For all his skating/running around, Sjopstrom's defensive positioning at ES is questionable at times...and his offense has been an absolute zero for over a year...That being said, his PK ability is valuable...The point is, all of these guys are flawed and NONE of them deserve to play every night..I'm not championing any of these guys but Renney needs to find a way to encoproarate his black aces and rotate these guys in (based on Opponents) for optimum results....Getting 1 point every 20 games from Sjostrom (even when he averaged 13-14 minutes a night) and letting him skate no matter what (ditto for Orr) is not optimum results..
