452 faceoffs isn't a lot for a center, but it was the fourth most on the team. It is certainly more than the "couple dozen" you thought you saw last season.
This. Together,Gator and Emmerton almost matched Helm in total FOs, but Gator took a vast majority of those. While I don't put Gator on a pedestal, he's far from the scrub many here are attempting to make him into. Once he stops being shuffled around and gets settled into one particular role, I think we'll start to see more out of him. I'd honestly like to see Gator, Helm, Tootoo become an established line. Emmerton would have to improve his FO for that line to stick though.
