I can see that being an issue. He's got the hands to be a second-liner at best, a tweener at worst. I think during the Playoff run he had about three or four breakaways that he failed to convert on, so it was definitely frustrating. He gets so many chances. But thus far this year, he's been burying them. On pace for 20+ goals and 50+ points, which is pretty good bang for buck at $1.9m.
Although really, I would have even been happy with 15-15-30 production from him, so this is just a pleasant surprise.
