I mean, think about it, there really isn't a textbook "dangerous" player on this team besides Kovalchuck. Elias is crafty but is no longer really considered that dangerous on his own, Zajac and Henrique have proven to lack any sort of finish, and...well, that's it really in terms of dangerous top-6 forwards. Clarkson, Poni and Zubrus are tough power forward/grinder types who are great at cycling the puck and creating space, but what good is that if the result of their work is an easily stopped shot from the point?
This team has lots of character guys, and setup guys, but no finishers. That second line desperately needs a sniper.
