Thanks to all the people how will reply to my topic
You mean Rickard Wallin?
If the NHL starts up at this moment, I think he would be on the team. Most would label him a 3rd line center but he's a bit too lanky to be a checking line forward. I see him helping out on the top lines and maybe getting 40 points a season depending on who his wingers are.
last year he centered Gaborik and someone else...he and gab had some pretty good chemistry, and I'm assuming that's who he'll be paired with along with a crash and bang player, which the wild don't have...
I'd say probably a 50 point center...2nd or 3rd line...definite pp time tho...I think his point celing correlates to who his wingers are.
Is he comparable in that respect to Cassels, Brunette, Morrisson or even Rucchin? You know, adequate centers who are overshadowed by their linemates?
Id say he is more than adequate...I think Morrison is probably a good comparison...
