Look, Ott has his place, but it's on the 3rd line taking defensive zone draws and getting PK time. That's it. Any upward mobility they've put on Ott has been met with temporary success.

The guy takes tons of stupid penalties, can't shoot, can't pass, isn't that tough honestly, and I'm just curious why so many people here swoon over him. It's like a total 180 going from the Dallas board to this board reading opinions on Ott. Grass is greener, I think.
