Yeah but Lisin isn't a "great player".
There is no way he will be a "great player" in camp. It doesn't work like that, its not like someone with potential suddenly wakes up one morning and have fullfilled it.
However, Lisin do have potential, he do have some speed and is very shifty. He is half smart with the puck and can fire it.
If he is gooing to be of any value for us we got to be patient with him though,
him time. He is ready for that.
I like Lisin, and I've seen pretty much of him. Probably 15 full games before he made the NHL even...
But what I does not like is if we bring in him just to be a lotteryticket, because as such he will be useless. If we develop him properly for 2-3 years then he will start paying off. Are we prepaired to do that?
