After following Robi in Atlanta and in the Swiss League, I think you all will be pleasantly surprised with how much his game has improved since his first stint in Nashville.
BTW, I'm looking forward to my first season as a Nashville Predators fan.....guess I should change my username, huh?
Being a Pens fan, and having seen both of them play for the Pens and/or Baby Pens and Robitaille with ATL and Nashville, I can tell you that Beech is much more of a playmaker than Robitaille. Beech has good vision and good passing skills. He's not a goal scoring center, he's a true playmaking center.
I also think he takes Robitaille in Hockey Sense and playing under control (except for the stupid slashing penaly that Beech will take every 3rd game).
