"lulz"

Ironically, instead of going by 3-year-old scouting reports with but one NHL under him, why not listen to people actually from Boston, like Joe Haggerty?

 

"Schaller skates pretty well for a big 6-foot-2, 219-pound left wing and occasionally flashed a dangerous wrist shot off the rush that made him the biggest offensive threat on a Bruins fourth line that actually kicked in a combined 28 goals during a very solid regular season."

More from Haggerty:

 

 

Yah 

 

Haggerty seems pretty high on Schaller

 

 

But it also merits mentioning that Schaller and his young fourth line teammates were outplayed in the second round against a Tampa Bay Lightning team utilizing a fourth line heavy on experience and talent with Chris Kunitz and Ryan Callahan part of their energy line. When it mattered most, Schaller and his fourth line partners weren’t able to make a difference, bring the kind of energy they did for most of the regular season and were part of a team-wide letdown among their forwards once things got past Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak.

Lordy, what a idiotic argument. You know sometimes teams lose depth guys that they'd like to keep in free agency because other teams offer them more, right? 

Speaking of idiotic... thanks for your input...

SO many FA's want to come a bottom feeder eh?

Yah,  so many FA 's want to move away from where they  are from.... leave an NHL playoff club..... move to one of the worst performing clubs in the league....

 

I guess they can hit the golf course earlier... but most pro hockey players  aren't looking for a shorter season...

How does them being outplayed by one of the best team's in the NHL prove your point? According to your logic, everyone on Boston who isn't Bergeron, Marchand or Pastrnak is a terrible player too?

Yeah screw it why bother trying to improve the team we'll clearly suck forever... again why are you here then? You seemingly hate everything about the club. Go somewhere else since you think everything the club does is garbage.

The Bruins did not approach Schaller's camp at any point during the regular season or playoffs to talk about a potential contract extension, and there is 'nothing new' to report on that front, a source told 98.5 The Sports Hub. A New Hampshire native that played college hockey at Providence College, Schaller would prefer to stay with the Bruins.

Didn't see that report, still doesnt make Schaller a bad player . Also stand up guy who will protect teammates.

What it means is that he played better than he is, and played himself out of the role because he will never live up to those expectations again and isn't worth that kind of money.

Never a great thing when a home town kid . / .  player wants to stay but the club isn't interested.......

Schaller's stats from the last 2 seasons:

2016-17: 59 GP | 14 5v5 PTS | 7.9 shot % | 6.0 on-ice shot %

2017-18: 82 GP | 22 5v5 PTS | 9.0 shot % | 4.8 on-ice shot %

 

Schaller has been able to produce roughly 20 even strength points per 82 games played for the last two seasons without relying on powerplay time or unsustainable shooting percentages. If he has a significant statistical regression, it will be news to me.

This says otherwise.

Yes because teams that lose 3 top 6 forwards and add none......  are stronger . ..  right ????

Exactly what I was thinking. We are hoping that EP can come in and get 82 points this season, and for Virt to score 25 goals. If not, it will be up to Schaller to boost those numbers from 11 goals to at least 30.

No one in this thread, other than the people you and @kingofsurrey have created in your heads, expect Schaller to be an offensive dynamo for the Canucks. We're expecting a hard to play against, 4th line PKer who can chip in some occasional offense.
