J.T. Wyman Appreciation Thread

I'm gauging how the HFboarders feel about JT Wyman - 14 goal 16 assists in Hamilton this year. What's his upside? 6,2 199 he's got the size and speed to play in the bigs. How tough is he? Could he challenge for a 4th line RW spot next year? Thanks

I think 95% of the posters here have only seen him play in his brief call up with the habs, and he looked pretty invisible IMO. You probably have a better opinion on him.

He didn't show much in his couple of game call-up, but he could eventually find the niche as a Dandenault type player due to his versatility. A 13th forward / 7th d-man type. He's got good size, decent skills.

I doubt he has a shot next year as guys like White, Pyatt, Pacioretty, Darche (if signed), Trotter, Desharnais should all be ahead of him, but he could be a potential call-up.

yeah, I'm opposed to this thread.

He was a fixture on the Dogs defensive line before, seems to have found his offensive game as of late.

Could turn into a defensive specialist that can play a puck pressure game.

We should thank him for finishing PK Subban's highlight reel pass.

He's having a big year, nice to see him picking up the points, as he always works hard and is a smart player. He could challenge for a 4th line spot in the future, but imo he lacks the grit, which will hurt him as the Habs sorely need to add some grit on the bottom lines, since our top 6 is pretty much set baring and major changes.

He has the size and speed, is good in his own end, so he can play the PK and has some hands, so there's hope for him but I'd love to see him get his nose dirty more and be more aggressive but I would be surprised if that were to happen (have been watching him play all 4 years at Dartmouth and both seasons in Hamilton)

At worst, he's a decent depth guy to have around, that hopefully continues to get better.

He played great the few minutes he had here, did the small things right and was a force on the ice. He's the guy all the Ryan White fans should be drooling over.

He looked pretty good in preseason, at least impressed me. He can easily be a good 4th liner methinks. He's got intriguing size and speed.
