Ghost as Rookie of the Year?

Recommended Posts

Back to the reason i brought up Ekblad in the 1st place. Dude is a good defenseman and will only get better in time.

 

But to compare his stats to when he won it to Ghost's....

 

Ekblad: gp 78 gls 15 ast 21 pts 36 +18 gwg 4

 

Ghost:gp 64 gls 17 ast 29 pts 46 +8 gwg 5

 

That is pretty impressive i think. One is 6-4 216 the other is 5-10 185. So that was the reason for my comparison.

 

Ghost numbers even are better than Ekblad's in his 2nd season. It would have been interesting if they were competing against each other in the same year for it.

 

And i'm not saying Ghost is better than Ekblad just using him as a current benchmark.

 

So i think/hope Ghost has done enough to earn the same recognition. But i know folks will go back to the age difference between the two....again.

 

One time they'll applaud him because he's so young...the next it's his crutch...any how...

Ghost has been superbly impressive for the Flyers and our first glimpse of what's going to be an incredibly mobile defence...which is huge in this NHL. I'm not knocking Ghost...I own a Ghost shirt and wear it proudly.

 

But like Panarin, I just think comparing what one guys doing and what another did when he was FIVE years younger is kind of silly. I mean picture Ekblad at 23...he 's barely 20 and looks like a grizzled vet back there. He had every bit as big of an impact on an inept Panthers franchise as Ghost has had ...only when he was 18. I doubt many though Gostisbehere was even going to actually make the NHL when we picked him at 18.

You mean the guy who is a year and a half older than Ghost??? :ph34r:

 

So let's give it to Mcdavid since he is the youngest....right.

Gostisbehere, 23, had a huge impact on the Flyers after being recalled from Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League on Nov. 14. The Calder Trophy finalist finished fifth among rookies in points (46), second in power-play points (22) and tied for second in game-winning goals (five), and was tied for second among all players with four overtime goals. He also set a League record for rookie defensemen with a point in 15 straight games. Gostisbehere finished fifth on the Flyers in scoring despite playing 64 games, and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team.

        Ghost has been a big part of that incredible run. So I'd say he's deserving of whatever credit he's getting.

      You know, the other night I was leaving the local ice rink after practice and the game was on the TV in the lobby.  A parent of one of the kids I coach glances over and says "Ghost got another point tonight".  We then started talking about the kid, and how he has almost singlehandedly become the reason many are watching the Flyers again.  Just as we're saying that, Ghost makes a terrific defensive play by anticipating a pass, using his speed, and eliminating the chance the other way - all inside

      When Ghost made that deke move at the blueline and then rang it off the post with around 5min left vs Winnipeg last night, you could see the confidence in him.  Just after that, on the same shift, Ghost was carrying the puck through the neutral zone aggressively attempting to deke the opposing defenders.  It wasn't a mark of a new-to-the-NHL kid.  It was confidence.   Which is why it surprised me that Hakstol didn't get him right back out out on the ice.  Surprised me even more when du

      Ghost brought life to the Flyers team. He helped make them a playoff team, and is definitely one of the fun guys to watch in this league.    But if you're going to say McDavid didn't play enough games, can't the Panarin corner say the same about Ghost? Or do we draw the line where it conveniently suits us Flyer fans?   To me Panarin, as great as he is, played 6 seasons of pro hockey and had Kane playing next to him. He definitely had the most help, agewise and teamwise.
