Oh my God, can we not jump on a guy who lives on the other side of the country about his business? Get over yourselves, Jesus
Anyway..Harrold's been used at forward before, but besides that I think any of our D besides perhaps Zidlicky are too slow to play the forward position. And if you take Zid off the back end, you lose his breakout passing/offensive contributions from the blue line. Probably not the best idea with the Devils.
Wasn't Burns used at forward ages ago in Minnesota?
Run his course? He'll be 27. Why would anyone think this? Probably because he wasn't considered one of the top 100 prospects in 2005, as if that makes a difference now.
Because, while he's certainly a solid minute-eater, I don't personally consider Fayne to be anything special. I think he's a prototypical 3-4 D-man that has adapted to playing top-2 minutes in NJ. Certainly valuable to the team right now, but I'd hope in two years some of the prospects in the system are ready to move up and take his place.
