How about Sarich?

I dont think Montoya is much(if any) better than Howard is at this point. Pass.

"He's got high-end European skill and the size to go with it. He can skate, he's got good hands, and he competes hard. With his skill, he's got to learn to play every shift. Some games, when he was going, he was unstoppable. Then we'd see shifts when he wouldn't do much. A lot of that's just maturity." "He's a natural scorer. He has a great feel inside the blue line -- score, pass ... whatever. Put him with a good center -- he can be a real finisher."

STRENGTHS
Offers a much sought-after combination of size, skating and skill ... fast skater with great agility ... soft hands and a great scoring touch ... drives to the net ... intelligent offensive player with good hockey sense ... good one-on-one ability ... hard shot ... good playmaker ...

WEAKNESSES
Inconsistent -- great one shift, invisible the next ... not defensively-conscious ... not a hitter or a physical force ... undisciplined, piling up penalties with roughing infractions and misconducts ... still thin and needs to add strength ... not proven against high-end competition ...

Why are you all talking about Abdelkader & grit in a topic about Ritola?

In Topic: Kozzie a Wing again?

What's so bad about an 80pt player? Some of you just dont want any former Wings here. There's a difference between bringing McCarty back and Kozlov or Fedorov, who are both still good players. I wouldnt care at all if Fedorov or Kozlov came back(Fedorov during free agency, though), since they're still good players.
