If Betts is that good...
why does he and Greg Moore and McLennan come for Simon? Simon was nice, but was a third liner, and Calgary gives up a guy as good as an NHLer (Ortmeyer) defensively, but even better offensively. Plus a decent college prospect, who may not turn out to be anything much, but it's still a decent return.
Larry, I do agree, but the guy just doesn't have great hands. He's meant to do a lot of simple things, or at least that's what I saw. There's nothing much to his shot or offensive game. Just plain vanilla. I won't argue one bit on the kid's heart, determination and ability defensively. And to be a third liner, you'd want about 10-15 goals out of a guy, and I don't see that in Ortmeyer. But then again, on this Rangers team where a guy who may score 10-15 goals on that line would suck defensively, one may wish to go with Ortmeyer.
