- Ron Tugnutt. He gets trashed on alot, but he's played in a total of 5 games in a year span. He won't post .930 abd 2.00 numbers by playing once every 3 months. Amazing attitude and supurb team player, but has regressed quite a bit. Whether it's due to the lack of games or age.
As a Sens fan, I love Tugger and feel tied to him forever in that horrible moment on April 28, 1997 when Derek Plante's shot bounced off his glove and into the net in overtime of game 7 to deny the Sens their first ever series victory. *sigh*
When York come back from injury, the Preds look something like this...
1. Hamhuis/York - If Hamhuis continues to heat up, he might be our #3 for good here soon.
2. Arkhipov/Hall - Adam is in a similar situation to Hamhuis. He's been hot lately and is right up there with Arkhipov.
3. Chris Mason - everyone laughs but he has consistently outplayed Vokoun when given the chance.
4. Shishkanov - AHL rookie of the month.
1.) The 4th best defenseman on your team.
Depending on the night, recently either Lydman or Reghyr. Could be Warriner, Gauthier or Leopold, though - the top 5 are pretty decent, really. 2.) The 8th best offensive forward on your team.
Matthew Lombardi - there's a precipitous drop-off after our #1 scorer, though. 3.) Your team's backup goalie.
If he clears waivers, Roman Tuek 4.) Your team' 3rd best prospect.
1) I'd say Lydman I think, but it could go either way (Leopold, Warrener, Regehr, LYDMAN, Gauthier, Ference)
2) I agree, it would have to be Lombardi, though he is losing ice time the closer we get to the POs (Iginla, Conroy, Reinprecht, Saprykin, Donovan, McAmmond, Gelinas, LOMBARDI, Kobasew, Yelle, Clark, Nieminen)
3) If Turek is gone, Jamie McLennan who has been solid this year (Kiprusoff starts of course)
4) I agree with Ramholt (Phaneuf, Nystrom, RAMHOLT, Taratukhin, Krahn)
I assume you have those rankings statistically because I believe Antropov and Stajan are tied with 24 points.
However, the ranking is a tad deceiving because for instance Alex Mogilny only has 17 points (mainly for the fact that he's played only 22 games) and would be the 11 best Leaf forward offensively.
If I were to rank the Leafs forward in terms of offensive capability/potential and not necessarily on their production this year, I'd have Reichel as the 8th best offensive forward behind Sundin,Mogilny,Nolan,Roberts,Nieuwendyk,Tucker, and Antropov.
Actually I did include Mogilny in my analysis. I just put Reichel as the 7th (ahead of Antropov) and then Stajan and Antropov tied for 8th.
Technically Renberg also has the same number of points as well (24), and Ponikarovsky is only one less than that (23), but I figured that listing 4 players would be overkill so I just picked the two that I think currently have the best offensive instincts.
