#2 What they really need to Garrison to learn how to shoot Right, but that's not gonna happen so they need to find a RS Dman who has a bomb but 5 on 5 is more of a stay at home defensive dman.
The point of Malhotra was to take a decent load of the defensive match ups so Kesler could focus on his offensive numbers.
Had Kesler and Malhotra not been injured we'd be a 2nd line winger away from a powerhouse. On paper.
The amount Malhotra is undervalued here is criminal. You bet your sweet ass Gillis would take a serious run at a Malhotra pre-injury over almost any other player at the deadline this year, if he existed.
