Simmonds is an elite 3rd line winger for a True Number 1 D-Man? RIGHTTTTT!

Which other 3rd line wingers in the NHL have scored 28 goals in a season?

I look forward to your answer.

Apparently Kulemin. Who scored 30.

But I agree Simmonds is a 2nd liner. As is Kule

Simmonds is awesome and i can't see the Flyers moving him, unless they are going for a homerun Defencemen trade.

not that I agree with him being a 3rd Liner but Alex Burrows is playing on the 3rd line right now..

even if hes a 2nd liner you can't expect to get a True Number 1 D-man for a 2nd line winger.. Would have to throw in a 1st

Someone playing on the 3rd line on an incredibly deep team doesn't make them a 3rd line winger. Just like a player playing on the 1st line of a terrible team isn't a true 1st line player. For the record btw, Wayne Simmonds is currently playing on our 1st line in Philly, so if you consider Burrows a 3rd line winger, then Simmonds is a 3rd line winger. Either way, the value you assigned to him by calling him an elite 3rd line winger is way off. He's a very good 2nd line winger who plays the kind of power forward game that any team would kill for.

Is that worth a #1 dman straight up? Heck no, not even close. But it's worth more than you alluded to.

Big fan of Wayne Simmonds ... can't stand the team he plays for though. He is a very hard worker - a warrior. This is what Pittsburgh needs, but good luck getting that from Philly. Do you honestly think Holmgren would part with him at this point and trade him to Pittsburgh? Not a chance.

Which is why he mentioned Simmons "in a package"...not straight up.

According to virtually every Blue Jackets fan on these boards, RJ Umberger.

Although, at second glance, he topped out at 26, not 28.
