Personally I like Mattias Tedenby, but he has not been producing this season, which is a great shame given some of the highlight reel stick handling goals he scored last season.
His shot count is slightly lower this year, 1.1 S/G, opposed to 1.5 S/G last year. However it is his shooting percentage which has taken the largest drop, 2.2% S% this year, opposed to 9.2% last year.
Could some of his lack of production be due to playing with Clarkson who as we all know, is more of a shoot first, ask question later, kind of player than a passer? In the last game against Winnipeg Teddy appeared to be fairly free in the slot but Clarkson opted to go for the Clarkaround™ (which failed), rather than pass.
Tedenby has average 10 mins TOI per game, according to behind the net. Last year he was playing on average 10.5 mins TOI per game, so he is not having reduced minutes this season. Then again line mates may well have a bigger impact than TOI.
This is my first post, hope its ok. Just wanted to see what you all feel about Tedenby?
