New York Islanders More Losers Than Winners
Winner: Brock Nelson
It’s great to see that Brock Nelson is scoring. It’s unfortunate that he’s the only one. Brock being a winner is more a reflection on the team than on him. He’s a winner just because there are so many losers.
His two points in the last four games (1G,1A) puts him right behind John Tavares for second in team scoring with 11 points. After that the scoring depth drops off with the aforementioned Denis Seidenberg at eight points.
And it’s not like Nelson has been some sort of revelation this year. Brock’s just being Brock.
He’s shooting around his 12.4% shooting percentage, and scoring at the same rate that he generally scores at. So again, it’s not that Nelson is this standout player for the Isles.
It’s just that, Tavares aside, he’s the only player that’s shown ay sort of consistency even in this ridiculously turbulent times.
So, Nelson gets a winners vote. Congrats Brock. You’re a winner because your teammates have set the bar so depressingly low.
