I've seen enough of Pitlick to think he can be a good 4th liner. If the guy can bring energy and size, but has enough skill to make/give a pass and keep up with the rest of the line then that's great.
Looking at Hamilton, don't defensive forwards take longer to develop? If so, we shouldn't be worried about this guy. If like Pitlick he can some day slot in as a call up/4th line PK guy then i'm happy with that.
Martindale is a lost cause at this point. He was drafted as a scoring center, but he sucks and isn't producing. I don't even expect to see him as an AHL regular.
I find it very unfair that you are writing off Martindale when he has more points than Hamilton does in less games. He has been injured for the last 8 games or so, so it's not like he's had a huge opportunity to show what he has unlike Hamilton who has had maybe 2 good games all year long. IMO they are very much in the same boat except Martindale is more skilled but not as fleet of food.
