Mike Brophy from Sportsnet.ca puts the Wild at 16, holding strong in the middle of the pack. Just like last week. His commentary?
Martin Havlat has picked up his scoring pace and is riding a five-game point streak with two goals and eight points.
Interesting. Martin Havlat having success is reason to be at 16. Got it. Wait a minute… this sounds awfully familiar. Didn’t Brophy comment on Havlat last week?
Martin Havlat’s three assists in a 4-1 win over the Lightning gives him 22 points in 18 games against Tampa Bay.
Indeed. So Havlat’s success in week 7 equals a six point drop, but Havlat’s success in week 8 in simply reason to stay flat. This makes all kinds of sense.
