Kariya and Arnott were vets when Trotz coached them. They already had the reputations as scorers.
The problem is if youre going to be a floater, you had better score 25 to 30 goals because you will probably be responsible for several goals against as well.
I dont know that we have had anyone other than Rads who would have been a 25 to30 goal scorer if not for Trotz. If you only have 20 goal talent, you better play at least some defense
