The guy just needs a change of scenery I believe very strongly. We could sign him for cheap and could be an AMAZING steal that could get us past the first round of the playoffs. Arnott has said a few times now that we need more offense and Poile has to do something if he wants the team to go deep into playoffs.
Imagine Arny had Max beside him!! That would rock!!
Enh. Do you really think he can put up 20 Legwand and Erat? He doesn't really seem all that much different from Ward to me.
I think he's got more raw talent than Ward, who relies almost solely on being in the right place at the right time to score goals. I think Pyatt is more like a poor-man's hartnell...whereas Ward is a rich man's Fiddler.
Afinogenov, to me, is another soft "finesse" player who lives on the perimeter. I'm not sure there'd be real-estate enough for Erat, Dumont and Afinogenov to all squeeze themselves outside the play.
Kotalik isn't much better, but at least he's more "shoot-first."
Predators Fans- REALLY- go spend your time sucking back beers, cutting the grass or barbecuing- Poile IS NOT going to sign anyone else or make a trade for a scorer. The Predators will be a team of boys playing among men yet again this coming season. The sooner everyone accepts that the less painful it will be for all....
