I never said Antropov is worthless, I just don't think for this franchise he is a fit anymore for what they have him here to do. I agree with what you say about his defensive play, I like that part of his game. In fact that is what I was hoping, and not getting, from Olli as well ( solid defensive play with some decent offense production thrown in ).
On this team, Antropov and Jokinen are here and expected by management to be top six forwards based on what this team is paying them ( they are the 2nd and 4th highest paid forwards on the team ) , and put up numbers accordingly. If they are to be 3rd line and 4th line players then they are both being over paid. On a already set playoff team then sure they can be solid 3rd liners to help bring a team a cup, but not on this team. We need more out of them, and if all they can be are 3rd liners or 4th liners, then pay them accordingly, or replace them with people that are 2nd line or 1st line players.
