Hollweg on and on

There is some merit to what you say. Hollweg can be a dangerous hitter who instills a bit of fear into the opposing player. But that is about it and he has not advanced any other part of his game to make him a net positive force on the team. If he can't score and can't fight his hitting is not enough, especially when too many of the hits are cheap shots, or at the least, penalties.
