Scott Darling, Scottie Upshall sign in Europe

  Scott Darling, Scottie Upshall sign in Europe A pair of veteran NHL players have decided to take offers overseas in search of teams.Once a Stanley Cup champion with the Chicago Blackhawks, Darling’s career quickly unraveled over the last few seasons. A big contract with the Carolina Hurricanes put pressure on him to finally become a starting goaltender in the league, a position he was unable to hold for very long. By the second year of the deal, Darling was already buried in the minor leagues, only to see his contract bought out this summer.

patrik laine winnipeg jets nhl. The next generation of the NHL is in good hands, with the likes of McDavid and Matthews and Patrik Laine not merely promising to be superstars in the near future, but playing like superstars now.

There is always interesting talk around Patrik Laine and for good reason. He has unbelievable talent, but also does not appear to help the team when he is not scoring. Unlike someone like Nikolaj Ehlers who manages to be the Winnipeg Jets best zone entry player, Laine sometimes lacked that secondary skill. This season he has become a better passer which has led to talk of him being a better all-around player. But has Laine actually become a better all-around player?

Based on the stats alone, Laine is still the player he was last season. What is truly concerning is he seems to have regressed completely from the player he was in his second season. Something happened that led to him regressing a whole lot and not really coming back to that form. He has improved a bit this year, but it is nominal at best.

Patrik Laine should have every incentive to continue on his tornado pace; not just for the sake of capturing the Rocket Richard Trophy now in reach after racking up 16 goals in his last 12 games, but to preserve his strongest bargaining chip in future negotiations. As it stands right now, Laine has

I don’t know enough about hockey to say something is wrong with Patrik Laine. Maybe something changed in his playing style from before he was drafted to now. Maybe his second season was the anomaly and there is no way to get Laine back to being that player, but I don’t think that is true. Laine did look like a different player at the start of the season. It has not lasted, but there might be something there if it can be unlocked for an extended period of time.

The Jets are a team that needs all their players helping them. While Laine is really good at creating offence, he is not good at getting the puck to create offence. Is this something that can be changed or is Laine simply the player he is and nothing will ever change that? Should the Jets try and get him more involved in the play than he appears to be now?

In all honest, Patrik Laine has been in the limelight for so long this season and the coverage of him so in-depth that really a lot of what could be said Laine has noted himself that skating is a weakness of his (despite still being a fairly strong skater) and wishes to improve upon this area over the summer.

I’m not going to get into the power play because the Jets seem to have a different power play strategy than the Washington Capitals do with Alexander Ovechkin and the power play has looked decent at times this year, so I am going to let sleeping dogs lie.

Truth is, Laine looks like a good offensive player who cannot drive play for the life of him. His second season hints that there might be something more there, but it has been a year and a bit and we have not seen that player since. So what now? Nothing, but hoping Laine one day gets back to that player he was in his second season and becomes a bigger asset to the Jets.
