He wins faceoffs, he forechecks, he plays defense and kills penalties ... and does those well. That's his role. He would have to lose 43 consecutive draws for his percentage to drop to Spaling's FO%. He's not a scorer .. never has been, never will be but he has a skill set that is much needed when playing teams like the Canucks who usually dominate at the dot and are extremely dangerous on the power play.
