He's not flashy with the puck. He takes the simple plays when they're there. He's sound positionally and defensively. And he busts his hump on every shift. The only knock on him is his scoring touch, but if he gains some confidence in the offensive zone, I think he could put up some decent 3rd line numbers this season. Maybe somewhere in the 35-40 pt range?

EDIT: or...perhaps I'm crazy...haha
Agreed. Anyone who watched Powe last year on a consistent basis knows he's a 3rd line mainstay for the Flyers. This kid, like you said, works as hard as anyone, if not harder and Philly we love that.

Powe is a vital cog on our bottom 6 - a heart and soul battler.
