Hecht would likely play opposite Pominville, centered by Hodgson or Grigorenko. He'd do the dirty work for those guys, and, if playing with Grigorenko, cover up for some of the inevitable defensive errors from Grigs. Also, I don't think we should get too wrapped up in phrases like "top-6." Ruff doesn't have a top-6, he has a top-9 and he'll spread out the ice time among them, especially in a condensed season.

Given the complete dearth of forwards with much defensive ability and that the alternative is probably signing nobody thereby allowing Porter or Adam to step into the lineup, I'm surprised there are so many opposed to signing Hecht on a one-year deal.
