Hamerlik is the best offensively of the bunch.

Actually, I see Aucoin as our number 4. He did play those insane minutes. But, before Janne N came along, Aucoin was the only quality rightside dman we had. So, he could double shifted.

As far as offense, I think Janne N is a much more dynamic player than Hamrlik, and Aucoin is more of a shooter than Hamrlik. Hamrlik's offensive abilities get a little overrrated.

Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
