Petersen has more giveaways than nedved does, and although both have terrible stats, Petersen has 5 assists to Nedveds 10.

Well, im no way suggesting Peterson is the real answer, but on the possitive side, Peterson has no where to go but up on the potential side and it takes minutes to get there..

my stance is.. Nedveds fitting in on the 4th line and im pleasantly surprisied with his adjustment to stay on the team.. funny part is, he had to surprise alot of people just to make the 4th line.. did anyone truly expect much more from nedved? i know i didn't..

It is true that younger players typically have more upside, but players don't just stop learning new things.

I think Ryan Smyth is a much better player than he has ever been in his career this season. And I don't think it's just because of a contract year.

That's not a very good example. Smyth is only 2 years older than Toby and has been in the NHL for over ten years. Ten years where he deserved to have the chance to improve his game at an NHL level. Toby, if you count all his attempts to crack the line-up in the NHL has nothing to show for but his average defensive capabilities and a roster spot on the Oilers line-up. He's so brutal he couldn't get regular time on the Pens roster when they pretty much had an AHL team depth wise not all that long ago.

Toby was your only string of positivity, I'm surprised it held up that long.

Is it spider cast or something?
