I’m not understanding anything. I’m comparing the two players at the same age.

understating, you said imagine Farabbee at TKs age or something like that, you are understating what TK is today.

LOL Someone actually wrote Giroux doesnt make his teammates better...... Raffl had 20 goals playing a season on his line. Raffl is a good soldier and I guy I want on the team but he isnt a 20 goal scorer.

Yup, Hartnell with 37 as well

What Konecny is today doesn’t matter, when you’re comparing Farabee to a 19 year old Konecny. I can’t compare a 22 year old Farabee to Konecny today because that kid isn’t here or hasn’t happened yet.

No it didn't. He was comparing Farabee to Konecny in his rookie season. As an all around player, Farabee is a better player now than when Konecny was a 19 year old rookie.

"If Farabee is this good right now, this is kid that actually might be a legitimate sniper/super star much sooner than later" and then you dogged TK about his cheating, I was saying pump the brakes on Farabee, small sample size and look where TK is today even with those flaws. You mentioned the future for Farabee

Ugh just reading his name makes me cringe. Watching him play hurt my eyes lol. Good shot but not much else.

Because every young player works to their strengths and what comes naturally to them when they enter the league. These habits aren’t naturally going to go away.

Yes, it will take time to see what Farabee’s weaknesses are but right now, Farabee’s game is ahead of what Konecny’s was.

No, you wanted me to consider what Konecny has done the past two seasons, which wouldn’t make sense to my point.

not even arguing that. I just mean the kid should do what he feels he wants to do.

You were inferring, look at Farabee now compared to Konecny as a rookie and then saying he will be a superstar sniper...Whether you like it or not that's how the message was received.

Whether you like it or not how you perceived it does not mean you perceived it correctly. It was obvious what he was attempting to say.

My predictions is Farabee will be a superstar and a sniper in the NHL. I guess we’re female doging about fans making predictions now.

Yes, Farabee currently has a better balanced game and attention to detail than Konecny did at the same age. That’s why Vigneualt has confidence in Farabee on the top line and on the first PP unit right now.

I hope he is.

I hope he keeps this up because the early returns have been good. thinking about having Scott and Patrick back, this team could be a real threat.

Love this!

It amazes me how deluded Giroux's haters tend to be. G will be a Flyers HOFer at a minimum. Barring some bizarre implosion in his twilight seasons, I personally agree he's deserving of Hockey HOF.

Has MTL won the Subban Weber trade thus far? I'd lean towards yes.

I mean Nashville doesn't have Weber's contract or Subban to deal with so it might be a push.

The only thing I’ve heard about Giroux from a group of local fans is that he snubs fans for autographs, that’s it. I’ve seen him snub a kid out of giving him a puck in warm ups once but I’ve also see him toss out many to over the glass.

With this said, Claude Giroux is this generation’s undervalued superstar. He does it all and he does it all as well as anyone. What he has to do to get consideration for the Hart trophy when he’s clearly deserving, I don’t know. Or to make an olympic team, I don’t know.

Carter looked real solid last night, I might flip that so you're still playing the hot hand but resting him for the start against Washington.
