Hit? About as much as Robert Nilsson.

Play defense? He's a step back of Marc Pouliot in that area of the game.

I like Ryan Potulny, but he is a dime a dozen in our system. He fills no specific niche and is loading up on PP time. Comrie is better than him at that, by a wide margin, and brings an element of actual scoring we could use in our top-six with Hemsky gone.
I don't know, i've seen more of an all around contribution from Potulny than i ever saw from Comrie by far and offensively Comrie really isn't that much better than Potulny as this point in his career.

Also, why does everyone want to see Horcoff and O'Sullivan stay together? they are absolutely a horrible match for each other, just look at how well Horcoff did when he got put on a line with Nilsson and Stone. Those two need to be split up....
FINEEE then...have it your wayyy

Penner-Gagner-Brule
Jacques-Horcoff-Cogliano
Stone-Comrie-O'Sullivan
Nilsson-Stortini-Potulny

<see how i made our 3rd line the 2nd line which in reality would be our 4th line because our 4th line is putting up points as if it was our 2nd line >

While I personally like the lines, there is no way management/coaching staff sit Moreau.

I like it, especially the waiving Moreau part
