As a third-liner, I don't think he has the patience that Juneau has with the puck and sometimes is out of position. As a forechecker, he's clearly the best on the team along with Begin and now Dowd.
I'd like to see him stay on the scoring lines. Despite spending half the year on the checking line, his numbers are comparable to most of the other top 6 players on our team. I think he needs more exposure in the top 6. I'd love to see us give him a LONG look, another year or two even to see if he can put it all together.
He handles the puck very well at top speed and has some nice moves to go along with his shot. He's also an asset on the forecheck and his speed suits the transition game we want to play. He has become defensive-minded more so than he was because of the time spent on the checking lines the last couple seasons, but let's not forget, we did not acquire Bulis to play on a checking line.
