Against, nice player but more than a third liner he's not
I have to completely 200% disagree with you on that. One individual game doesn't always paint an accurate picture of a player.

He had a few beauties last season, and he showed quite a flashes of slick playmaking ability this pre-season. He's never going to get by on his skill alone, but he's absolutely got an above average combination of determination and skill. I'm looking for a big year from him. I think he's capable of ~25 goals, ~30 assists this year. Especially playing with Dubinsky and Anisimov who look considerably faster, stronger, and most importantly more definitive with and without the puck than last season. It's incredibly early, but they seem to have really bought into Tortorella's aggressive pressure system, so far.
