So in this "rumoured" trade we trade our goalie and a decent prospect for two guys who walk next summer? Sounds brilliant, fits right in with "building through the draft" motto that our GM has preached since arriving.
Always lost most of his battle one on one....from day one
Never had an NHL shot...so he won't get one even if he "bounce back"
Never been good defensively, so he won't even if he "bounce back"
Still won't be able to push, hit, intimidate, go throught any players.
Still won't have the necessary speed useful to every single small playesr in the NHL Still gonna be the 233th smaller center in the NHL (out of 234)
Most poeple think that if he get a couple of points more, he will be a good player.
But never forget, his spot (centering the offensive line with less defensive duties) is the one for Galchenyuk!! That will never change!!
sigh.. the amount of "MTL" on that list is like ugh... upsetting.
True though 4 out of 5 do play physical enough. And I'm counting Gionta in that list. Even if there are limits to what a body can do, we can't say that they are small AND non-physical. Gallagher, Dumont, Bouillon and Gionta are doing the job. The problem is...is it still too many based on what I mentioned...as far as limitations are concerned. One thing though....Bouillon is closer to the door...so is Gionta and Dumont still haven't made it officially yet.
