He was pretty bad at times last season, but I suspect that it was mainly due to lack of conditioning (he had surgeries on his eye up to August). Although I don't think Manhy will ever be the elite checking centre he was 2 years ago, I think he'll be a decent checking centre, or a really good 4th line centre this year.

Again, this is based on me believing that his major setback was a lack of conditioning. He was still awesome on the dot last season though.
