Earlier in the season, I wasnt too impressed. He was consistently pushed around along the boards and never seemed able to get a quality shot off. In the last 10 games or so, that has changed dramatically and he has begun to score. 10 points in the last 6 games. If he adds a few lbs of muscle, he could be a force in this league. Looking forward to he and Yakupov at least doubling Nash's production in a couple years.
I didn't say that - that's a specificity I'm not smart enough to make - but I did say that you get the feeling that once he scores it's going to come in bunches. Hopefully he can carry it over - you kow, score 2-3 goals in eveyr game?

Going to the net he had to learn - he was being easily pushed out or making the decision to go wide too often. That I think is a big reason for his improved scoring later in the season.

All that said, wow there's a lot of jumping the gun in here - every bit as much as was going on by those reminding evryone about Calvert & Filatov's hattys.
