Nobody is crapping on him, he's just not a scoring-line center. He's a defensive guy and that's where he belongs.

Agreed I just think the isles are a better team with him in the lineup......call him whatever you want.

Whatever as long as he’s getting minutes. Everyone’s interchangeable in the NHL. You don’t make it to this league if you’re pigeon holed. You gotta be able to adapt. Cizikas can play anywhere. He’s extremely underrated.
- kindlyrick

Wrong and its why guys like eberle when they get older may be out of the league sooner because he cant play a checking role after the skills deteriorate or his game slows down. Cizikas is a good player and a checker pk type guy, hes never going to be a 1 pp player and no hes not going in front of the net he is too small and doesnt have lees hand eye.

Part of me thought you might be. Another part thought you might be inebriated. I posted my response with the most likely in mind.

I can’t blame you for not remembering. This board consists of a rather argumentative bunch. Kinda gets hard keeping track of who said what.
- Wildschwein


I mean i def might have said it trying to be passionate and resolute. Although my point is really that he’s just an important cog on the wheel. I have a special place for the guys on the PK that take those clappers to the body nightly.

Agree to disagree. I got news for ya, if Lee wasn’t on this team Cizikas would be in front of the net on the PP.

As for Eberle, I’m not sure where he came into this but when i say interchangeable i mean playing different positions. Eberle’s game are his hands and nose for the net. That’s what got him in the league. He’s never going to be asked to play the bottom defensive role. Not for 6 shmill

Sooo punching said screamer in the junk would be the incorrect response?
- Wildschwein

Depends on the situation. It takes years of practice to decipher the difference between just regular yelling to express something or an actual confrontation.

Also, when someone asks how you're doing, the only acceptable response is the exact same question, worded slightly differently. Nobody actually cares how you're doing.

I don't think anyone made a huge deal about him. Even if he did stink, it's a dirt-cheap one year deal.
- eichiefs9

Yeah, you did. I think you called him dog excrement.

You have such hate for Cizikas.....why?

Who are you talking about being on the second unit here? I wanna know what we’re arguing about here.....you kinda lost me.

It’s so funny to me......the isles are playing decent to good hockey and putting some wins together and last night Cizikas prob had one of the best plays of the night (second to Greiss stopping Sid the kid on the breakaway) and somehow there’s negativity with Cizikas and his role? It’s amazing.

I dont hate him but he just isnt a top 6 nhl player. You said if lee wasnt on the top pp in front casey would be. Well casey isnt even on the second pp unit so thats incorrect. I like the guy and hes playing where he should be

- JohnScammo

I mean, he's not "good". He does an acceptable job of being a 3C and has chipped in a bit of offense. It's hard to dislike him given the fact that he's probably only here for one season, but he's not some great defensive stalwart or anything.

If lee wasn’t on this team, there would be two spots open for net presence on the PP. One of them would be Cizikas. Nowhere did i mention first unit or second unit. But my point, to be CRYSTAL CLEAR, is that if needed he could be that guy. My point, again, is he’s a very heads up player who’s not just a defensive forward. The only reason he’s not in front of the net on the PP is because he’d be gassed and he’s needed for the PK.....it has nothing to do with his eye hand.

I don’t have the argue in me today. Agree to disagree. Moving on

The guy plays a decent 2-way game.........all for a whopping $2.75 million. I'd say this was a pretty good signing by Lou.

- kindlyrick

Thats like saying the rangers wouldnt be good without lundqvist when they were winning. If lee wasnt here we would have a different top line winger and he would be there because cizikas isnt a skill guy and doesnt score a ton and last i checked didnt have a ton of tip ins. Hes also small to go in front so if he were to be on the pp hed be in barzal bailey or eberles spot but he isnt and thats because hes a bottom 6 forward and doesnt have the skill set. He is an energy guy that works hard and chips in sometimes if he was more than that hed have put up more points by now, hes been in the league for 7 years and put up over 20 points 2x.

If you dont think guys that are big and strong with good hand eye to tip and deflect picks are important on the power play then idk what to tell you

Yeah, there ARE parts of the country where, when they ask you how you are, the question isn't merely rhetorical.
