Well, compared to Orr I think we could argue about the value of an enforcer in the line-up if you were so inclined but I think it'd be ridiculous to argue that Hunter is a better fourth line player than Orr is an enforcer so I'd be more inclined towards Orr in that role. Compared to Dupuis, who I don't know much about, Hunter is 5 years older, injury prone and hasn't been used in a significant PK'ing role for some time so my inclination would be towards Dupuis, who did kill penalties last year, as well. If the Leafs were looking for a veteran presence on the 4th line I'd favour Drury over Hunter by leaps and bounds.

Quote from: Tigger on August 02, 2011, 07:51:38 PMI don't think there's any question that Hunter would be a better option as a 4th liner than Orr, enforcer argument aside ( I've been clear on that previously, I think it's a useless roster spot and the Leafs played better without him )
Quote from: Tigger on August 02, 2011, 07:51:38 PMThe thing with Dupuis is that he has little track record though I have to admit he did ok with limited ice time but playing on the last place pk is nothing to write home about. With Hunter opening a roster spot for him would totally depend on health but I can't see much of a risk signing him for cheap and seeing what he could do during the preseason, he was a top pk'r and could chip in with some goals at one time but again, I'm really not interested in him as a solution for the pk, mainly NHL depth.
Quote from: Tigger on August 02, 2011, 07:51:38 PMWe've talked about Madden as an option, I'd much rather him than Drury, same issue as Hunter ... health ( I agree though, if the choice was one risk over the other the Leafs have need at centre more so ).
Quote from: Tigger on August 03, 2011, 03:41:28 AMI think you kind of have to set Hunters last year aside, that was a dreadful round and maybe it's indicative of a real downward trend, hard to say exactly but before that he scored at approximately the same clip he always has, around .5 ppg with the lions share at even strength. A little bit of scoring and hitting couldn't hurt the Leafs though I agree there are other options but it's tough to say from this perch just how the price performance would shake out, leaves me wondering how much he might cost, 1 mil, +/-?
Quote from: Tigger on August 03, 2011, 03:41:28 AMFwiw I think Drury has more question marks around his health than Hunter does but I wouldn't hate both of them for what they bring ( if healthy and cheap ). I agree Drurys leadership seems preferable and that he has apparently embraced a bottom 6 role.
