Good around the net, but bad at hockey. Worst skater on the team, (other than Couturier who just turned 19) no hands and scattered brained decision making with, and without the puck.

You guys can keep lauding this guy all you want for now, but when he gets dealt or taken off the Giroux and Jagr line, he'll go back to being the schlub he's been for most of his career.
