For someone who is "just average" on the defensive side of things it's awfully strange that he's out there in every major defensive situation and spends most of his time matched up against the opposing team's top line.
He's not moderately priced for a 4th line center which is what he should be. And yes it is strange to me that Torts has so much faith in a guy who fails too often in the dot, who gets knocked off the puck and his feet too easily for a guy his size, and who sees the ice as poorly as he does. I advocated Ani getting more responsibility in the D zone last year but he was often on the wing and his faceoff numbers weren't good either. Now that we have Halpern I am curious to see how those crucial times in the D zone are allocated. Anyway, Cally is the better pk player.
