Pimp C Posted March 14, 2015 Share Posted March 14, 2015 While I can appreciate your realism as compared to some others on these boards but c'mon man, lighten the f*ck up. IMO a #1 center can be a fairly subjective term anyway. It could be argued that Toews isn't a #1 due to a lack of elite offensive skills but I'd be happier than a pig in sh*t to have him on our top line, same can be said for Bergeron. Maybe some older posters can correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Datsyuk put up 35 pts in his rookie year while playing fairly average to below average away from the puck? My memory of his rookie year isn't the best considering I was still breast feeding and taking constant flak for it at middle school. What I'm getting at is it's unfair to pigeonhole Jared with a projection like that after one season as a teenager. Plenty of players end up being better rounded players than expected or excelling in areas that weren't originally part of their games. Toews and Bergeron are easily #1 centers. The Datsyuk thing is like one in a million. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
