Yeah, you could make a case for the Seto/Kopitar thing though. I like Setoguchi, but that whole situation bugs me a little bit.
I agree. Hindsight is always 20/20. But at the time Michalek was the right pick. He jumped in there and scored in his first game. Then got injured for the rest of the season.
Our team is deep this year so its hard to find ice-time on the PP for him. Thornton, Marleau, Gooch, Clowe, Pavalski, Cheechoo, Boyle, Blake, Erhoff, Vlasic.
Where do you put him?
He's not the sniper like Cheech, Marleau, or Gooch. He doesn't stand in front of the net like Clowe or Cheech. Our D mans the point. And Thornton is Thornton.
