He wins faceoffs, blocks shots, kills penalties, creates scoring chances, plays the point on the power play, and is still one of the better defensive forwards on the team. To say he adds nothing when he's not scoring is ignorant.

Also even at his best, I wouldn't put Pavelski in the top 20 forwards in the league.
He lost far too many important faceoffs this playoff season. Its one thing when you go cold in scoring. But I wasn't pleased him going cold when he needed to come up with a cluthcy faceoff win in a critical moment. However, I can forgive him.
