However, Bruce Boudreau brought out the best in Lammikko and he doesn’t get enough credit. Lammikko has done really well along the boards and has been solid in Boudreau’s heavy forechecking system.
Lammikko’s analytical numbers aren’t the best. In fact, they are near the bottom of the Canucks on NaturalStatTrick but he has proven that he can be a capable fourth-liner with them. Lammikko has seven goals and eight assists in 71 games this season. That’s not bad.
However, his play has kind of dropped off since Motte was traded to the New York Rangers but if he is brought back on a cheap one-year deal, then fine with me.
