And, btw, Pitkanen is having a nice NHL career right now...
I'm not commenting on the skill necessarily ..I'm basically making the analogy in a tongue and cheek manner that for some reason he won't pan out here..not that he doesn't have potential like all the other ones I mentioned. And yes I'm aware Pitkanen has become a good D man who plays hard minutes..I didn't want to trade him and we got Smyth for a year and Lupul ..they were short-lived help. However, Pitkanen became goat boy on the team and it wasn't going away...I'm surprised Coburn has redeemed himself and luckily b/c he's a good D man yet people still want to trade him.
