Kloucek can’t break into the lineup in a notoriously weak defensive corps. Dvorak’s knees can’t seem to stay together. Rachunek, well, is just asking for too much money.
To say that Arvedsson and Dvorak are the same player is simply foolish. Dvorak can’t backcheck to save his life, despite his vaunted speed. How fast can a skater be if his knees keep getting ripped up? Arvedsson excels at defensive play, a runner-up for the Selke in ’98.
As for McLaren, well, whatever. They can have him. The Blueshirts seem to favor porcelain players (i.e. Lindros, Dvorak, Richter, etc.)]]>
