The mythical "power forward" is a player coveted by every NHL fan base - a huge guy that can hit, skate, score goals, and bull rush his way through opposing defenses. Vancouver has long clamored that the Canucks find this guy somewhere, and after scoring at a pace that would give him roughly 21 goals over an 82-game regular season in largely a 3rd line role, it looks like the Canucks have found their guy in Shawn Matthias.
We've seen that Matthias can skate, and we've seen that Matthias can play a power game, and he's scored goals this season too. But when a career 10-goal guy becomes a 20-goal guy, we should be suspicious. Is Matthias really a burgeoning power winger just finding his stride? Or are we all being fooled by random variance and a sky-high shooting percentage? And just how much money does the pending UFA deserve? We investigate after the jump.
