Some troubling information in his part of the article. Only improving by 6 in +/- while getting to 30 goals. So, if he gets to 40 goals this season he will be minus 3…...Not good.
His analytics are “mostly poor.”  Well, at least we have the eye test which is A+++++++!

Craig Button summed up fast players who don’t think the game fast, “they get nowhere fast.” I’m not saying AA is a bad player, but, does he make players around him better, is my question.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
