Bubba, Goldham was a LH shot.

I need to be more sold on Rousseau's defensive ability before thinking of him as a good glue guy, rather than a merely passable one.

That was my mindset going in, I wanted stray away from the traditional way things are done.
yeah, there are definitely guys pigeonholed into being third liners who are better offensively than a lot of the grinders often found on scoring lines in this thing.

Tocchet was much better in the corners too. Dino wasn't that much of a corners guy, more of a guy who would do whatever it takes in front of the net. Dino is much better offensively though.
