he's not very good at it. He can't pass and he can't aim. He just throws pucks on net.

TK simply doesn't have the skill-set to play with Sid or Geno long term. He's a good 3rd line shooter. He works hard and he gets pucks to the net. Very good attributes on the third line. If he had as good a shot as James Neal, it'd be a good skillset for the top 6. But he is a mediocre shooter, lacks creativity and simply doesn't know what to do when playing with higher skilled players. The hockey IQ just isn't there. Not to mention his lack of size. He will never play close to an 82 game season if he has to go against top defensemen every shift. There's just no way.
