I'd rather a guy who doesn't have to be in the dirty areas to unleash a shot that can help us way more. Ponikarovsky is another guy that would have to rely heavily on either Sid or Geno to score. Not somebody who can create scoring chances on his own.

I believe THAT is what's missing from our roster.
Unfortunately, that will cost more than they can come up with or be willing to give up what is needed to get that player.
