Yeah I think we have too many 'defensive forwards' as it is. Antro is a defensive forward. Burmi is a defensive forward. Olli is now suddenly a 'defensive positional forward'. Whoever happens to be on the 4th line on any given night is a 'gritty defensive forward'.

I'd prefer if we left the majority of the defending in the hands of the defensemen, spent more time in the opposing end, and scored more than 2.5 goals per game (while allowing 3.0).

Winnipeg is 19th in the league for 'shots for'. If you take out Evander Kane, who leads the entire league in shots with 98, that stat shows how few opportunities this team produces.

Antro is not a bad player. I just don't think it's what this team really needs right now, we need a forward with a different skill set.
