<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>wabit</b></div><div>He muffed a puck last game, but his hands are decent overall. Kap/Zucc and Boldy lines have both been better with Steel than without.

1 skill play a game, no more, no less Freddy G. Dewar has no o-zone skills except but decent speed, decent PKer. Hartman has a shot, but can't pass to save his life, and does stupid things. This is just picking the least bad of the bunch, and this year it's Steel. Steel needs to shoot more instead of trying to make that extra pass (a la Granny).

Any skill that is added to Boldy's line is immediately subtracted by adding the blackhole that is Rossi.

Boldy needs to be put with Greenway and JEE. There are a lot of wide open nets for Boldy to shank his shots on, rather than Foligno shanking his shots or not being a step too slow to get to the puck. The coach is too stubborn headed to try out different line combos when things aren't working.</div></div>

I’ve watched every game this season, some games twice…and every single game I notice how crappy Steel’s hands are! He can’t catch a pass that’s not perfect (can’t catch some perfect ones either), can’t stick handle in traffic to save his life, and is a horribly inaccurate passer! He is not an NHL player!

I hope you are wrong about Rossi! Time will tell…

I agree with most of your thoughts though…

I also believe that if Zuccarello didn’t share part of his brain with Kaprizov…he would be a very low end 2nd line wing! He is putrid in so many areas of the game!
