So far all I see is that he's slightly better than Malholtra defensively but complete inept at scoring and costs us 5-6 times as much money
Sammy Pahlsson is not a Malhotra type player, he's a former Selke award winner. I have nothing against Manny, but he couldn't sniff an award in a career year. Pahlsson did not have a good year, but he also played on a completely inconsistent line that had no real definition. They didn't use his line as a shut-down line as much as they should have.
