Plus he never plays more than 60 games a year and it is much easier to replace someone like him then getting a 2nd line scorer. I think his lack of speed hurts him in the new NHL as well. Remember, he was on NJ, the ultimate clutch and grab team.

Either way, thanks for all the info on Recchi. I dont want to start any debates on anything, just looking for info.
we were getting good production from the Sim/Richards/Handzus combo when that was what we were going with. we've had a LOT of injuries. getting good/consistent secondary scoring when that is going on is going to be tough. don't judge our team offense until we're healthy...
