Where that can really become an issue is on the PP. It is unfortunate, but something they'll have to deal with. That is one of the reasons I would have liked to draft Lupul (had he been available).
I am happy they have a right shooting d-man though. I think Burns will do wonders for the PP if he gets a chance. He has a nice shot from the point and can get it off and through bodies much better than Kuba. Not to mention Burns can skate better with the puck.
