    The only player to put up more points than Jason Spezza is Sidney Crosby

    Mwahaha!
    Hahaha... very clever. Let's say the minimal value is zero.

    I think truely ridiculous forecasts should be given outlier values.

    "Crosby gets 250 points" should be worth 10 points at least!

    1: At least 5 of last year's top 10 point-getters will have a lower points/game this year.
    2: At least three of last year's 6 division winners will have a lower winning percentage.
    3: The top two seeds in each conference (Pitt, Montreal, Chicago, Anaheim) will all have a lower conference seed this time.
    4: The bottom two seeds in each conference (Tampa, Florida, Nashville, Colorado) will all have a higher conference seed this time.

    Jason Collins wasn't signed by a team when he came out too. So I guess no pro athletes from the big 4 have come out then.

    He played last year and is still trying to play. Avery has officially retired and hasn't played any hockey in more than a year. That makes him a former player, and Collins a current player.

    Former player, current player, retired, free agent. Same thing.
    The point of it all is that famous male athletes are standing up for gay rights /coming out themselves. This wasn't happening 10 years ago.

    I agree with the point of it all. But this was talking about when you said a player would come out, does Avery count since he is no longer a player.
