His lack of grit and his stone hands are what make him a 3rd liner.
My post said that in a slower league he would be a star. In a faster league, you have to complete your moves with less time. So, it is not his speed (because I agree, he can skate) that makes a 3rd line filler, it is his lack of ability to complete his plays at NHL speed that relegates him to either a simple fore-checking role.

Regarding Bulis requesting or demanding a more offensive role on the team....if it was a request, I may have given him a shot, then adjust his role immediately according to how he responds. If it was a demand, I would have made him watch the games from the pressbox, or from home. He has not gained the right to demand anything.

Personally, I have had it with him.
