Several things:
First of all, no one is down on him. But most of us view him realistically. One does not enter a season with Chad Wiseman penciled in on the 2nd line. If he were to win the job, that is one thing. But to simply hand it to him is insane. Second of all, he has shown ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to indicate that he is a 20 goal player. Scoring in the minors and the bigs is two different things. Most of us judged him by what we saw at the NHL level. And there was nothing to indicate that he is a top 6 forward.
