What I'm gathering here is that people would want a team of:

Orr - Byers - Callahan
Voros - Rissmiller - Moore

Yea, we are sure gonna win a hell of a lot of games and score many many goals with those guys...

But hey! They improved their skating, try real hard, and check people!

I'm not usually this negative... but some of these guys have no business being in the NHL. None.
Are you skitzophrenic or something? Nobody has claimed Orr, Rismiller, or Byers to play a top 6 role. So let's relax. It's pretty obvious the talent analysis is done per the players role on the club. Orr has improved some of the aspects of his game, yes. But he still is a scratch or some nights on the 4th line. Rismiller was invisibile and belongs no where on this team from what I saw. Voros deserves a spot if he continues playing the way he played during the last game, and that spot isn't on the top 6 rather it's on the 4th line. So let's unbunch the panties you're wearing, and end the spinning you seem to be doing.
