we agree.

i said the same thing with lisin. kotalik not so much as i wasnt always sold on his work ethic.

there can be room for players who are offensive by nature. what you give up on the defensive side you hopefully makeup with good 2 way linemates and the production this player provides.

and again, i agree that this team sorely needs a dose of offense. we lack players who can push back defenses and create space while carrying the puck. sometimes you have to create via skating, passing and speed.

dump and chase only goes so far.
