And, a guy like Bergie, will still bring something else to the table during those goal droughts. Parrish brought little else than that presence in front of the net. Not to discount the value of that, but he was slow and so not a great backchecker, was always in front of the net so not a great forechecker, and was not adept at setting his linemates up. I would rather focus on a faster, more agressive team like we seem to have now.
