The Trends Continue

Here are a list of things that I would have bet would be true by this point of the NHL season:Ovechkin has the most goals and shots in the League

The Rangers are off to a hot start….again. They went 10-3 last October.

Vaclav Prospal continues his up/down total points trend…It’s actually insane:

Season Games Points
2002-03 80 79
2003-04 82 54
2005-06 81 80
2006-07 82 55
2007-08 80 71
2008-09 82 45
2009-10 12 16

Simon Gagne, Marian Gaborik, Sami Salo and Kari Lehtonen are all hurt.

There has been ‘head shot’ talk

Pierre McGuire has gotten excited

The Monster has replaced Vesa Toskala in the net (it would have happened even if he was healthy)

There has been early goaltender controversy in Washington, Chicago and Detroit

Miikka Kiprusoff has a GAA over 3.00

Ottawa and Atlanta have continued their success from the end of last season

Carolina hasn’t….

Detroit looks like a Stanley Cup threat….Toronto doesn’t..
