That's nice. It has nothing to do with what I said. We don't have five that scored 20 goals last year. We have two. We only have five (in you scenario- dumping Ales) that have ever scored 20. I bet that's near the bottom of the NHL.

If Grier scores 20 I'll be shocked. I don't think we're getting the 15 goals Kotalik had from our 4th line center.

He scored more goals per game than anyone on the team except Satan, Dumont, and Briere. If he doesn't get hurt, he scores 19 or 20. He has the best snap shot on the Sabres, period.

And that's an asset that we need, especially with the amount of penalties that are going to be called. Kotalik has become the most underrated Sabre and I'm not sure why.
