Better wrist shot, Kessel or Simon?

Postby Weegie on Fri Jan 26, 2018 2:43 pm

This kid can really bring it, what a quick surprising shot just like Phil's. Don't know which is more lethal but it is a GREAT bonus to have going forward!

Wait and see.

I checked the stats in NHL 18 and it says Kessel is better.

Just watch the highlights from last night's game again, that kid has a laser shot, goalie had no chance on both goals. A pleasant surprise to have, I hope he keeps going with it.

Kessel and it isn't even up for debate. Let's temper the Simon excitement for now.

I'm not saying his is better than Kessel or that he is or will be better than Kessel, I'm saying that kid has a laser beam for a wrist shot like Phil does and if those two goals he scored with it the other night are an example of what he might become that is a good thing for the team. He can blow it right by goalies just like Phil can, he doesn't need to wind up , he releases it and the goalie doesn't even know it's coming, very quick strong shot.

Let’s see what happens when Simon starts getting top defenders on him and if he can still produce like he has in a very limited sample.

And if he stays on Crosby's line, that is a huge help!

Whist I appreciate your admiration of Simon's wrister, there is no comparison really.
