Like whom Gary? Unless that player plays a really physical game, he's not going to get ice time.

You're right, the RSL is a highly defense oriented league. I am surprised he's doing so well honestly. The thing is, in the NHL today, I can't think of a coach that doesn't require two way play from a foward. That's mainly what I was getting at. I do not deny his offensive skill at all, but his two way game for sure.

More and more you've seen coaches like Andy Murray or Larry Robinson at the helm; coaches who require everything out of their skilled players when that is not necessarily their strong point.

I often times wonder whether or not Luc or Brett Hull could make it as a player breaking in today. If you want to look at why the league is so low scoring, look no further than the people who are in charge.
