I will say that he does give the second line much improved defensive coverage and puck possession. The lack of a decent second-line center last year cost the Caps as much defensively as it did on the offensive side.
It is funny how people try to tell Caps fans about Nylander as if they haven't seen him play before, although not sure I count that second year, a whopping 3 games, thanks to Mr. Yonkman (and then the firesale); Nylander had the 2nd or 3rd longest ironman streak at the time of the Yonkman check
