Yeah, he was hyped up bigtime by the organization too, he was propped up by the system in Ottawa and the great players that surrounded him there. So was a guy like Janne Laukkanen. In part, they helped make that team successful from the mid to late 90's by buying into Martin's system and playing it to perfection, but as the team became a powerhouse they were made to look better than they were by their teammates. Pitlick was a guy who had some good qualities and was good as like a #6 defenseman, but he was relied on too heavily here.
