I remember we had hopes for Pitlick becoming a Ryan Kesler like player for us. Well he isn't even close to what kind of a player Kesler was at the same age. He is miles away from being any form of a scoring threat at any sort of pro level.

You can say that neither Rajala or Cornet have any chance at being NHLers for this team, well I say at this point they have as much a chance as Pitlick/Hamilton. At least they have both shown that they can score at a pro level. Something the other two haven't even had a sniff at.
Pitlick has actually played extremely well. Say what you want about the lack of points, his play has signaled he may have a chance.

From watching him play in OKC its apparent the bounces arent going his way but he looks impressive in the pro game, still a shot at being a 3rd line checking forward
