I just think the likes of ranford, cousins and akeson should be ranked higher then holmstrom, read and sestito because they have much higher ceilings but that thats not to belittle sestito and the others after all even role players/4th liners have a place on every team in the league. i guess just agree to disagree.
Fair enough. Maybe I'm just a Sestito fanboy. I'm really hoping he takes Shelley's spot as the muscle but also can be a more complete player. I'd prefer Sestito over Rinaldo and Shelley every day of the week if the Flyers are going to use one as a 4th line enforcer type player (which my guess is they will).
