I dont think he is a better goal scorer than Jaromir Jagr, Joe Sakic, Teemu Selanne as his current stats woudl suggest. This is all I'm saying .

And not a single person in this thread said that he is. They're currently stating how pleasent a surprise it is to see Draper produce so much and that this year he should really garner a lot of attention for the selke award because of his excellent defensive play and penalty killing. Also it helps going head to head with some of the best forwards in the league night in night out. And he's done a solid job of shutting them down.

Hell, if Wes Walz gets nominated with 30 points, Draper should have been a nominee the past 2 years as well. He's at least as good as Walz defensively and on the PK. His offense this season should put him above the other great defensive specialists this season.

Draper got a huge shot of confidence at the World Champiosnhips. He was great in that series and shut down the Forsberg line and has continued his fine play into this season.

Drapes has already said in no uncertain terms that a lot of the reason is that he's been given a lot more ice time due to all the injuries that have occurred this year. It's part of the reason for the success of guys like Jason Woolley and Mathieu Schnieder and Pavel. In the face of all the injuries, these guys have not been afraid to step up their games. Drapes knows that this is a year that he may not have again, so he's gonna make the best of it and enjoy it while he can, and I don't blame him in the least.

I think it's funny as hell that he's got more goals than Brett Hull and Sergei Fedorov and a lot of other big name people.

Does Draper deserve to go to the All-Star game?

WILL he go to the All-Star game?

I know the answer to one of those questions is yes....

I'd like to see the answer to both questions be yes...along with Pavel. They both deserve to be there.

Scoring goals in transition because of good defense is being a good defensive forward. If all you do is make defensive plays you might as well win Vezina instead of some forward trophy. Draper and Blake both create chances for their team by good defense and making things him in transition.
