Halpern's speed makes people like him, other than that, he brings nothing. We have guys who can take faceoffs. We have guys who can penalty kill. We need guys with grit and we need guys with a little scoring ability (ANY????) on those bottom lines.
He is credited for being a strong defensive player; like Boyle. But he can skate at a high level which gets him into good scoring areas, something BB cannot do. Neither has done anything offensively but Halp has been involved in more good scoring opps. Halp is so much better with the puck it's not even funny in all three zones. He just hasn't been able to finish; like the rest of the team. Boyle isn't even getting good scoring chances. That line had a few last night; but it was JT and CK working together, leaving the black hole to stand and watch.
