I just think he's horrible. His skating is some of the worst I've seen, he's completely useless on defense, as in, a traffic cone would be a better option. Joe Vitale FLEW by him. Yes, Pittsburgh's 4th liner Joe Vitale. I guess he doesn't do that much damage at forward, but I didn't see him forechecking particularly well either. I don't want useless goons on this team. Getting rid of Rupp (even though he used to be serviceable,) was a good start. We need more Daroll Powe's on the fourth line. And less Bickel.
