One-dimensional players

List your team's one-dimensional players (you can also list other teams as well, especially if the player used to play on your team). I am curious to see who you folks list. Fans often have unique opinions on their players' skill sets. I know Isles fans are somewhat unique in their viewpoints.

Here are mine for the Isles.

Mariusz Czerkawski - high scoring wing
Justin Papineau - high scoring wing
Alexei Yashin - high scoring pivot / wing
Steve Webb - hit machine
Eric Cairns - heavyweight fighter, chippy player

Jason Wiemer - cycling grinder

Sean Brown could easily be replaced by a traffic cone.

this is a hard one for the Canucks because most of their players (including defense) play a solid 2-way game.

Todd Bertuzzi - 1-dimensional powerforward. has no defensive abilities despite what his +/- says.
Bryan Allen - stay-at-home defensemen with an edge. although he has a hard blast and a solid outlet pass, his offensive skills are very limited.
Artem Chubarov - at this point in his career he is completely a defensive specialist. but he has some great skills that tease everybody
Mike Keane - no explanation needed
Marc Bergevin - not extremely skilled in any areas. but he's mainly a stay-at-home defensemen who's there for the dressing room.
Wade Brookbank - despite playing forward and defense, his position doesn't matter. he's just an enforcer.

Tomas Holmstrom - Great on the PP, because he causes all kinds of havoc in front of the net. Otherwise...pretty unspectacular.
Boyd Devereaux - He just plain sucks. I think that qualifies as 1 dimensional.

Jarkko Ruutu - he's annoying, that's it, absolutely useless for everything else. His hands are made of stone, and he's as slow as a turtle. Hey, and he turtles!

you know - for the longest time i thought markus naslund was horrible defensively. Then this year he made a commitment to defense and he has made some GREAT defensive plays - u know the "hard" ones like coming back hard to tie up a guy's stick or handle a 2 on 1........

bertuzzi has NOT and is still hanging out at the blue line far too long. Or rather was.......before the "incident".



i honestly couldn't say how good he is defensively until he TRIES to play some like markus.

Honestly wouldn't expect him to bee too great tho

Can't disagree with those two. Maybe Lang too which is to score, score and score, but hes turned out to be a PKer, a playmaker and a scorer. The only other player I could think of after that would be Hull which is to be a pure goal scorer, but this season he was a playmaker too. I know people will want to bring up Maltby, but he is an agitator, one of our best defensive forwards and scary good on the PK/SH offense. We lost all 3 games he was out of this year.

...oh I've got it!!! Hasek!!! His one dimensional in that he doesn't even ride the pine and he STILL gets paid for it.

Bryan Marchment - Pure defensive player... big hitter, no offense.
Wade Belak - Goon... no offense, not much of a defensive player.
Drake Berehowsky - Offensive defenseman... big, tries to play defensive hockey.
Nathan Perrott - Fighter, decent defensive player... not much of an offensive threat... at all.
Tie Domi - Has been very mediocre this past year... hardly fights and has been a liability at times.

Filip Kuba- WHAT does this guy do exactly?
Willie Mitchell- He hits but he couldn't find the net even if he was standing in the crease.
Pierre- Marc Bouchard- Tiny guy that is having trouble playing defense
Matt Johnson- He punches people...And he can score goals but that comes like once every bluemoon.
Alex Henry- Willie Mitchell but a lot younger
Richard Park- He takes time off...A lot of time off between goals, couldn't score constantly if his life depended on it.

That's all I can think of.

Spezza/Havlat - pure offence... Spezza's ice time will be limited until this changes

For the Stars:

- Bill Guerin. Not a liability, cause he does seem to care helping out, but it's definitely not his thing.
- Richard Matvichuk. Sure he accomplished like 25 points this season, but that's more of a result due to his icetime and teammates. Same with Derian Hatcher.
- Marty Turco. Never ever leaves his crease, rarely joins the rush. Horribly one sided.
- Dave Tippet. Usually walks from left to right about 10 times per game, but that's it.

I'd add Tom Fitzgerald and Robert Reichel to that list. Reichel is a hell of a grinder and good along the boards, but thats really about it. Fitzgerald is good in his own end, and good on the PK, but not much else.

miroslav satan - streaky scorer, checks like a schoolgirl
max afinogenov - (occasional) razzle-dazzle goals, also checks like a schoolgirl
peters/boulton - goons with no offenses whatsoever
(traded, our apologies boston) andy delmore - master of turnovers

Yannic Perreault: All offense, absolutely no defense.
Joe Juneau & Andreas Dackell: They're good at cycling the puck in the offensive zone but that's the only offense those guys can provide... their game is all about defensive responsibilities (PK).

Scott Gomez - Pure passer/playmaker. Doesn't really score much and isn't great defensively, but damn what a stickhandler/passer

Jay Pandolfo - Pure defensive winger. Put up decent point totals this year, but that is the exception to the rule. Great pker and forechecker, but in 8 years in the nhl he has 55 goals, and 133 points.

not only is he used as an agitator/energy guy though, but he's a solid PK'er, and a solid checker (been used against Forsberg as an example) as well. he's also been a good fill-in guy on the PP and as a linemate with the twins when needed. i figured i'd leave him out as i feel he does have more than 1-dimension to his game.

Bryan Berard - Apparently lost his defensive eye
Deron Quint - Need I say more?
Igor Korolev - Wait, I guess you need at least one dimension to be one dimensional...
Travis Moen - Anyone know why we still play this kid? I think he had 6 points on the year.
Jason Strudwick - You get what you pay for


I was going to say Ryan VandenBussche, but with those 2 goals in the season finale...
