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.
Bingo! couldint of said it better myself. Points isnt everything and a guy like that would be real nice right now. Those finish players play a very tough and grindy role and now he even adds good scoring ability, well hes showing why he was picked so high. Unfortunately on another team because we gave up on his so early for no apparent reason other than he wanted out. Please dont give me the we have Cally or Dubi that play the same role because u can never have enough guys like that esp when one gets hurt i.e Cally. These are just the subtle trades that Sather does and gets no **** for it. Goes down as another terrible trade in my book.
