All have outscored Fisher since being traded...but...supposedly, the X-factor for Fisher is in big games\playoff situations. I don't really care if Fisher gets outscored by 20 goals by the other three in the regular season, as long as he's the one doing the scoring in the playoffs.
but thats exactly the point. Poile wanted more of what we have, ie defensively responsible centers who can nonetheless be a threat to score or be on a line that is a threat to score.

As much as this is going to send some here into total apoplexy, I think its pretty obvious that poile wants three david legwands.

so far, given where we seem to be headed as far as the standings, I'll give the poile Plan a solid "B", with a chance to upgrade that in the postseason.
