    Who do you predict will be this season's unsung hero on your team? The guy who does excellent things quietly, in the background of the more noticeable players.


    I'm kind of "between teams" now, since I had enough of Ottawa's dumb-assery, so I can't give a name myself. :)

    Year after year it's Trevor Lewis, so I'm gonna change that this year and say Alex Iafallo.

    Perreault if he can stay healthy and have a bit of a bounce back

    For the Caps I'll say Chandler Stephenson.

    Kapanen, will probably get buried for plugs like Hyman and Brown despite being better than them in every way.

    Rask for the Canes

    I'd say Sam Reinhart but I see him producing quite a bit playing with Skinner and Eichel, so instead I'll go with Jake McCabe. He's looked the part so far in preseason play after being terribly inconsistent last year. He may be babysitting Dahlin until he gets acclimated too which will be integral for the team's success.

    Like every year- Jesper Fast. Dude is probably the best 4th liner in the league, he fits well on every line with great defense/hustle+some offense

    Joakim Ryan. He will quietly bail out Burns on a regular basis when he's on walkabout.

    Zaitsev.
    I think he'll regain his form but the current opinions will remain regardless.
    Now i'm not talking around the league opinions, more the message boards types.

    Mark Giordano.

    I mean, he's not horribly unsung, but the singing of his praises would metaphorically be the sounds of a dozen people trying to sing happy birthday in tune.

    Jaden Schwartz is far from in the background. He might be our best player.

    For me, I'm expecting Tyler Bozak to put up about 45-50 points and be a key cog and get little to no recognition for it.

    Hard to let go, aint it?
    I often questioned my sanity (as did many others :laugh:) during the Ballard era.

    I second this. In fact, Iafallo was the first to come to mind for me.

    Can I say Nick Backstrom?

    If not him maybe Niskanen. That guy hardly gets any credit, but he's a rock on D.

    It's heart-breaking. I've been an avid fan since Alfie's first season, 1995. :/

    Im gonna say J.T. the bozo Miller. Just have a feeling this guy has a career year and actually performs well in playoffs too.
