What's the one element....

In your opinion what's the one element the predators are missing right now?

IMO we really need a SOLID scorer. I don't care if they are top notch at D (obviously a plus), we just need someone who is a pure scorer.

Agreed...our scoring by committee comes and goes is cycles. A pretty consistant goal scorer should help our playmakers.

Isn't Shishkanov the closest thing we have to a "pure goal scorer" ? ( not counting Johansson or any of our other gritty, roleplayers )

I really liked the way Timofei played in one of our pre-season games scoring a goal from behind the net. Maybe he will be called up before season's end.

I would like to see some consistency in scoring. I also would love to see Shishkanov, but only if he gets a good shot at it. A couple of games on a good line, if he sucks, throw him back down, but if he shows signs of brilliance, let him play either with Leggy and Walker, or Hall. And put Harts with Johnson and Walker/Hall. Do you think Erat could play center? Erat centering Orszagh and Shish might be a good combo too, but I don't know how well Erat would be backchecking, Arki if anything has stepped his defense up a little.

I think Orszagh would have a better shot at playing center.

Ironic, in that I thought of that same line combo this AM: Erat centering Orszagh and Shishkanov. Wow, what a line that would make!

And, yes, to the point of the original poster, a pure consistent GOAL SCORER is what the club needs.

Obviously we need a goal scorer. But, we need a crease clearer almost as bad. We need what Kloucek was supposed to become and what Schnabel might turn out to be. We need a mean, SOB, who injures those in his way then spits on them as he skates towards his next victim. Well, not exactly that bad, but we need someone like Derian Hatcher or Pronger. I know they are hard to find, but we need them nevertheless.

So I guess you can hang out at the center line, and I'll do the dirty work...

I'll hang at the blue, so it's not a 2 line pass..

I'll be there to pick up the rebound, place it top shelf, and pump my fist in pure jubilation.
