The New Kid Ish Take on the Block

Here's Kid Ish with a quick look at Despres & Wisniewski as Ducks players. How are the new Anaheim Ducks defensemen doing since their arrival? I put together some of Simon Despres‘ numbers, James Wisniewski‘s numbers, and the team's numbers since March 3, and put them together into some charts. Because both players are defensemen, I am sticking with shots attempted and scoring chances as my main numbers here. Neither player has put up significant points, so I am discounting production here. (Although in Wisniewski's case, he was brought in to produce, but he's only appeared in very few...

The roots put down in Columbus by defenseman James Wisniewski since he joined the Blue Jackets in 2011 have grown strong. Stronger, though, is Wisniewski’s desire to win a Stanley Cup. And that, he said, has made his deadline-day trade to the Anaheim Ducks much easier to swallow.

Ray Stein commentary: Jackets resemble movie: It’s not ‘Miracle on Ice’

Ray: Can John Davidson or Jarmo Kelalainen explain to CBJ fans what is going on? David Clarkson will turn out to be a solid player, and signing Cam Atkinson was a great move. The James Wisniewski trade was a loss, skill-wise, but perhaps not as great as we would have thought at the beginning of the year.
