Dallas Stars 2010-11 Season Grades: Tomas Vincour

Once again it's that time of year here on Defending Big D where we take a look at each player that suited up for 20 or more games this season (and are still with the team) - and take a look back at their season.  What was good about it, what wasn't so good, and the lasting impression they left us as we go into summer.

2010-11 - Tomas Vincour 24 1 1 2 -5 4 0 0 0 26

Key Stat:  12.7  - Vincour's CORSI rating, the highest among players who played at least 20 games this season for Dallas. 

The Good:  Though he earned a long look at training camp, it wasn't until the Stars were riddled with injuries that Vincour earned a call-up. Vincour immediately made an impact upon his arrival, though not on the scoresheet. For many fans, Vincour passed the "eye-ball test." He began by showing a knack for defensive positioning that most forwards his age rarely possess, and then started showing up on numerous scoring chances. He gelled with most any line he was put on, but really showed good chemistry with Jamie Benn and Steve Ott

The Bad:  For as good as he looked, the two points in 24 games isn't really all that impressive. Chalk that up to a young forward on his first spin with the pros. And let's not forget the questionable Shea Weber hit, one that Vincour was lucky to not be hurt on.

The Bottom Line:  Scoresheet aside, Vincour looked like he belonged with the pros. Defensive responsibility, physicality, playmaking ability....it's all there. The goal-scoring touch will come in time. Here's hoping he gets the same thing out of the Calder Cup playoffs that Jamie Benn did before him. This kid has a bright future.

The Vote:  Rate Vincour after the jump on a scale of A to F (A being the best of course) based on his performance relative to his potential and your expectations for the season.
