In the Nashville Predators' final series of the post-season against the San Jose Sharks, a number of different forwards emerged as large contributors to the team's success. Colin Wilson had an outstanding series, Mike Fisher scored a huge goal in the third overtime of game four that let the city of Nashville finally sleep at 1:15 a.m. and James Neal looked dangerous every shift.
However, there was one forward wearing gold who completed his rookie campaign on an incredibly high note, namely Viktor Arvidsson.
It is often talked about that teams who want to compete for a Stanley Cup need depth scoring. Every team that makes it to the Stanley Cup has a stellar first line and outstanding defensemen. Those games are not typically won by one top line outplaying another, but rather by bottom-six players on one team getting the best of their counterparts.
Arvidsson is exactly the kind of player you want on your third line if you want to win a Stanley Cup.
