I had a center with real good offensive stats (puck control, passing and deking) and thought he would be a good point producer on my 4th line. His 40 skating and work rate made him lazy and slow and he ended up averaging just north of a 5 rating for the year. It was very dissapointing.

Also, that guy's EPA is terrible and, other than faceoffs, has little redeeming qualities (remember: playmakers use skating and deking to open up space for themselves before they pass - as it is now he is a pylon in the offensive zone, imo)
