Would it be nice if he chipped in more? Sure--and that's why a guy like Ott might be a better choice in that role. But Tropp is contributing--it's not his goal total going up, but Vanek and Hodgson.
Agreed entirely. And it's not unrealistic to think his totals will go up as his offensive game grows acclimated to the NHL.
