$1 says TK is traded for a prospect who can make an impact either this year or next. Lets just hope he's not similar to Tangradi.

Either that or TK will be traded at the deadline because we really don't need a 3rd line winger who only scores when he shoots on net...which is like 2.3% of the time.

Never saw a shot he didn't like.

Im predicting that we make a big splash in free agency. Our third line will look like this next season:
J. Christ - C. Norris - M. Gandhi

5.6% actually. 17th on the team last year, 8th if you only include players that got 82 shots or more. No real reason to make up that stat when it was easily to find.
Paul Martin scored on just 2.2% of his shots. I lol'd.

Paul Martin is also a defenseman... not sure what else you'd expect considering most of his shots are for tips in front.

honestly, I know his real shooting % wasn't 2.3%.. but when you watch the games and how often he shoots, which is everytime he has the puck on his stick, he rarely hits the net. Headshot, hope you feel better bc you showed up with the actual %. Congrats guy.

Next time, i will say "3.33, repeating, of course,"

Assuming "impact" would mean play a bigger role than Kennedy, I'll take that bet.

I'm hoping you're right. He's slow on the ice and seems incapable of fitting in to the NHL game despite the Baby Pens playing the same system. Maybe he's better off being a career AHLer. The pace is a little slower and the AHL seems to be the only place he's had any kind of success in his game.
