completely incorrect with respect to my opinion. Betts doesn't hit, he's terrible offensively (can't score, can't cycle to sustain pressure), his faceoff % is 50% so that doesn't help, he skates in syrup. He's done.

The only thing he brings right now is PK and he's not even terrfic at that. Their PK is dead in the middle so it's not as if they are at the top of the pack and he's been an incredible PKer and faceoff guy. You don't need a 4th liner that scores but one that can change momentum or have a possible impact on a game would be nice. I just don't see him adding any value at this point or at least what some others can't do cheaper with more potential upside in other areas. They need to turn the page with him.
