Certainly not, RNH wouldn't be able to adapt to that role, I'm talking about other skilled guys who would be able to adapt to that role... RNH when he was 17 if I were picking the team would have been either the 2nd or 3rd line center. I have a different philosophy then the one HC employs. 3 scoring lines and plus a line that is equally skilled more or less, but are more polished in all 3 zones...The days of pounding teams into submission are over... over. And the sooner HC gets that through its thick scull, the better for us all.
