Oh can he chew up 3rd line minutes, so can our third line. lol
Everybody has flaws, winning teams aren't always free of a single perimeter player. If their ability to put up points outweighs their lack of being a strong defensive player, it's not relaly a worry, hes somebody that is capable of being a point per game player on the right line and team. I think on a stacked canuck team with good defensive linemates, he could be a + player no problem while still putting up a point a game.
Wolski has played for a young colorado team, phoenix and florida. On a good new york team, he was a +12. and when he was with the avs and i watched him, he was definitely the reason for more goals than against
Anyway, hes a risk, i know that, thats why i dont really care that he went to another team
but to say raymond is a much better option and wolski is useless without any doubt is absurd
We're talking about him as a spare part, not a big part of the team. With major upside where he could potentially play a big part. hardly a risk. raymond sat in the press box alot of games last year, im sorry but give me a break
You know what, im going to make the prediction that Wolski puts up .75 pts a game or so and ends up earning a nice contract worth as much as raymond , while raymond shows why he got a paycut which you dont see often. lol
People said the same thing about Grabner, can't play d, blah balh, not defensive or well rounded enough to be on our team, you know what, we could have used his goal scoring a ton of times while ballard was doing **** all for this team. Sometimes its good to have talented players instead of minute eaters as spare parts. especially on smaller contracts
Only problem with this is that Wolski doesn't actually produce anything. Has had one decent outlier season in his career. Generally has been out-produced by Raymond in similar minutes.
Wolski is crap. Again, there's a reason he's bouncing around the league and getting a contract like this.
He's a liability defensively who can't play anywhere other than a 2nd line wing position, and has underproduced for that role in 4 of the last 5 seasons, while being crap in his own end. In other words, a total liability for his team.
Raymond is a superior player by so much it isn't even funny.
