I wont even mention the name of that other guy that you shilled for early in the season. You know, the guy who is perhaps the dumbest hockey player I've ever seen and has a perpetual seat in the pressbox, even with all these injuries.
blowzy is a fine 3rd pair guy who eats lots of minutes but produces next to nothing offensively. hes overpaid, soft as charmin and cant skate a lick, but again, as a 3rd pair guy, hes "
on a good team, hes nothing more than a 3rd pair guy. on this team, hes one of out top dmen.
dubi is fine as a 3rd line centerman or wing. going 20/20 is about right for him. hes got perhaps 25/25 potential if he plays top 6 minutes and pp- not that great btw. if hes on the 3rd line with no pp time, hes a 15/15 guy tops. his hockey iq is somewhere between jody shelley and a houseplant. in other words, im not impressed with his natural hockey iq. unlike lisin, who can create with nothing more than speed, dubi isnt as fortunate. he lacks top end speed, doesnt shoot it particularly well nor does he create much for others. alot of his goals are near the net on rebounds and garbage, nothing wrong with that mind you but its true and with the minutes he gets, i would expect him to be more productive. hes a 3rd liner on a below average team. nothing more.
as for the guy who we wont mention, hes been shafted by torts. im certainly not the only one who realizes that he couldnt be worse than pap, locke, or a few other roster guys who make alot more and play alot more.
when you are not a torts guy- irrespective of your ability or not, you arent gonna play. thats pretty obvious to me and would be to you too if you could overcome bias.
even the most arden haters would likely admit that the ef job torts has done on this guy is both unwarranted and surprising. given all the injuries, and now even playing aaron voros- the least talented player on the team- proves that its not his lack of talent/hockey iq thats keeping him in a suit but more likely a personal thing between the two of them. everytime he played after hes was waived, he made few mistakes and was skating hard and getting shots on net inspite of the fact that he was pretty much told he wansnt wanted.
i would point out that everyones wet dream, erik christensen has 6 goals in 54 games played this year- playing exclusively with offensive players. the same number of goals that other guy scored when he still played for the nyr.
