    You do realize how averages work, right?

    ....

    The Takeaway
    Utilizing different statistical measurements to pin down prime performance years was a valuable exercise, but it only served to reinforce what Desjardins and Tulsky found years ago. Generally, a forward is most dominant in his early to mid-20s. By the time said player has hit unrestricted free agency it's likely his best days are already behind him.

    Ignoring that is intellectually dishonest.
    If you are going to continue to allow people to post vile racist crap, and defend pedophilia on the site, then I'm done posting here.... if you really want to find me... you know where to look.

    The issue with hoping this team goes on a magical run is that they're not that good - and this group hasn't shown much over the last calendar year.

    They haven't been good since their 10-1-1 start last season.
    Won 3 of 4 on the road trip that could end them.

    Won 5 of last 7 overall.

    I'm rattled with gambling debt. I didn't factor in the positive impact of a Price injury.

    I appreciate your passive aggressive optimism...

    Unfortunately my bookie is aggressive aggressive and fails to see the bigger picture. I should have invested everything in Bitcoin rather than betting against the Habs

    I'm not angry at all. Why do you feel the need to respond to my posts with inanities?

    Its a hockey message board, responding to hockey posts, by talking about hockey is what happens, but you've been posting drivel for 24 hours.

    That's his shtick, saying someone is angry when they're simply pointing out banalities.

    I'm not the only one that was concerned. Habsy was as well - along with many others.

    I will feel better when we move up the standings. Until that point it's perfectly fine to be skeptical.
