If any player, whether he was on team or NHL last season, can come to this team this season and have a breakout season offensively, who would it be???
My first thought goes to Colin Wilson, who may come in and tear it up. So Aside from him, if anybody who currently is set to be on Nashville's roster or has a fighting chance to be on it, who do you think it would be??
Maybe Legwand will breakout??? Erat???? Sully??? Jones??? Santorelli??? Spaling???
He could have done that a while ago if he wasn't behind the depth charts of Weber/Suter/Timonen/Zidlicky. Trotz uses Hamhuis primarily as a shutdown role because he's so good at it. He's got offensive skills, but the team just doesn't need it from him. We need his superior defense. Put him on a team with no offensive dmen and he would get 40-45 points easily. So in answer to your question, no I don't think he will while playing with us.

Does anyone ever see Legwand EVER having a 70 point plus season??
No, I don't. If he couldn't do it in 06/07 playing with Kariya (63 points), then he probably never will, especially given his injury history.
