offensively, enver lisin is the 2nd most talented player on this team. no question.

hes probably our fastest skater.

hes our 2nd most dangerous player one on one and not far behind gaborik.

he can dangle and he can get on your hip and blow by you.

hes our 2nd most creative player behind mg.

hes a finisher. he has a very good shot.

other than mg, hes the only other player that can make a defense back off and respect due to his filthy speed.

having said that, if hes played anywhere but the top 3 lines, hell be wasted. he must play with offensively skilled players in order to contribute.

if torts gives him time with gaborik, i will predict lisin will go off and score goals for us. if he plays with drury same and if he gets a chance with arty, i predict we will see chemistry with those two.

if torts puts him with stiffs and limits his ice time, hell fail. period.

some guys are offensively gifted. lisin is one. he young and he has worked hard on his own zone game, but hes still our second most lethal weapon and needs to be used as such. torts needs to tell him, be aware defensively but most important, attack and create.

if given the chance, he will create scoring chances and be on the scoreboard consistently.
