He has above-average passing and shooting skills. He just needs to USE them.
There's nothing wrong with having a 3rd line that scores more so than "grinds", especially if you have a 4th line that can do that effectively.

And if he was centering guys like Avery and Callahan, it doesn't really make a difference anyway. What would worry me is if our 3rd line ended up being something like Grachev-Christensen-MZA
