Dawgbone,

I agree with you that Rita is not going to be an offensive saviour. There's no doubt that his offensive skills are simply not as good as advertised. I believe he telegraphs his shot too much, and that's why he may not be a big scorer in the NHL.

However, I cannot understand where this myth comes from that Rita is good defensivly. Where? How? When did this happen? Last I checked he was still terrible defensivly. And I just saw like, 4 road runners games this month! Rita is NOT very good defensivly, in fact I'd say he's still well below average.

If you want to look at a player who can come in, energize the team, score a few goals, and bring good work ethic and maybe even some defensive play, ignore Rita. He won't bring that. Call up SALMELAINNEN . I've seen that kid play too long in Edmonton. He is NHL ready right now. Very, very nice little player. Dump off Brad Isbister at the nearest street corner and play Salmelainnen.
