Man, that is a tough decision but with Booth coming back and everybody currently in game shape (knock on wood) one of these guys is gonna have to be in the press box (unless AV decides to troll these forums by sitting Kassian...). They've both been playing really well and brought a lot of effort and energy to the lineup but they both bring different things as well.

Edge to Wiese
-speed & skating
-board battles
-can play on the PK

Edge to Volpatti
-fighting
-hitting and physical play
-occasional fourth-line scoring

Even
-passing and playmaking
-not taking dumb penalties
-overall effort

That's how I see it at least. I think the best and most likely route is to platoon these two guys depending on the opponent and who's going best at the time, because they're both good on the fourth line and it's best to keep them up to game speed.

Volpatti he is more of what this team needs on the 4th, physical hard hitting, fights. Last year I kept hearing how we miss raffi and how his big hits would fire the team up, volpatti is doing the same only clean.


Why is this not a poll?

The scoring should be on Weise side, Patty is more consistent with big hits, but Weise can up that part of his game when the time calls for it. See playoffs last year. If we have to decide between the 2 going into the playoffs, I pick DW.

I am pretty sure av would choose weise though he seems to pick players hes more familiar with. But i hope volpatti stays over weise.

Dale Weise is a better hockey player, but Volpatti is more willing to play the role we need on that 4th line.

I'd say Volpatti.

Volpatti will sit tomorrow and then it will be a rotation of any fourth line player minus Lappy who does not have a good game.

Volpatti hands down for me. I like what he brings to the 4th line. I can't stress that part enough. You don't need 4th liners to make pretty plays and score. You need them to make big clean hits and get some energy in the lineup. A little bit of intimidation is what we need more than soft hands. Plus at least Volpatti can fight, and do it well I might add. I was so impressed with him challenging Reaves against the Blues just to get some emotions going. He plays with heart.

Most likely Weise stays. That then raises the question, who also plays on the 4th line with Lappy and Weise/Volpatti?

Don't really think it matters. Wiese has speed, but was playing with a bit of an edge when he first got here. Now, he's lost that. Volpatti is less experienced.

Either way, I'm with riffraff. I miss the good old days with Odjick. He played with an edge. I miss all the old guys.....Courtnall, Momesso, Gino, etc........we didn't win that much, but we went down swinging. A bit more heart back then.

So, as to the Wiese/Volpatti thing......I'll take either pending who shows more energy.

Those 2 guys are great 4th liners, I'd say keep them intact and see if we can trade Raymond. The guy's an UFA after this season and I'm not sure he'll be returning, so why not try to get something for him? He's gotten off to a good start, I think we might be able to get a 3rd round pick or something

If you want to win the cup, then yea you need your 4th liners to score at some point.

Patty is the better fighter, but still, he has been destroyed in half his fights this year. Neither is a match for the big boys, best to go with the better player.

If you look at Day 1 photos volpatti is wearing what looks like a wrist cast or something. Might be injured.
Volpatti clearly understands what his job is and he does it quite well. He's making a name for himself - will make his hits, take responsibility for them and protect his teammates.

I disagree. I think you have to look at the teams identity here. When you have 2 lines that are barely scoring then you need everybody to chip in offensively every now and then. But if you have 3 dangerous lines like we do with the combination of Schroeder, Hansen and Raymond on the 3rd line then I think you can afford to have somebody in your lining who's more on the intimidating side and who's capable of standing up for his teammates and others.
