He's always showed he can compete at a high level, but he was still a boy growing into the player we see today, the 24 yr old LK that if we had this famous Sather patience with he'd be a leader for this team now with all the other top youngsters.
Last year down the stretch Tippett played Korpikoski against the Wests toughest opponents, why? Cause he is mediocre and a non difference maker?
This year he was a leader and key contributor to one of the leagues top teams. And some of you tell me its a byproduct of his minutes!!??
24 yrs old and one of the tougher players to play against in the West, but who cares, numbers are needed, not winners.
You might be right. I didn't really see him play too much, only about ten or twelve games in total. I actually think he might have been a bit like Peeley on the Devils is now back when he was on the rangers. Defense, board work but not to good offensively. This season though, he has been excellent and really took a step forward.
