upon a time. To make a long story short: It’s possible!
