In Pittsburgh, he's behind Crosby and Malkin, and relegated to second PP unit.
He might be on thier top PP unit. Theyd be balancing 3 lefties with the two Staals and Skinner but I guess thats a little better than our 4 with Malkin/Sid/Neal/Staal.
Another point I'd have to make is that unless some of Carolinas younger players really step up I'm not sure being a second line center in Carolina really gets him better linemates then being a 3rd line center in Pittsburgh.
