Under Hartley, who scores more points: Bouw, Wideman, or Gio?
With Hartley wanting to implement an offensive system, I have high expectations for these three. Naturally, I'm expecting Wideman to be the leader, but I am somewhat expecting Bouw to hit 40+ this upcoming season.
So, with Hartley, what are your predictions for number of points scored and who scores the most?
Logic would dictate if Hartley's system increases scoring, that if either of Gio or Bouwmeester's scoring increased, so would their linemates (Wideman). Since Wideman already is proven to have the best scoring touch of the three, he will score the most points.
Wideman is the best offensive defenseman on the team and will most likely slot in as our #3/#4 defenseman behind Jbo/Butler/Gio meaning he will be able to play focus more of playong offense than in previous years.
I'm actually pretty happy with our defense. Wideman will complement Bouwmeester, while Giordano will complement Butler more because Butler & Bouwmeester was as soft as some 10,000 thread count sheets.
I disagree Jbo-Butler were fine and will be better if Gio-Wideman can take over some of Jbo-Butler minutes. Gio is not a ES scorer like Jbo or Wideman. Let Butler and Gio be the physical defensive players on their lines and Wideman and Jbo the offensive members.
