Lappy brings speed, hitting and a true pesty attitude that gets under the skin and throws off some opposing players, adds energy and draws penalties. He goes into corners, he scoops out pucks, he upsets apple carts and has the sense and reaction time to adapt to a high tempo game. An agitator of the first order, with the skating and positional hockey sense to play well int he most competitive of games.

Somehow a *beep* like Darren McCarty is ATD worthy and a travesty that he was add/dropped and a guy like Lappy isn't even Double-A worthy? I think maybe you just haven't watched Lappy much, which is possible since he played most of his career for the little-watched Kings (I'm a huge Sharks fan and Kariya&Hebert Mighty Duck liker so saw many West coast time zone California games on cable in the nineties.

But I think Deadmarsh would do just fine in an ATD context as a fourth liner.

Judgements vary.

If there's ever a gap between drafts I'd like to do a 'guys drafted in the ATD who have no place on those teams' list.

Until then, good day.
