I mean it seems he isn't a top liner, but is the second line something he could handle consistantly you think?
Fritsche almost always was on the right side in Columbus. He is a right handed shot. (Does that make the left side or the right the "offhand side"? - I don't know)
He has the speed and the board skills to be a 2nd line winger. He is willing (somewhat) to charge the net, moreso than other Jackets were, but no one was pulling a Holmstrom and just parking there.
Zherdev also played as a RW. I don't know who else you have on that side as options.
We just got rid of 3 RWs (Vyborny, Zherdev, Fritsche) and leaves us with 1 (Boll) and maybe Voracek (if he makes it). We'll have to see how that goes this season.
