EC really has no defined role on the team. Too inconsistent to play in the top 6, and doesn't have the defensive prowess or physicality to play in the bottom 6. He's in no man's land.

The only thing he excels at is the shootout, but I hate the idea of him making the team or dressing over someone who can contribute more during the actual game. For example, if Hagelin is NHL-ready, I think he may bring more to the table than EC, especially in a bottom 6 role.
