I hope the "vote of confidence" is shared by the coach, and that he gives him a little more of an opportunity to play a bit more consistently... in the ~10-13min/game range as opposed to the 8-9min he was getting this past season.
White strikes me as a player who could develop into a
Claude Lemieux clone
... not skilled/consistent enough to be a top-6 fixture, but a perfect mix of skill/intensity to play a strong bottom-6 role and the type of guy who elevates his game when the pressure is on... his production, as a pro (granted at the AHL level) reflects that, as does his "in-your-face" style in the NHL.
definitely think/hope he's a guy that will exceed most people's expectations.
Maybe I'll hope White becomes our
but classier (not as dirty as Downie) with some
Huge fan of White...
p.s.: C.Lemieux may be one of the best playoff performers in CH history (clutch goal scorer). But who knows? If White were given a shot at 2nd line duty one day and a speedy center and winger he would do the rest (fearlessly go into corners, crash the net, score huge dirty goals that come from hard work,etc).
