Skill will only take you so far. There should be no free rides, even for former first-round picks.
From what I read here ( because I haven't paid close attention to Rita's games with Edmonton) it seems that Rita is going through the same up and down lack of consistency in his NHL Play that Ponikarovsky went through for a couple of years in Toronto.
I wouldn't write Rita off yet.
I would take him to Toronto, if you guys want to dump him.
