All I want is someone that KNOWS how to put the puck in the net. Though, I definately agree with you about the puck carrier issues.
I am 100% certain that we could get 6 guys more that "knows how to put the puck in the net", and wouldn't become much better if they were like Skinner/Gabby-type's.

Our problem is not that we can't put the puck in the net. You could have 2x the shot of Brett Hull in his prime, if you attack against a collected collapsed 5 man box these days someone will get a stick on your stick before the shot goes off anyway. We need guys who can make plays with the puck. Someone who is creative with the puck heading up ice.
