BUT WE LACK a good RS C who can win draws in the right situations amd do other things like PKs.or add difference making creative offense.

Better to have a 50/50 battle on the wall than lose draws out to the point cleanly.

Those adjustments alone would give us a chance to win a battle and clear the puck.

Problem is Olive Oyl is too weak to tie up his guy and kick the puck etc.
