He's the 4th line center and is ideal for that role. People are acting like he's making 2mil plus, the term and value are very fair.
He can hit, but not to hurt. He doesn't lay guys out. He just finishes his checks. He isn't particularly good defensively. He has average speed. He's pretty bad at fighting, but still tries.

If a guy is going to be a solid 4th grinder, I want him to be good to very good at one of those things.
