From Chris Iorfida at CBC:
What follows is a look at 20 surprising playoff goal totals over the past 70 years of playoff hockey. There are some good players on the list, some highly regarded prospects and some journeymen. or didn’t go on to have fine NHL careers. It’s a list concerning players who exceeded goal scoring expectations.
Matthew Barnaby, Buffalo Sabres, 1998: 15GP, 7G, 6A, 13PTS
This one is more surprising years later than it was at the time. Barnaby had showed promise with 43 points in 68 games in his second season (although he dipped to 25 points in 1997-98, the year that followed). He never reached such offensive heights again, settling for a career spent mainly as a provocateur. Or in hockey parlance, a pest.
