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 was one of the team's best players in the last playoffs. He has not had a lot of luck this year but has played well in many games.
I do agree that his offense has been lacking. But otherwise I think he has shown a lot of potential to be an NHL'er.
