Weekly Question: Atlantic Snipers

This week's question asks which big name sniper in Ottawa's division is the most underrated

Mike Carlson

The Atlantic Division may not be the league's toughest division to play in, but it does feature some sharp shooters. This week's question is: which Atlantic Division sniper is the most underrated?

Steven Stamkos - Tampa Bay Lightning

A two-time winner of the Rocket Richard Trophy, Stamkos is no stranger to accolades. Despite suffering a serious leg injury in 2013-2014 that kept him out of the 2014 Olympics, Stamkos scored 25 goals in 37 games. It's possible that Stamkos is even better than we think.

Max Pacioretty - Montreal Canadians

After scoring 33 goals in 79 games in 2011-2012, Pacioretty bested his previous high this past season with 39 goals, good for fourth in league scoring, in 72 games this season.

Phil Kessel - Toronto Maple Leafs

Kessel reached the 30+ goal plateau for the fifth time in his career in 2013-2014 at just 26. Tyler Bozak is his centre.

Bobby Ryan - Ottawa Senators

Ryan's first season in Ottawa was disrupted by injury and led to a disappointing 23 goals in 70 games. Still, the 27-year-old has four seasons of 30+ goals at the NHL level.
