2 - If nothing else that shows he's not a defensive liability and if nothing else can play a 4th line center role. 4th line centers don't have to be big bruising fighters.....
imo when i was watching it he was really REALLY unlucky to not register a single point.. he played 1 of our post season games or our "kid line" did and imo they looked solid.. generated scoring chances with good O-zone time
