For a guy that once scored 14 goals in a season, he sure does like to pass up great shooting positions.
But he doesn't throw huge hits and thus is "soft". And he is "lazy" because he can glide faster than Wallin and Ward can skate at full speed. And he'll make a couple horrible giveaways for every fifty great passes he makes, and is thus a "giveaway machine." I suggest trading him to make room for a generic physical defensive defenseman.

Oh, and yeah...what an absolutely horrific third period Pitkanen had. Doesn't he know that every point counts? That one point he got us could hurt us in the draft lottery. **** him.
