He is a good player for sure, but he is a center piece on the PP where he is fed the puck (by Malkin, Mozyakin - great players) for a nice one timer. I'm not sure it would work on other teams with other players. He is an average player in Defense. Tough, but he really has to be with his size to compensate. He doesn't QB the PP and is not a PK specialist.

So, he is good, but I don't see him becoming a staple on NT in the future. At the peak he'll maybe make the NT as a role player.
