Unquestionably headed towards success as a scorer in the NHL but he would be far better if he had an engine like his linemates. I'd like to see him score against the tough grinding teams such as the Flyers. I'm not sure he has that kind of heart.
Artie isn't a banger like Dubi and Cally, but that doesn't in any way, shape or form make him a floater.
Artie backchecks hard and is great defensively. He works hard along the boards and consistently drives to the net.
If you think he's a floater, then you don't know what a floater is.
