Separated at birth?

Michael Peca, C, Edmonton Oilers, b. 1974
2005 stats:
7GP, 1G, 2A, 3pts, 10PIM, 16SOG, 62.7%FO

Stephane Yelle, C, Calgary Flames, b. 1974
2005 stats:
7GP, 1G, 2A, 3pts, 4PIM, 12SOG, 60.3%FO

Not much to choose from, there. Tiebreaker:
And of course, there's $2.92: that's how much Peca "earns" for every dollar the Flames pay Yelle.

Also, I think I owe Todd White an apology for this bad analogy: Todd is 2-7-9, +7 this season, with a respectable 52.9 FO%.


Matt, you're always full of mischief, getting stuck in the Oilers fan's craw... but I can't get baited into this argument. No way.

Is he over valued? Yeah. Is he over paid? Definitely. But it's a one-time expense, an Oilers splurge, if you will. Kind of like that time I came home drunk and online ordered a subscription to The Hockey News.

Then again, we traded for him. ARRGH!

Oh man, are you kidding me with this lame comparison.

Hey, how about this one:

Iginla (+1):
7GP, 2G, 2A, 4pts, 0PIM 19SOG 47.2%FO

Horcoff (+4):
5GP, 3G, 3A, 6pts, 4PIM, 11SOG 52.4%FO

But hey, I guess Iginla is only 6 million dollars more expensive. That isn't so bad.

Speaking of which. At what point do Calgary fans stop giving Jarome a pass by recalling his history of "slow starts"?

And oh yeah, what Sacamano said.

is it just me or did Peca lose his edge after the big injury? I thought this was common knowledge.

After the Olympic Gold medal and spring '04, Jarome's this fan will give Jrome a 'slow start pass' until next November
