2012-13 point total prediction: Nik Antropov

GP: 67
G: 9
Pts: 27

With the arrival of Jokinen, I don't see Antro getting the same type of minutes as he did last year. PP time will likely be reduced, and he'll probably be deployed vs. the opposition top lines more frequently.

Voted 25-29. I expect he ends up with around 27pts - reduced TOI, and more difficult defensive matchups as part of the 3rd line will factor in. On the plus side, if that line ends up being stable (say Poni, Antro and Welly), they've shown chemistry in the past with the Leafs. I see this as being a very good line that should do well in a shut down role, and still be dangerous around the net.

I don't think Antro will beat Wellwood to start in the top6 or Burmistrov to end in the top6, so he will most likely be a 3rd liner for majority - if not all - of the season. His average TOI equals to the GST line last year so that most likely won't change. The loss of Kane/Ladd being on his wing and increase in defensive minutes will most likely hurt his production... but my guess is not much because I think Nik may improve slightly this year in effort/effectiveness.

Most common line-mates (in order):

Most common D on ice with (in order):
Stuart (285:56), Bogosian (252:10), Oduya (237:04), Hainsey (206:17)



Interesting Facts of the Day
Go back and look at Wellwood's advance stats I posted, then come here and look at Antropov... similar?

Name GP TOI Shots SH% 5V5 G/60 5V5 A1/60 5V5 A2/60
Antropov 69 12.42 95 15.8 0.77 0.70 0.28
Wellwood 77 12.69 93 19.4 0.74 0.68 0.74

For 5v5 */60 in the NHL for RWers:
Antropov was 42nd in G/60 and 29th in A1/60
Wellwood was 43rd in G/60 and 30th in A1/60

What differed them last year was TOI, secondary assists (which depend mostly on luck for forwards) and games played (and Antropov's sh% was near to his career average, unlike Wellwood)

(EDIT) Yet fans opinions on the two differ by quite a large margin... shows you what pts/$ and subjective perception can do to you.

only thing that really works in his favour is that it's a contract year for him, hoping we move him at the deadline if we're outside the playoff bubble.

I expect 30-35 pts, I think he could fetch a similar return to Oduya as 6'6" Centers don't grow on trees.

He has to stay healthy though.

The trade deadline will be interesting to watch.

Hainsey, Wellwood, Poni and Antro will all be pending UFAs... but I'm not sure the Jets can move any of em if they are in the playoff hunt.

To be fair, teams may be looking to bulk up in size right before the playoffs, considering how dominant teams like Boston and LA were physically when they won the Cup. So a 6'6 center on a contract year may be a decent acquisition, as long as he can put up some points next year and make himself look less than useless.

I'm hoping he plays at least 70-75 games, in which I'd hope for 15 goals, 15-20 assists, 30-35 points.


Edit - I voted 35-39, meant to vote 30-34. Anywhere between 30-40 is where I see him anyway.

I put him at 30-35. Would be surprised to see him get more, not so surprised to see him get less.

Hopefully we're in the playoff hunt by the trade deadline, because I think the Jets are one of those teams that could sure use a 6'6 center.


that being said, if we're out of the picture (or close to it) he could potentially garner a decent return, especially if he has a good season.

Honestly though, he's a player I'd like to have back. The way he plays I think he has/will transition excellently into a defensive/depth guy in his later years.

I agree with this sentiment whole-heartedly. If he sticks around for a reasonable amount of $$, I think he could end up doing very well in a 3rd line role. Same goes for Poni.

If he manages 50 plus points on the 3rd line, we're a lock for the playoffs.

25-29 points for Antropov, but depending on how things go, I could see quite a few more potential points, ie. injuries or other unforeseen circumstances.

You know what REALLY sucks? Antropov will be forever immortalized as the first goal scorer of the Winnipeg Jets 2.0..... YUCK

The guy is a complete brick head. Lazy.

Anyways I say he hits 25-29 points, he will lose ice time this season (if there is a season) with Joki and Poni being in town.

I have a feeling this will be a better season for Antropov. Although he may get less ice time being pushed back to the third line for most, if not all of the season, I say he will produce 35+ pts due to the fact that many have pointed out already (contract year, better chemistry with former line mates, etc). Hopefully he will play most of the games, free of injuries.

I am most excited to see how he and Poni will do.
