    Boston with 14 loser points is pretty absurd. They might set the record for most OT games in a season.

    Is this dude actually expected to be good, or is he just in the league to fight until he can’t anymore?

    Seems to be a guy who is here to fight and become a fan favorite for a few months before going back to the AHL. Either way, it's absolutely ridiculous that this guy is setting up fights for his first shift every game. This is exactly what we are trying to avoid with legislating out staged fights.

    He had 12 points in 43 AHL games and wasn't much of a scorer in junior, either. (Also fought pretty much non-stop in the AHL)

    Of course it's possible that he develops into a 4th line grinder or something, but right now he's there to pretty much do what he's doing.

    His uniqueness is how bad he is at fighting

    The way he fights makes it worse for me, too. Most guys are more concerned with protecting themselves in a fight than landing big shots, which is why most NHL fights are super grapple-y. He doesn't defend himself at all and just throws haymakers non-stop. With the frequency and his style combined he's gonna have CTE at 23.

    I'm still a ways away from going this far. Hockey is the only sport that "allows" you to settle it on the ice. However, the staged fights need to go. And that's what Rempe is doing. He's not sticking up for teammates, he's fighting to fight.

    you don’t need to stick up for teammates. This is what happened in the nba in the 70s and 80s. They got all that shit out of the game

    Feels like a light return considering they traded Tanev a week before the TDL.

    Tanev is really good.

    That return compared to what Monahan got I guess just shows how terrible the C market is this year.
