I was saying that McGinn might end up having the talent to be a top 6 powerforward after he was acquired. The story about what he went through to get over his back problems and come back without letting his game slip. And it was really easy to notice that he had some eye popping season long shooting percentages over 13% with one down year.
I remember in the Denver post articles early before he even played a game he talked about scoring more and being given more ice time. He was really excited.
He went on to put up 55 shots in 17GP vs 104 in 61GP with SJ. 14.5% on those 55 shots was not even his best statistical season, that was 14.8%.
The kid has a lot of heart and you can see it in the way he plays the game. Absolutely underrated shot and deceptive speed. (He won a fastest skater competition in the AHL) With as fast and as big as he is.. He is absolutely dangerous anywhere on the ice.
He may not have the pure talent that some kids do but he has the compete level and two very good assets between his speed and his shot which make him dangerous in that north/south style he plays.
Stastny is probably the most perfect center for a guy like McGinn. Stastny has a tendency to get the most out of guys that can get themselves open and create space for themselves and his line.
McGinn won't need to be creative and neither will Jones, Stastny has enough playmaking ability to run a line with two big body pure shooters on his wings.
McGinn and Jones are the guns and Stastny is the brains, watch him pull 50 goals or more out of those two (Combined*) by the end of 2012-13. That line may not be a true first line but they will play a fun to watch blue collar game every night, and hopefully make a effective second line by the end of the season.
