I do agree that he could've been more effective w/alittle more playing time here in NY but Simon has much better hands and is able to slow down a play and make the right read where as Sandy had hands of stone and tried to do everything at 100MPH.
Simon also has shown a willingness to intimidate by doing more than staring at another players and looking tough hoping that a tough look and the name on the back of the jersey would be enough. Simply put, I think that Simon uses his size and strength better than Sandy did. Sandy wanted to score the SportsCenter goal while Simon is content scoring while two defenders are knocking him to the ice. And you're right, JR, Simon makes much better passes than Sandy could. He's just a better and smarter hockey player.
