Fellow Canucks fans overrating this guy big time. He's capable of 4-5 minutes a night and is usually hemmed in his own zone for most of it. He has no hockey sense whatsoever, his redeeming point is he will throw the body and fight. This is a fringe NHL 4th liner, nothing more, nothing less.

you're underrating him, he was a prototypical fourth liner and not as bad defensively as you think, perfect role player

Which is why he was waived from a team needing 4th liners and values defensively responsible players? "Perfect role player"? Am I in the twilight zone?

He hit way better than Weise and fought way better than Weise, chipped in offensively with a goal and made the simple play in his own zone. Lapierre has struggled more in the defensive end.

No. Volpatti is a disaster in all three zones outside of his ability to hit. He's pretty much incapable of receiving a pass cleanly and moving it forward.

Volpatti is absolutely terrible defensively.

None of the above is accurate about Volpatti. This was a good claim by Washington. Good 4th liner, great guy. He's all about his teammates.
