Default The Evolution of Mr. Overtime (our not-#1C)

Has anyone else noticed how dominant he's been in the faceoff circle this year?

http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?repo...faceoffWinPctg

Among all positions, minimum 200 faceoffs taken:
- 4th in the NHL in overall FOW% at 57.1% (career avg is only 50.2%)
- 61.5% defensive zone
- 70W-56L when the team is behind
- 94W-63L when the score is close

There was mention earlier in the season that he had told the team he was going to work on being a more complete player in the offseason...

Results:
- Ridiculously better at faceoffs
- Playing bigger and meaner
- In spite of playing more physical, still doesn't take penalties
- Has 16 points in 19 games, while "slumping"

At only 25 years old, the evolution of #1C Sean Monahan is not even close to being complete.


Edit: fixed my error and drew attention to my fix by bolding it

Stats be damned. Still a #3C on a contender

Nonsense. The only team on which Sean Monahan is the #3C is Pittsburgh. Maybe Washington, I don't know how much centre Kuznetzov actually plays.

Backlund is a #3C on a contender. What this team really needs is a big bear of a #2C. They need 28 year old Ryan Kesler. Someone who is all in with Tkachuk during scrums, who can physically dominate. They have everything else.

Haha just poking some fun at other folks. I think he is a #1C but a lot of people think he is a #2 or #3 if the Flames go on a skid.

He had 36 hits in 78 games last season (0.4 hits per game).
This season he has 18 hits in 19 games (0.9 hits per game).

You are obviously trolling with this comment, but I doubt you even know what a contender looks like.

Ah, gotcha. I agree he’s a #1C. I understand he’s not elite like Crosby or McDavid but he’s still a damn good hockey player and he’s top two on most teams.

I didn’t believe they could win with the playoff Sean Monahan we witnessed last season.

But if this compete level and mean streak continue into the playoffs... that’s a totally different beast.

And would make him a legit #1 centre.

When you’re the only one at your party, technically you are the most fun. And technically correct is the best type of correct.

Great post!

Especially this bit. Puts things in context

Monahan has been "pre-apex" for his whole career. Of course he hasn't measured up to 10 year vets.

We might be entering 3 years of apex Monahan, a ppg player, good on the dot, defensively responsible with a physical element.
