Then we tell Mats to go have a meatball.

Pavol Demitra
Age: 33
Date of birth: November 29, 1974
Place of Birth: Dubnica, Czech. (now Slovakia)
Country: SVK
HT: 6-0 WT: 202
Shoots/Catches: L
Salary: $4,500,000
NHL Seasons: 14
Drafted by Ottawa in 1993 (9/227).

ASSETS: Has terrific quickness, excellent finishing qualities and the ability to set up teammates. Excels at both ends of the ice and is very sportsmanlike.

FLAWS: Can be thrown off his game with physical play. Has had a history of getting hurt, specifically concussions, which have limited his excellence.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Top six forward.

That alone is reason enough to forget about Demitra. We have too many forwards like that now, that is most of the reason why we lost in the playoffs. We need someone who can play a physical game.
