He will be back in Pittsburgh and he will be a mainstay for a long time. I think he has a John Madden upside and he didn't stick in the NHL until age 26.
He may very well be a 4th line center but I donít see him being on the same level as John Madden. I know they are only 22 but if they were good enough they should be playing especially for a team like the Pens. If they are part of the future let them take their lumps now. What did he say against Pens management?
