I think it is that, his play with the puck, but I honestly and sadly think that it has a lot to do with Ribeiro as well. People seem to love Ribeiro around here because he will do a fancy move once or twice a game, EVEN IF IT ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING, but they will miss who is creating the space, the time, and the defensive coverage. The fact is many people like "flash," something Marcel doesn't do, at least not yet. I think people are almost blinded by it.
