I agree with the exception that his face-off % was around 40%, well below the respectable level in the NHL.

He's a lot better player than Lapierre will ever be. He reminds me of Carbonneau when he broke into the league. Not the greatest skater, goals scorer (at the NHL level that is, as both were good in junior) or stick handler, but he possesses a great sense of anticipation and he knows the game. Also a great leader.

I'd be shocked if he didn't stick this year.
