Those times when Volpatti looked great, was when Hendricks was his center

Hendricks has more skills than Volpatti sure but in 4th line TOI, it should not be a big difference maker, assuming the coach wants energy and hitting of course.

What will be a difference maker though, is hitting. I think Volpatti is a much more willing and able hitter. While Oates has Fehr Ward or even a Wilson on 4, it is not a scoring line. It's why Torts benched Richards. Skill on 4 is often wasted, especially paying for it as a GM.

And lord knows he has enough skill and money tied into RW, which I think hurts our 4th lines "energy". Stick a goal scorer with them and what does he bring to it. Chicken Little. He then needs an assist guy.

There is not much money left to upgrade LW at this point and all signs point to George waving bye to Hendy to save money.
