this carter/pandolfo talk always makes me laugh. i think it's the fact that it's a bottom 6 guy wearing #20.
pando's strength was his defensive play and PK. he wasn't much on the cycle and i always felt he didn't know where to be in the offensive zone which was funny considering that he was an offensive player in college.
carter is hardly used in a PK role, but can cycle effectively and basically doesn't lose his position in the defensive zone.
gionta hasn't been as bad as in years past and i think he's reached "mascot" status but i don't want to be complaining about him next year and i just have a feeling that we will be (especially with his brother back playing wing which is something i can 100% see lou doing).
