To meet eligibility, your selected player must meet the following criteria:
Games played: 41+
Fights: 4 or less
(This filters out goons)
You can select up to three but don't have more than one from a team. Here are mine:
Mattias Tedenby- 6 points in 43 games. +/- -15. Corsi -5.38. Quality of competition -.043. Off zone starts 50.7%. Hits 25. Blocked shots 1.
Why he's the worst: Small (5'10, 175lbs), produce no offense, not physical at all, and played against relatively weak players. Also had over 50% of his starts in the offensive zone. On the ice for as many goals against as Ryan Carter (other 4th liner) in a little over half the amount of games.
Why he isn't the worst: Still a young player. Great speed.
Nino Niederreiter - 1 point in 55 games. +/- -29. Corsi -.0726. Quality of competition -.047. Off zone start 46%. Hits 129.
Why he's the worst: Nino was clearly not NHL ready. He produced no offense and was -29 against a fairly low quality of competition. Playing for the Islanders doesn't help.
Why he isn't the worst: For starters he is a rookie. Also no Islander with 30+ games played was on the ice for fewer goals against. His hit numbers are also solid.
