He was thriving in a 3rd line center role last season, but then Crosby and Malkin went down and his role became too much for him to handle. I think he's struggled with confidence ever since then. He's a smart player with a heavy shot and a very quick release. He's also right-handed and wins faceoffs at a good rate. He's more of an offensive minded bottom 6 center. Not really a checker that can shutdown anybody.
Excellent post - as both a Jackets and Penguins fan, I couldn't agree more.

To me, this definitely looks like a precurser to another deal. Adios, Derick Brassard.
