eh, that's always been the case for him. Same deal with his best comparable in Holmstrom. If he's ever being relied on to create offensive plays, then he's being used wrong. Unfortunately, that's been EXACTLY the case this year at times. He doesn't really fit our current style of play. He needs to be on a line with 2 skilled puck possession players, who he can create space for. He's a valuable complementary player have, but we don't have anyone to complement him with.
