In 2 of the 3 games i've gone to this year Zibanejad has been Ottawa's most dangerous forward. Give him time.
People would have a much different opinion of him if he was playing major junior. And yes he would score a lot of goals in junior - his shot is probably above average in the NHL.
I don't recall him ever being ottawas most dangerous forward but I guess that's my opinion.
And I don't think his shot is above average. Yes he's got a rocket one timer but until he can start parlaying that into goals its essentially useless. Alfies one timer, although not nearly as hard as zibbys, is above average because he can pick his spots with it and bury. And yes, I'm aware he scored a beauty one timer in pre season last year but as the saying goes, even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut. But hey, who knows, maybe I'm completely wrong here. Let's hope.
