Strongly disagree. Stylistically, the players did not mesh well with Espo and he had begun losing a step with age. Once Hodge came over, it blended better with Espo's style, but Hodge had really begun to lose his step. the rest of the team did not seem to understand just how to feed Phil in front of the net anywhere near the amount Hodge/Cashman in their primes did. Hodge/Cashman IMO, always had more of an impact on Espo's numbers than Orr.
