That's OK, no need for reasons on that account . Those you give just aren't sensible though.

1: He has no grit. He leads all forward in hits on his team and has more than any top 6 player on the Pens.
2: He would rely heavily on Sid or Crosby to score: He led Toronto in points last year (more than all Pens players sens Malkin and Crosby) and is one point off Stajan to lead Toronto forwards again this year. With Antropov last season, and Matt Stajan and Grabovksi this season as the two top centers.

I think you underrate his shot, and most of his game. But I have players I don't particularly like - or rate as high as stats and accomplishments suggest I should - too.

Come clean though, your real issue is that he shoots left, right ?
