I think his leadership might hurt him longrun in how organizations look at him. He won't likely impact a NHL dressing room, but could have a large impact on your AHL room. That is if he doesn't keep improving, I really hope now that he is fully healthy he has a better year in the AHL.
The only reason I mentioned that was because I also pointed out Nicastro is a righty.

This is exactly what I meant; he might or might not pass Lashoff very quickly. It's quite a difficult choice.
