Your Say: Patrick Wiercioch

The Silver Seven staff have given out their grades. Now it's your turn!

We finished our player grades for the 2013 season on Friday, but that was just nine jerks talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. So, we figured why not give our readers a chance to cast their votes? And with that in mind, we present our Your say series!

Patrick Wiercioch Recap


Some nights Patrick Wiercioch was invisible. Other nights he was the most dynamic player on the blueline. He had an excellent March when playing alongside Sergei Gonchar, and many advanced stats people will tell you that it was Wiercioch who made Gonchar go and not the other way around. When the season came to an end and players returned to the lineup, Wiercioch became the odd man out in a numbers game. He only played once in the playoffs, skating for just 1:47 before getting hurt and not showing up in the lineup again.

What Wiercioch needs to work on is being more consistent. Now that Gonchar is gone/richer, Wiercioch has a chance to evolve into the dedicated second offensive threat on the blueline not just a fill-in. It will be an excellent opportunity for him.

Highest grade: B+
Lowest grade: C+
