Thanks for the info guys!
IMO, he'll be fine in that system... Lavvy utilized him well during the last half of the season and in the postseason. I doubt however that he will play with Malkin... at least not for more than a couple cameos here and there. I'd expect him to be on the third or forth lines with spot duty on the second if pressed... no matter how many bottom six players you have and lack of top six; he is just not a consistent point produce and as has been pointed out, he is not a finisher.

I think you got a real nice team player and quite a bargain... I just hope he doesn't come back to bite the Flyers in the arse.
