. He's like a PA Parenteau.. good player who can put up points given the chance but will never really be on a good team because neither of them can play bottom 6 roles and neither of them are good enough as a top 6 player on a good team.
Lombardi on the other hand has always been a bottom six player until he went to PHX and he was great in that role. I'm not going to write him off because he wasn't the same after missing an entire year plus a good chunk of that comeback year as well.
Burke has said that the league has changed to a top 8/9 and a bottom 3/4. Lombardi may have been better for a bottom 6 role in the past, but now the league has changed apparently and I would rather have MacArthur playing hands down.
