+1Of course we are all entitled to our opinions. Mine is that Kurt's an above average ruckman without being elite. He's above average as a forward (pretty good hands, ok on the ground, strong, a good set shot - since he's been with us). Tippett is also potentially important to our structure, as he frees up attention on Buddy & Sammy. Tippett's size & potential output demands that he is assigned a tall defender when he is forward. Hopefully Naismith or Cameron will shoulder the ruck workload and free Kurt to dominate as a strong, relatively agile, deep tall forward this year. If Reid has an injury free season, having a 196cm strong marking 3rd tall forward (when they also want to double team Tippett and Buddy), will be a headache of migraine proportions for most defences. Tippett's great flaw IMO is he is below average injury wise. Spends too much time in the medical room.
