Nonsense. He's Randy Jones. Don't sugarcoat it for our sake.

And we have plenty of top 9 call-ups to choose from.

Goaltending is not the most important position in the NHL. All you need to do is not have crap goaltending to be successful as long as you have the roster to counter it. Unfortunately, Bryzgalov is the ultimate crap goaltend---I mean Leighton. Oh, whatever, same thing.

To believe that Schenn and Couturier could be 40-50 point forwards next season is not a "big" step. Realistically though, we don't really need both of them to be offensively successful; only one of them really.

Overrated and old.
