I'm very surprised that I like him so much now.

He has consistently worked hard and has crazy skill for a guy his size. I can't see him being traded for anything reasonable.
Totally agree here. I was a Sens fan so I was pre-inclined to hate him and Wellwood Now they're 2 of the 3 best forwards on the team.

I'll also add that he really uses his size very well. He hits more than I remembered from his Leafs days, but more than that - he protects the puck very, very well. Tough to knock him off it.

To the OP: Antropov's value to the Jets is at an all-time high right now. If you'd asked in the off-season, I would have been happy with Boyes. Now it would probably take Roy (even as much as we all hate him after last week's dive ).
