I still think that we could use more of a Ryan White, yes he might be a little less good in defensive than Pyatt, but he brings a hole lot more to the table!
Notice the word in bold. Pyatt > Hole
The 4th line isn't supposed to score anyways. Psh, what do you expect? 20 goal scorers on the 4th line? Pyatt's job on this team is to provide stability through defense so that our performers can go out and provide stability through offense. Maybe not the most glamorous job in the world for Pyatt but it pays the bills and clearly, IT WORKS! Why mess with something when the team is functioning perfectly?

You're always the one defending the players who get bashed or are underappreciated.
I have no idea why. I guess I just see different parts of the game than a lot of people. I tend to pay attention to the little things. The non flashy things. Seems a lot of people look past that kind of thing, IMO.

I like lots of players who are loved too, I just dont feel the need to defend them as much.

I think we all do.

Like Don Cherry said about Rickard Wallin : he doesn't hit, he doesn't fight, he doesn't score....
True, and anyone can play on the PP too -- doesn't mean it'll be effective.

Just throwing some appreciation out for the kid.
I'm a huge Pyatt fan too. He's got excellent defensive skills. He uses them very well against very skilled opponents. He did all playoffs and season long last year.

Only thing I wish for him is to build his offensive side. It will take time. But at least he's got tremendous defensive talent to back him up and feel safer when trying new things on the rush. Most players only focus on their offensive skills and ignore their defense and can't make it. Others are more defensive mind and can't make it. Pyatt's got one facet of the game pin and plays it incredibly well and efficiently. All he needs his more time for his offensive skills. I see him cracking at least a 2nd line spot in a couple seasons, not too many though, if he masters more offensive skills.
