yep. hitting alone is not enough. half the AHL can play 4th line and europe is full of players who could play 4th line as well. gator needs to add something to his game in the NHL. and i'm sure he will do that. but he doesn't belong to an injury free NHL team at the moment. i hope he can return next season and adds more scoring. i can see him being a useful 3rd line grinder with decent scoring in the future. just not now.

and yes, leino is no NHLer either.
