Give Daigle credit for even being ABLE to play for Lemaire! He's playing very well (as evidenced last night against Ottawa) on a below-average team. I, for one, am glad to have him back in the NHL. It needs more speedsters with skill, and that's what Daigle has in buckets. Now if he'd just shoot more....
Whoa Whoa Whoa, you just cannot compare a finess player with a potential power foward who is playing on a bonafide top 6 NHL team in a pivotal role. It takes 5,6 or 7 years for a power foward to find a niche and Spezza is WAY ahead of himself. I will not call Daigle a bust but to compare him to Spezza will not win you many arguments.

In my opinion a bust is a first rounder who plays under 100 NHL games which Daigle obviously is not. And yes credit Daigle and Lemaire with having him buy into the system. But no comparisons with Spezza thats just crazy talk.

I cannot believe I'm sticking up for Senators blah
