So, ye ole Putin-lover gets 6 points in 3 games and Petey gets 7 points in 2 games - and Ovie is the 1st star?



Gordie Howe or not, NHL has ALWAYS had an Eastern bias and likely always will.

Petey becoming a force again. Last year he had to deal with a lot of critics around the league saying he was over-rated and not living up to the media hype about him after a good rookie season but now he's one of the best and most dominant players in the league.


He absolutely single handedly took over that Kraken game in a way I don't think we have ever seen since perhaps Bure. I know Kesler took on the Preds in the playoffs in 2011 almost by himself, but he never dropped 5 points the way Petey did, ties the game late and scores a shootout winner.


That was a warning message to the rest of the league. Then the next game he shuts down McDavid and Draisaitl defensively.


Taken him a few years but finally Petey has arrived and should be considered amongst the league's top players.
