I too believed in him and always backed him on these boards (just ask Plekanec).
To me he is like a Zed Clone (lots of shots and a pure scorer), but I believe he will get more assists because of his shots on net and more willing to dish it off than Zed.
I also think he is a future leader on this team (he will wear an "A" in a couple of seasons) by leading by example in his play on the ice, he just doesn't give up and plays injured (I believe he played injured the whole AHL playoffs, shoulder or ribs or both).
Character player with talent, you gotta love it.
