This is exactly the sort of player that a last-place team should be taking a look at bringing in and trying to develop. Big wingers who can pot 15-20 goals are not exactly easy to find.

You kinda have to wonder why they didn't take him of Nashville in the Grebeshkov deal ... would have made that trade look a lot better to the fanbase in Edmonton.

Lisin is garbage. Awful hockey player.
Is Ryan Jones on waivers?
