Wrong.

Christianson is a Top-6 forward, or an AHLer. With his style and skillset, it's all or nothing. He's useless in a bottom-6 role. He doesn't hit particularly well, doesn't backcheck particularly well, doesn't kill penalties, doesn't grind, why would you want him bottom-6?

He has above-average passing and shooting skills. He just needs to USE them.
