Volpatti brings WAY more energy than any other player on our 4th line.
Volpatti > Sestito/Weise/Pinizzotto
If weiss actually played his role or pinz this issue wouldnt be an issue
Volpatti and Sestito bring different roles to fourth.
Volpatti is the hitter, energy guy
Lappierre is the all around in your face, tough to play against center
Sestito is the big body, enforcer, you send him out to send a message when the likes of Lucic start taking liberties
not every player on the 4th line brings the same skills or plays the same role and as you can see my argument is volpatti is not comparable to sestito.
I think sestito plays his role well.
The argument was weiss/pinz vs volpatti and clearly that was the error because neither of those guys play as hard as he did. Weiss can but thinks he's the dutch gretz and needs to understand his role, he aint a scorer in this league and never will be. Go use your speed and hit. He's good defensively so needs to show he understands his role.
Pinz, well I haven't really been impressed. I don't see what he brings. Seems to just be 'there' vs making an impact at his very basic role, that being, go hit, make it tough for dmen and forwards and tire em out by constantly hitting them...
As someone showed above his hits per shift are not that great for a good skater, and being a good skater is key to hitting, because you get in fast and on top of people...so i dont get it...
anyways...thats all i got
