His Corsi was quite good last year, albeit against weak opposition. This may mean he's either better defensively than given credit for, or that he's good at keeping the puck in the offensive zone -- which also results in fewer goals against.

Not a guy to rely on for tough minutes, but I could see him filling a useful role 5-on-5 alongside one of the Habs' hulking defensive D-men. He's certainly capable of the transition pass, and who knows, maybe after Lemaire and Martin he'll be pretty solid positionally.
