i think there is an overall positive in having more contributers rather than fewer. gaborik killing penalties does nothing but make him more tired. we are a team full of penalty killers, no need for gaby playing pk.

guys get tired. playing lisin 5 minutes is stupid. period. hes every bit as capable as higgins or kotalik.

i would do what another here stated. lisin needs to be on the pp not the pk.

offensive talent doesnt belong killing penalties. he needs to use his speed going forward not backing up.

torts isnt using him properly. its on him. hes the boss and hes making a mistake.
Completely disagree. Keeping the puck out of your net on the PK is not all about sacrificing the body and mucking the corners. It's about putting pressure on your opponent all over the ice and forcing them to make quick decisions/plays with the puck and hopefully causing them to make mistakes. Now, given Gaborik's history of fragility, I can understand why you'd want him on the bench during the PK. But to minimize his (and other similar player's) contribution to it is flat out wrong.
