I think it was more than his 50 point season. If you compare some of his earlier stats to Burns, they're very close or better.
He's steadily improved since the Wild drafted him. I used to be a Dumba hater, but he's shown me enough to where I'd be angry at the team if they traded him. If he hadn't gotten injured last season, he was on track for 60 points, which would have beat his previous season by 10 points.
Part of Dumba's backslide could just be the team in general. Zu
I think this is true. And you're not gonna change a tiger's spots and all that. But that's my point: I just want them to occupy a space better with their big bodies, stop vacating the space, stop giving it away. I don't think that's too much to ask.
But it might be.
Im not talking about the whining and playing the refs I’m talking about the intimidation ,hammering the other team, hard nosed semi clean hockey. I don’t want another Carcillo or Downie, I’m talking about having guys with a blend of size,skating,toughness and a little old time hockey mentality. Guys like Getzlaf or Perry in their prime or like the Tkachuk brothers of today. If there is a chance to draft a player like that in the next couple of years , I think the Flyers should trade some asset
