"He may not be a top six forward." Understatement of the year. He isn't a top six forward. He is a 4th line grinder.
I firmly believe Gator will top out at 18ish goals. I know others disagree, but his offensive IQ is abysmal and his shot isn't even good. Franzen is lazy, but he has the talent to score goals. Working hard and not having the talent does not equal success. You value the fact that he works hard, but his hard work doesn't translate into success.
Darren Helm is the best example. Works his *** off when he is on the ice and it would take an act from every God ever invented for him to put up 15-20 goals in one season.
Playing Gator on the top line reeks of organizational hubris. "We are the Red Wings and we can make anything work."
No amount of lotion and exfoliation could ever make Darren Helm's hands soft hah
