No kidding its like everyone expected him to waltz in here and score 40 goals. He is a 23 year old rookie what did everyone expect exactly? His game really picked up before his injury, he was causing turnovers and going to the net. By comparison Hossa scored 15 goals and had 15 assists in his first season. For most rookie players it takes a little while. This incredible rookie class is like no other.
Bochenski had 6 goals and 7 assists in 20 games and people hate on him like he is a nothing player. Give him a couple seasons and he is atleast a reliable 20 goal guy. He wasnt the hardest worker but he works harder then Arnason. Who by comparison has 4 assists in 19 games.
I am just sick and tired of people ripping on Bochenski he is a solid player. Not every rookie we have is going to be Martin Havlat, Patrick Eaves or Andrej Meszaros.
