Solid and unspectacular is what the habs need, especially on the PK. The sens second goal came after multiple missed clearing opportunities and their third came off weak defence. A solid guy who can hit is what they are missing.
Not sure if Pateryn is that guy but I'm not going to knock lack of flash. Flashy play is already covered.
Yeah, I hope Habs haven't claimed him. Oilers fans don't have anything good to say about that guy that's for sure.
I've read mixed reviews about him on that board. They are complaining that he has not fought since having concussion issues earlier this year. The concussion issue is always a red flag. I liked his speed and toughness but he's never been known as having a good hockey IQ. So, if he isn't hitting or fighting....what would he be doing on our team?
Pateryn hasn't played as well since being sent down, I could see him being one of the call ups once the Dogs season is over but I'd be surprised if he gets the call over Tinordi if they were to call someone up.
