Many high end players dont go banging players all over the ice, rather concentrate on setting up players.

I agree that Silk was a favourite of Cull and the team, because he is a local area kid. Silk is a great kid, but just needs to smarten up on the ice.
Kantor was not brought in as a center to start...he was wing. Your first three centers after Kantor arrives was Sgarbossa, MC and McDonald. When McDonald was out they moved several palyers in and out as center of the 3rd line. Geez, even Silk and Schoenmakers were played in center of the 3rd line to be given extra time.
Kantor saw very limited time at center ast year, but down the stretch saw more.

To reply to another comment on here, agree...Kantor and Silk take stupid untimely penalties and are punsihed by staying on the ice and given more to make up for the ice they missed while in the box. These are the guys wearing the letters yet they can do no wrong.

Kantor - he is a liability as a center. He does not pass even when players are wide open. I like his physical play but most of the time he takes himself so far out of the play running around trying to kill someone.
