I can see where you can say he's the 'weakest link' talent wise, but in terms of what the team needs to achieve, I don't think he's among the top five weakest players. The team's first and foremost objective needs to be team unity and implementing a system. To implement a system, system players are needed. Dackell is a system player. Players that hurt systems are: Perreault, Audette, Brisebois (somewhat), Kilger, Juneau (last year's version), Ribeiro, Dykhuis (last year's version).
