Why are you so defensive lol I just said it's my opinion. I just think you're adjusting it to your own biases rather than anything else.
I'd rather play Gusarov since he's a better skater even for the pass/sth downgrade considering Duschene is the primary puckhandler back there. As nice as Tatarinov's 5SHP is 1 SHA makes it a lottery at best.
I'd rather play Sydor as well because C-B is more forgiving in terms of weight disrepancy so Sydor can check most players anyway. Think Hatcher is also overrated because he just brings the same skillset as Iafrate while being unbearably slow
