He's not an offensive defenseman. Hes a stay at home/shut down guy. You're looking at Santini from the wrong angle.


Santini could be an exception, but even defensive players usually score decently at lower levels. You don't find many good defensive forwards or defenseman who never put up points anywhere.

Tri,

Obviously last years numbers matter, but his numbers the 2 years prior look good. Doesn't that lend some credibility to his "issues" this past season? The most recent season should get the most weight but we shouldn't forget those other recent seasons too.

So I know his production this year was underwhelming but it looks like his production the 2 years prior was pretty nice. Made me feel better about Zacha seeing that.

USA Today scouting report

6. New Jersey Devils - C Pavel Zacha. Big centerman is a dominating force down the middle — just what every team covets. A real horse with the size to bump and grind and the skill to make plays with the puck. Top-notch speed and quickness for a big player. Strong puck skills - handles it well and can distribute off both sides of the blade. Can also bury chances around the slot with a great release - gets terrific wrist snap. Great combination of a physical power forward and skill player at the centre position. Goes hard to the net without hesitation. Plays borderline dirty and on the edge - can intimidate defenders with his pounding forecheck. Perhaps most impressive for a young offensive star is his commitment to defense . Always responsible - comes back hard on the backcheck and consistently helps his d-men down deep below the dots. Very good hand/eye coordination on deflections and 1-timers.

I actually like them.


I'm neutral to liking the new Coyotes look too.
