you're comparing a Barnaby with 12+ minutes of ice time to Lacouture with 6-8 minutes of ice time (with PK time). So yes, in that respect, Barnaby is more useful, but I'm talking about who's going to be on that fourth line.
Signin' mentions him on a line with Holik, et al, but that hasn't been seen in preseason and it seems as though Simon may have the inside track on that one. And this isn't an opinion coming from me as to who should be on that line, it's me guessing what Sather will do.
Personally I wouldn't hate Barnaby being on a line with Holik and Lundmark and Messier centering Lacouture and Petro, but Simon is here and that's why I've left Matty out.
As for stupid penalties...they're palentiful. Everytime that guy goes to the box you can see the expression on his face (a trademark of his), complaining about the call - which is typically after a stupid penalty.
Would I make that trade? If I'm on a team that has normal payroll contstraints, want to get younger, a bit faster, needed help on the PK, and needed a fourth liner? I may think about it.
