Zanon is one of our most consistent players and is a fine #5 or #6 defenseman. He would be an excellent #7 defenseman. He's a shot blocking machine and pretty decent positionally (although he does tend to get too far out of position in order to block the shot). He's also very tough and gives a lot of effort. All teams need players like that in order to succeed.
I dont think my friends over at Lifeway would approve.
I still remember back about 10 years ago the editors at The Hartford Courant were obviously not thinking when they put the headline "Satan Wins It" across the top of the sports section in bold letters.
Miroslav Satan had scored an overtime goal the previous night to beat the Whalers.
I'd take Kessel and a 1st for Suter in a heartbeat...
Koistinen can definitely play everyday for us, he works better with Zidlicky, and he's better on the power play. Kessel should be a good second line player for years to come. Only issue for me is how long Kessel's contract is and could we/would we resign him?
girardi is a good young defenceman, bourret is projected to be a top two line talent with a lot of grit and the first speaks for itself.....would love to get suter on broadway.....a good american defenceman...good stuff
