Christensen didn't construct the roster. Sather did, and Glen employs Christensen as a depth forward who excels in shootouts. Christensen did a decent job at what was asked of him. One of his primary responsibilities is to perform in the shootout, and in that respect he was light out.

Rookie Zuccarello, with his shootout success, was also a reason that we made the playoffs. What's your point? We're discussing Christensen here.
You convinced me, Extra Effort award was wrongly given to Prust, Christensen was lights out for us and deserves it.
