He'll be 24 next game he plays and has played almost 350 NHL games including playoffs, not such a ridiculous statement. Forwards peak a lot earlier than most fans seem to think IMO.
Simmonds is a very good player, pretty good contract.
I understand forwards usually peak around 24-27, but that still doesn't make any sense lol. The person explained what they meant though. Entering the age of 24 he still has many aspects of his game he can improve on, and Homer believes he will.
Giroux, Schenn, Couturier, Voracek, and Simmonds are a nice core to build around.
Agreed. Great forward core. With guys like Hartnell/Briere/Read around it is definitely built to compete for a cup. Just need a core piece of D to build around as well... but I think Flyer fans have heard enough of that
Good for him. I went to school with this guy. No way he would remember me but we were in like grade 10 English together and another class! He was always the one to start food fights and now he signed a long term big money NHL deal... Eh now that I think of it the banana wasn't racism IT WAS REVENGE.
Come back to Toronto and play for the only team that matters!
I am not sure. There were lots of teachers I didn't know there. Jimenez was there haha.
Anyways this is a little off topic the overlords err I mean mods are going to be upset.
I wonder if Simmonds comes back down to Scarborough during the summer. One of my buddies saw him at the store last summer.
My buddy "Are you Wayne Simmonds"
my buddy "cool man"
You would have known Mr. Adams, he was a fabulous teacher. Simmonds was at Scarborough Arena with the Stewart brothers and Doughty on Canada Day. They had a fundraiser but I can't remember what it was for, so he definitely comes back here.
