Marcus Foligno and Flawed Expectations


‘Instead of asking Marcus Foligno to be a reliable scorer, we should ask him to be Steve Ott – a high energy, defensive-minded, puck-possessing hitter who can score a little and drive opponents insane. Did he do that in 2013? Yes. As much as his ceiling suggests? No. But for a rookie season, to provide those things and some scoring was a success and should give the organization a positive feeling about where he’d headed.’
