He's taken on the Mike Knuble role on this club (which was originally set for Hartnell, but he couldn't handle the task) and has done so really well. Say what you want about swatting in rebounds for garbage goals. Those goals need to be scored in order to win games. Simmonds does a lot of dirty work for the club and does a lot of heavy lifting for his linemates. So, I don't know where you get these "hollow" numbers from, but if you take away those 28 goals he scored, who's going to replace them, JVR?
Also, we sometimes forget how young this kid is. Is he even 23 yet? Just wait until Simmonds puts on some more muscle and matures a bit. Guy will be a tank.
