Red herring.....NHL performance was never part of this thread. But even if it was, you contradict yourself.
How can NHL cast-off Dallman be "significantly better" than NHL regulars Brunner, Cervenka, etc? You can't have it both ways.

I'm correct.

Cervenka has the diversified skillset to adapt to an NHL top 6 role. How well he adapts has yet to be determined.
Kane simply did not have the skill-set to adapt....or at least not without changing the fundamental basis of his game. It would be the equivalent of Winnipeg signing Danis Zaripov for a checking role. Sometimes it's painfully obvious things won't work out no matter how much time you give a player.

Mr Kanadensisk, we know these things by watching players......not by stat counting.
