Korpi can play all forwards positions. He can play on a top 2 line and on a bottom 2 line stylewise. He definitly had some potential to develop more, and even if everything didn't connect offensivly last season some experience definitly could have helped in that department.

In the end we look like we gave away Korpikoski for a guy who have to "suprise" in camp just to squez into our top 9 or he will be gone.

WTF?

Because in Korps, you get an average, run of the mill player that you can always sign for a million or two in the summer.

But if Lisin develops to his full potential, he becomes a star winger for us. It's a classic trade of a safe player for a high-risk, high-return player.
