Friday Thoughts… And Winner of Best Pizza

Three nights of NHL hockey have created some extremely early observations. Let’s dig in. — Last night, in nine games, teams averaged 4.1 goals/game. Teams scored 74 goals and collectively they were 30.9% on the powerplay. Through 16 games teams have scored 33 goals on 124 opportunities for an average of 26.6% efficiency. Very few teams will be able to compete in the regular season without a very good powerplay. — It is the main reason why the Canadiens will miss the playoffs. Their PP wa

WWYDW(FE): Keep McDrai Together, Or Keep Them Apart

Over the offseason, a big point of conversation was how much the newly-signed Zach Hyman could produce playing alongside Connor McDavid. Hyman was a fan favourite in Toronto. He went from being a middling prospect to earning a depth role on the Maple Leafs to becoming a major contributor in the team’s top-six. Hyman’s role was being the straw that stirred the drink alongside Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, serving as the player who went to the dirty areas of the ice, won puck battles, an
