It's only one game-plus the games he played for us with OTT, but Dog looks like a textbook 4th liner. He has guts and a little speed but no creativity or hands. I understand Claude not wanting to break up the fourth..... Just have to wait for Soderberg to get here and see if he can replace Pandolfo....Cant believe I am wondering if someone can replace Pandolfo.
Having seen him in well over 100 games in person, I can tell you that couldn't be further from the truth. He was most successful in the NHL when he was on the third line in Ottawa (which actually got second line minutes at the time). His productivity dropped when a trade pushed him to the fourth line, where he's more or less been since then. Playing with 4th line grunts has stunted his stickwork, but I've seen him make moves like the best of em.
