Wondering aloud about the pre-season, shootouts and Alexander Steen
The actual NHL season is still pretty far away (October eighth) but hey at least we’ll soon have pre-season games! That might be the ultimate sign of a desperate poolie, the day you ask your buddies to do a preseason draft.
More often than not the silly season ignored by fans. I tend to take a different approach. Sure, you can’t really get a gauge on individual skillsets. Because certain players are working on different aspects of their game, you can’t judge the box score results the way you normally would. For instance, maybe Iginla is working his way back from a wrist injury and is intentionally passing more than usual. It will pull down his shot and goal totals artificially.
