POS. None of those things.

Really bad comparison

I've watched 6 or 7 Barons games where Pitlick has gotten zero points but his line dominates time of possession, he hits hard forechecks and doesn't allow the other teams a sniff.

While getting lots of good shots.

He looks better than most on the team.
These comments could be said of Pitlick LAST YEAR too - save for a few games in the Barons playoffs (didn't watch many). As I mentioned a year ago, he can look like Hemmer out there with his speed and skill with the puck. Unfortunately, it's all for naught because he has zero finishing ability and zero idea what to do with the puck near the net. He'll be an NHL player, but most likely a 3rd crash and banger grinder like Ryan Jones. IMO he should have been left in the WHL to build up his offensive game. I also think Lander was rushed too. He'll never get the offensive opportunities he would on a different team.

While I've had a full-on hate for Plante and Hamilton, I liked Hamilton's game and goal tonight. A dozne games like that and I might change my tune about him.
