I think that as a rookie a role player like Lapierre could have a tougher time to adapt and be more enclined to take penalties because he would want to do too much.

What we need is a sniper who can shake Ward's confidence, give some extra munitions to the Habs and some questions to Laviolette....The only thing we can ask to Kosty is to create good chances, win his 1 on 1 and....score if you can. I believe what we can ask of Lappy could be too much in that environnement. Play well defensively, great forechecking, in your face type of game, a little offense wouldn't hurt.....Don't get me wrong I love Lapierre, he'll be tremendous for us, I wouldn't even mind if Gainey goes with him, but we need more Kosty sniper attributes.
