I agree with that it's just when you look at the roster and listen to what GMJN has been saying ... it's hard to see how he fits in the Top 12. Where and when will he play?
GMJN mentioned Eakin was going to be a 2/3 center this season (before trading for Roy). That means after the Roy trade you're looking at Benn, Roy, and Eakin down the middle on the Top 3 lines hopefully.
It's hard to imagine he'd get a shot over Fiddler to center the 4th line. I do believe he'd be a very good winger, but is he really going to play over Morrow, Vincour, Nystrom, or Fraser on the wing. I don't think so.
