Good point - none of these guys was a prolific goal scorer and only Arkhipov showed flashes of breaking out into an offensive threat. Hartnell was a decent net crasher, but even in juniors he wasn't a big goal scorer. I still cringe when I think of us drafting Upshall ahead of Lupul and Semin. That said - unless Radulov continues to progress, I think some of the complaints about Trotz will be justified.
