Hitchcock's reputation is not unfounded. He's a heck of a coach but when I want to try and find players who will produce POINTS, I don't go looking at Hitchcock run teams first. I could easily see the Blues winning the West so there is no argument there.
But this is a fantasy hockey forum with a fantasy hockey question being asked. So while Tarasenko might win a Stanley CUp this year that does nothing to win a hockey pool if he ends up getting his ice time hacked when he only blocks 9 shots instead of 10 one game.
Fantastic start for Tarasenko. All 2 games of it. Will he keep it up? Maybe, I mean he has the history of looking great. However, maybe we should all wait more than 2 games before looking to Tarasenko here to continue ripping up the scoring charts with Hitchcock slowly clapping while he does so.
Fair enough. I retract my "dumb" comment. I thought you were pulling the superstar quotes out of thin air. The first time I read your original post it came off as jealousy towards some saying Senko over Yakupov. The post above clear that up. I agree with the Hitchcock run teams not producing many top players in terms of points but I think the benching as punishment references might be a bit exaggerated.
