Fair enough, although I wasn't suggesting trading one of them for him. We need depth and right now, both those guys being in our top six is an issue given we have no obvious person who can step in one one of our top six is hurt.

And I'd argue, neither of them is exactly gritty either. Both have a tendency to level someone once every 15 games, but other than that, are not much different than Zherdev.
