Laraque puts those passes in a perfect place... providing an Oiler is there. They are always out of the defenders reach to an open area of the ice.
I agree, although I think Izzy's been doing some pretty fine work playing with BG too. It's too bad he isn't a centre, then it could be Torres/Izzy/BG.

They need somebody with hands on BG's line, I think, is what it boils down to - but BG will never replace Dvorak or Hemsky on the top 2. What about putting York between Laraque and Torres?
