Right now, I am 100 times more excited about the future of Oshie and Perron than I am about Berglund. I hope he comes around, but I just don't see it happening any time soon.
I don't disagree, I just didn't think Berglund got much hype at all. It appeared to me he was the least hyped of Oshie, Perron, Johnson, or Backes. I did state that Bergie has been clearly our most disappointing player.
Again, I guess it's perspective.
I agree with your view on Oshie, but you look at preseason projections or listen to people talk and they all paint Oshie as a more talented player then he is. He is easily the hardest worker on the ice, and I really appreciate that. But I feel that he’s portrayed as a star in the making by many and then we’ll hear how he’s a flop when he never reaches his potential (like people mistakenly thinking this team would have not only made the playoffs, but had home ice in the first round).
I didn’t mean to bash Oshie at all when calling him overrated, I was bashing the expectations many are putting on him.
I mean everyone is up in arms that he didn’t make the Olympic team. Think about that……he didn’t make a team that has been tagged by far our weakest in twenty years (according to the analysts in NHL network).
Funny situation when one of your best players is also one of your most overrated.
