    Vesey should've become one of the stars of the night in the whole league had they not reduced the list to two players, both of them reaching milestones.

    He needs to be spoon fed way too much ES and PP time for what he is to reach his current goal totals.

    His slash line has actually been good since the trade deadline, so if this is the Vesey we have moving forward I’ll be happy. Fun fact, he has the 3rd and 4th highest ixGF and ixGF/60 for the whole year. He also has good zone entry/exit numbers, which also bodes well for the future.

    I get it that the meme is that he’s not an NHLer, but he’s perfectly fine to have as a bottom-9 winger.

    How about having the proper linemates? Vesey is what he is. He is a player that goes to the net and scores a lot of his goals around there. He needs linemates that are playmakers and possession players. Needless to say we have far and few between of those this year.

    Spoon fed time? He gets the 2nd least amount of ice time on out of the regular players :laugh:

    Just stop, please.

    Sometimes animosity towards a player clouds reason.

    Zuccarello 69 games played--average ice time 18.52--goals 14
    Buchnevich 62 games played--average ice time 14.55--goals 14

    Both Zucc and Buch get lots of power play time. Zucc has 1 goal--15 assists--16 power play points. Buch has 5 goals--9 assists--14 power play points.

    Vesey 67 games played--average ice time 14.09--goals 15. Vesey gets some power play time. IMO he doesn't use it all that well and has only one assist this year. His stats aren't feeding off it for sure. Personally I'm not a fan of him on the power play at least at this point in time.

    Even strength--Zucc--13 goals-32 points, Buch-9 goals-25 points--Vesey 15 goals-21 points. Vesey averaging almost 5 minutes less time than Zucc and about 1 minute less than Buch.

    Not arguing that Vesey should be on the top two lines--just saying the hatred of him by some posters here is a little bit over the top.

    So the plan is to find him the perfect linemates so he might get his, what, 35 points? His most common linemates last season were Stepan and Nash and he put up 27 points in 80 games. I think the good linemates are best used elsewhere.

    If you're paying Vesey to be a 3rd/4th line winger and the production we have seen out of him recently is the real Vesey then he's worth keeping around.

    "scores between 15-20 goals per year"

    Goal totals:
    2016-17: 16
    2017-18: 15

    Congrats on back-to-back 20 point seasons, Jimmy!

    P.S. Why don't the posters that will kill an offensive defenseman for a bad +/- kill a big winger for it?

    It was his rookie season last year. He didnt always play with Nash and Stepan. Although his best play was seemingly when he was with Nash. He was pretty good in the Ottawa series playing with those two.

    He has 15 goals this year on a bad team. His second year. He is going to improve imo and will be a 15-20 goal scorer throughout his career. Maybe reaching 25 once or twice. That is more than acceptable for a 3rd line winger.

    If you felt he was going to be anything more than that then you set yourself up for disappointment.

    It's not his job to play defense. Just look at the name. DEFENSEman.

    I would definitely be satisfied with 15-20 goals if he wasn't bad at everything else.

    This is quite the exaggeration for a 2nd year player.

    3rd/4th line winger. Good size. Plays physical. Plays hard. Has an edge to him. His defensive game needs improvement. Decisions with the puck and positioning needs work. But let's not act like he is some complete lost cause.

    Is this the thread where you post for the guy that scores more goals than Buchnevich?

    Yes, he is a 2nd year player. He is also going to be able to rent a car this season. Both factors should be considered, but history isn't overrun with players who were 25 point players at 23 and 24 and were significant contributors later on.

    He can't make or receive a pass, which is why he's where sustained pressure goes to die. You listed four positive attributes which all largely amount to "he sometimes puts a shoulder into someone". He is adept at creating space for himself with his body along the boards, which he uses to delay the inevitable turnover, which I suppose is somewhat useful.

    He also has 5 more games and EIGHTEEN fewer assists. Then there are all those things that hockey players do besides scoring. Not saying Buch is better at all of them but you didn't even consider them.

    Why make yourself look this bad? Don't you want to seem like you actually get the sport and can contribute to intelligent discussion?

    Pretty funny. Vesey, whose only identifiable skill is finishing, passes Buchnevich in goals, in part due to the work of Buchnevich, and you get as excited as when you're petting the rabbits.

    On the question of bad +/-'s--the worst is Desharnais' which is not really a surprise. After him is Vesey. Close behind are DeAngelo and Skjei's has been plummeting. Zibanejad's and Fast who is arguably as good a defensive forward as we have come after them. Shattenkirk's is kind of a putrid but he hasn't played in a while. Conversely there is Marc Staal's who somehow or another is a +10. I would say though that Pionk and Staal have been our best pair lately.

    No, this is where we post for the guy who has played less time this season but has more points than Vesey.

    I guess that means we could also talk about David Desharnais in this thread as well. And Jesper Fast. And Kevin Shattenkirk.

    I’m not saying Vesey is a better player than Buch. I’m not even a big fan of Vesey. But people on here say he’s a borderline NHLer. The guy is a free asset. A player who can rotate between the third and fourth line and put up 15-20 goals a year and plays tough. I use Buchnevich as a comparison because so many posters are in love with the guy but hate Vesey. Meanwhile Vesey has more goals in as many games.

    Buchnevich has waaaaay more offensive upside than Vesey. You are also missing the point of my post

    Combining that post with the one in the Buch thread, it's pretty obvious that I didn't miss the point in your post.

    I’m not at all a Buch fan if that’s what you’re implying. True. Why should I be? What has he shown in the past few years. Never going to reach his potential. Hey. Hope I’m wrong

    So the only bright side to Jimmy Vesey is that he scores more goals than Buchnevich?

    Perhaps one day he’ll do literally anything else better.
