bobbyr, your problem is that you seem to be saying that the quality of Erskine's defense is almost irrelevant because he is the only guy that can bring the pain. against playoff level competition while playing top 4 minutes and assignments, his lack of game gives up more than his physical play and intimidation and fighting ability brings. its a net loss.
square peg/round hole. you are trying to stuff a 5 into the place for a 4 and against poor or marginal opposition it works fine. against playoff completion he gets used up.
if you want a top 4 that hurts people and scares people, beat the drum for McPhee to get one. Erskine aint it.
sounds to me like you would rather have Erskine playing over his head than an actual 4 that doesn't play the style you want.
