If you’re building a 4th line, who do you want?
The major reason I went with Vaive was for him to be my 2nd unit PP net presence. Yes Secord had that 1 massive season where he was 1st in PP goals, but outside of that he only has 2 other seasons in double digit PP goals. Vaive has a lot more consistency with 7 seasons of double digit PP goals and several other 8-9 seasons.

there were also numerous quotes talking about Vaive parking himself infront of the net etc..
