To me a wild card is someone whose performance fluctuates wildly. In statistics parlance, whose variance is larger than their average (or mean). To me Kovalev is that kind of player, even if his average is higher than most players'.

my pick is Bonk, i feel he'll energize our 3rd line, produce in key moments and will be a key in shutting down carolinas 1'st line.

Edit: also, which Huet do we get? The one amongst the league-leaders in SV% and SO, despite playing half a season, or the one who came down to Earth these past few weeks?
Bump again...

Right now I think Ribeiro is one of our best players. He's playing more of a complete game and looks alot more stronger on the ice so right now I'd say it's him.

HUUUUUUUUET!!!!!!!!!!!! But really, I think our team are full of wildcards type player, like Plek, Perez, Zed, Bonk, Bouillon, Bulis, Begin.... all of them got some good offensive skills or grit, but they are underrated and not well known in NHL! If each of them can start contributing or at least once a while, man, that will be amazing...
