As I've said repeatedly, he's a role player. (use the search function if you'd like to confirm that I've said it repeatedly)
Three kills so far in the Boston game .... 1:36 of short handed time. He's taking over 25% of the PK time. 1-2 at the dot .... 100% in the defensive zone.
He can lose over 40 consecutive draws and still have a higher FO% than Spaling, but winning the draw isn't important.
Of the forwards, only Toots has more hits.
His skill sets are becoming more and more redundant, but, they aren't completely covered by those of other players yet.
