New York Islanders: Predicting The Isles Top 5 Point Leaders In 2016-17
Number 3: Brock Nelson
On paper it looked like Brock Nelson had a good year in 2015-2016. The only issue is if you watched Nelson from start to finish, he went to sleep in the second half and when it mattered most.
He finished with 40 points (26 goals and 14 assists). The issue with him is finding some sort of consistency.
Goals can come at random times, but there just seemed to be a lack of effort there at times. For instance in the Tampa Bay series, on the Game 3 OT winner from Brian Boyle you could clearly see Brock Nelson just cruising around.
He isn’t the best defensive player but understand it’s the lack of effort shown from him at times that can make you crazy.
Despite this he is coming off back to back season of 40 points, and like Garth Snow is I am expecting him to develop a little bit more.
Final Prediction: 48 points
