Krushelnyski's career high outside of that one year was 26. He topped 20 goals on time after he turned 25.
Your list was odd. None of the guys you mentioned went straight from the NCAA or CHL right into the SC playoffs. It was a useless list, at least in this thread. In fact, most of the guys played 20+ games at the NHL level before the playoffs. The reason why so many people are high on Kreider heading into this season was based off his inexperience and subsequent production in last seasons NHL playoffs
Kreider's situation was unique. He went straight from the NCAA to the thick of the NHL playoffs, bypassing the AHL altogether.
Instead of wasting your time cherrypicking random names of playoff rookies (many who were two-way forwards not scorers) with prior NHL/AHL experience, try finding the names of players who did what Kreider did. That is, straight from the NCAA to the NHL playoffs, and how they produced.
Both of Atkinson's PP points came in the last four games of the season. Y'know, when he was actually on the PP and not relegated to fourth-line duty.
Are you going to continue to tell me how Columbus used their forwards this past year? I sure could use the lesson, since apparently watching the games and keeping an eye on this type of stuff isn't enough.
4th liners play 15 and 16 minutes a game? Maybe in Columbus. Kinda odd considering Prospal wasnt a 4th liner yet he was his linemate for most of his first 15 or so NHL games.
