giveaways is a stat for bad passes

Give me the stats for bad passes or being out of position. Look, I'm not dumping on the guy. By all account he looks to be the real deal but c'mon, let's not prematurely give him the Calder already and anoint him as the next Red Wing legend. Tone down the expectations before we become disappointed if he doesn't live up to them. Kindl was a pretty highly thought of prospect, obviously not as high as Smith, but many would be fine if he were run out of town because he didn't live up to his limited amount of hype.

I fail to see how watching objectively makes me deluded. But as Walter said to The Dude, "I'm calmer than you are"

I believe that Kindl is better than people give him credit for, he just needs consistent playing time.

I also believe that Smith will have a solid rookies season and compete for the Calder, given that he gets the appropriate ice time and powerplay time. The kid is over-ripe and ready to bust out. 7 points in his first 14 games with limited ice time. To say he can pot 41+ over 82 games is not out of the question.

True but passes that don't necessarily result in a turnover, are those counted? They still don't connect with the intended target. But whatever, I have no more nits to pick.

Here's a virtual beer to you for hoping that he is the next Lids! I don't care if it is only 10am, it's 5 o'clock somewhere. :tounge:
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I'm hoping (and cautiously expecting) that Smith can be the Wings' replacement for Rafalski.

Big opportunity this year for Smith, Ericsson and maybe even Kindl. We'll see what they're really made of. Could be a fun year, could be a frustrating one..
