Yeah, gritty 3rd line player, annoying to play against, right handness needed in a team full of lefties (different story at Anaheim on St. Louis), draws penalties more than takes, shoot-first mentality creates free puck in front of the net, TOP2-4 greatest takeaway ratio compared to our forwards, reliable defensively, power-play quarterback option etc.
Sure, he shoots wide and loses the puck at point, but those are only minor things that look big and people will overreact in them because they don't see those good things Sammy does. But Babcock knows them, that's fine for me, I don't care what people whine here. He is worth of his paycheck.
