I admit that I was one of the ones down on him during the Summer, but our mistake wasn't in undervaluing or underestimating him, but in underestimating how much the new rules would improve his offense. The only difference in his game this season is that he can't be slowed down in the offensive zone anymore. I still want to see better defense, backchecking and puck decisions from him before calling a perfect 3rd-line center, but I'll agree that he
(thanks to the new rules) makes a very good one. I've been very impressed with his extra offense and forechecking.
