People make fun of Tom Pyatt's sub-par offence ast the NHL level, but he is MILES ahead of Ryan White offensively. White has 8 points in 28 games in HAMILTON, never mind the NHL, while Pyatt was not far from PPG last year in Hamilton.

As I thought before he was brought up, Ryan White proved to be of VERY marginal NHL calibre.

In fact, I would like to see more of Enqvist than White right now. Enqvist is a good faceoff man and has much better defensive instincts and at least as much offensive skill if not more than White.
1. Anybody is more offensive than Pyatt
2. White is not that slow and everybody enjoy the work of Mathieu Darche who is slower than White. It's not a question of speed here but heart, toughness and hard working
