As one of the first people to bring it up, it still amazes me:
Too bad he's not gonna reach that elusive 20 goal mark. Hasn't been as good in the second half of the season
No worries, he's got 4 more chances to get there.
He's saving himself for the playoffs, lol.
It's a mistake to judge Killorn by what he looks like when things are going well. He is what he is. And this season is pretty much the perfect Alex Killorn season. Sometimes he's good, sometimes you don't notice him, once in a blue moon he's pretty bad. And, at the end of the day, he gives you exactly 0.5 ppg, regardless of where he plays, how much he plays, etc etc etc.
He's also been an absolute beast on the penalty kill! He may not score short handed like Cirelli, but he hounds puck carriers, delays the opposing PP players from getting set up and generally is good for burning a nice amount of PK time.
I've kind of accepted Killorn for what he is. He never really makes exceptional plays, but he also rarely makes me want to throw my remote at the TV. I just kind of laugh now when he loses his footing 3 times a game.
Palat on the other hand....
