I'm well aware of what Lappy brings to the table. While I haven't seen him much, I do read a ton, and everything I've read corroborates what you say.

Still, sounds an awful lot like Darcy Tucker for most of his career, except Tucker was a 40-point player almost every season. See? Why not have both?

Your points about McCarty and Deadmarsh are well-made. And I fully agree. McCarty was a real life 3rd/usually 4th liner yet he keeps getting picked to play on ATD 4th lines. Deadmarsh can do everything he does, PLUS he's a much better player at the basic skills of hockey. This is exactly what I'm saying about Laperriere vs. guys like Horeck, Tucker, or Cotton.
